Action cameras such as the GoPro make aerial photography pretty easy providing you’ve got a drone that’s compatible. Usually the biggest challenge is managing, storing and sharing your footage. As a result most of us probably have hours of pictures and videos hidden away on SD cards or external hard drives, never to see the light of day.
Sugarlock – A new way to manage your media
That’s where Sugarlock comes in. The Sugarlock Action Cam Dock lets you manage and share footage through your TV. Just plug it in to your TV after a day of filming, pop your SD card into the dock and behold a gallery of all of your media.
Handily, it can be controlled through your smartphone, so you can navigate through videos, find and cut that perfect segment, and share it instantly to social media via a single tap.
The aim of the Sugarlock is to take all of the hassle out of managing your media. On top of allowing you to view, edit and share footage from the comfort of your couch, it automatically backs up your media to the cloud for safekeeping. The Sugarlock was built with the purpose of transforming what is usually hours of frustration into minutes of enjoyment.
Interested in finding out more? Take a look at the Sugarlock website, where you can pre-order your own today. The company has just launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndiGoGo, and is offering a range of options for early adopters.
If all goes to plan, Sugarlock will be a great accessory for pilots of drones such as the 3DR Solo, the Hexo+ or the upcoming Airdog – all of which rely on GoPro compatibility. As always, we cannot guarantee the success of the Sugarlock project or any crowdfunding campaign, but we certainly think it’s a fantastic idea and warrants some attention. Good luck guys.
