Kickstarter Staff Pick Lumera Brings WiFi and Social to the Rest of Us

by Hugh BrownstoneLeave a Comment

Pack-of-cigarettes-sized, open source hardware add-on Lumera allows instantaneous transmission of your DSLR and mirrorless shots to social networks; offload to USB drive; and remote control of your camera via smartphone app.

For those of us with older-school cameras (read: no integrated WiFi), there is hope. Lumera is an open source hardware and software solution that knits together Bluetooth, WiFi and your smartphone to create a smart, social camera.

Want to upload shots you’ve just taken immediately to online social networks like Facebook, Flickr, Twitter – or something like Dropbox?

Done.

Want to remotely set shutter speed, aperture and half a dozen other parameters from your smartphone?

Done.

Want to offload the shots and footage you’ve just taken to free up more room on your camera’s card?

Done.

Want to geotag your shots?

Done.

Well, done once the project is successfully funded and executed. With just 14 days left, they are a little bit more than halfway toward their goal of raising $90,000, to be used for production.

We wish the team bon chance!
