Anyone excited about the GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac? If you haven’t heard about what the new Wi-Fi BacPac can do, there’s an interview with GoPro in Oliviatech’s NAB coverage video (below) that talks about how it can control up to 50 GoPro cameras remotely from your iPhone and stream wireless video.
Apparently some retail stores have already received the new GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac, and are waiting to place them on the shelves, possibly any day now. Kevin writes in and just happened to grab one from his local Best Buy retail store. After not being able to get the unit working, he called in to GoPro and found out Best Buy should not have placed the items on the floor (yet). He sent in this picture of his Wi-Fi BacPac [Thanks Kevin].
Without the new GoPro firmware and software that has yet to be released for download, the unit won’t work, but it’s a good indication that the hardware is finalized and the software should be released soon. I checked out other Web Retail sites and it’s NOT listed, but if you visit the Best Buy website, you’ll find it in their products as ‘Coming Soon’. If you step in to your local Best Buy store, you just might be lucky to get one before the official announcement. Oh and don’t bother calling in to the retail stores, as they will just look on their computer and not the actual shelves.
