SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Soloshot Inc. today announced they have met their $50,000 goal on the world's largest crowd funding platform for creative projects – Kickstarter – 23 days ahead of schedule. Soloshot Inc.'s Kickstarter project will continue to take pledges and offer discounted SOLOSHOTs as rewards through August 30. The company's new SOLOSHOT automatic cameraman tripod system lets athletes, parents, and filmmakers get video footage of the action without needing someone to hold a camera - it automatically keeps almost any camera pointed towards the subject. SOLOSHOT will track and film moving subjects at speeds as fast as 140 mph and at distances up to 2000 feet. Its maximum rotating speed is 40 degrees per second and the internal rechargeable batteries last more than five hours. It is perfect for sports enthusiasts such as surfers, soccer or baseball players, water or snow skiers, skateboarders, those who race motorcycles, cars, or horses and more. Parents can film their kids playing sports while tech, gadget and professional videographers or filmmakers will benefit from the convenience of obtaining video footage without the assistance of another person. Soloshot Inc. was founded by board-sport loving engineers Chris Boyle and Scott Taylor.
"We are very excited to have reached our Kickstarter goal," said Soloshot Inc. Co-Founder Scott Taylor. "These funds will allow us to scale up our manufacturing facility – making it possible for us to continue producing SOLOSHOT ourselves in the USA."
Soloshot Inc. designs and manufactures SOLOSHOT in the USA. Currently each SOLOSHOT is made by hand and they are available for purchase on SOLOSHOT.com. The funds from the Kickstarter project will be used to purchase components in bulk and set up a high volume assembly line in the USA. Discounted SOLOSHOTs are available through the Kickstarter project until August 30. SOLOSHOT is a tripod base that communicates with a small waterproof transponder that is attached to a comfortable armband. Simply mount a camera to the tripod base and slide the armband on to the subject. After an easy pairing sequence, the base automatically rotates as needed to continually keep the camera pointed at the subject wearing the armband. Any camera, up to five pounds, that can attach to a standard tripod will attach to the SOLOSHOT base. The pairing sequence allows multiple SOLOSHOT systems to be used in the same location without interference.
An LED on the base shines in the direction of the camera letting the user know the camera is still pointed at them. A custom waterproofing and shock-proofing technique, developed by Soloshot Inc., allows the armband sensor to withstand the most demanding ocean and sporting environments. The one-size-fits-all elastic armband strap is comfortable and made of non-corrosive nylon. The included professional tripod extends to five feet tall and features collapsible legs for easy traveling and has a wide stance option for windy days. The charger fits U.S. outlets and works with international outlets up to 220V with a standard adaptor (adaptor not included).
SOLOSHOT is available for $479 at http://www.soloshot.com. Discounted SOLOSHOTs are available as low as $299 through the Kickstarter project until August 30. Like SOLOSHOT on Facebook. Check out SOLOSHOT's amazing YouTube Channel for hot SOLOSHOT action.
