It’s called Wiral LITE. A simple cable cam system that has blown away its funding goal in a few days on Kickstarter.
The Wiral LITE is a motorized cable cam system to which you can easily attach your camera phone or GoPro to capture stunning videos. Its unique structure is foldable, fits in a backpack a can hold cameras up to 3.3 lbs (1.5kg).
Cable systems are common video tools but most of them have not the easy setup, compact design or an affordable price of the Wiral LITE.
It comes with an intuitive attachment system, making it easy for anyone to set it up in less than 3 minutes. Just attach and tighten the cable, mount your camera on it and use the remote to move it along the line at speeds of up to 28mph. You will get pretty nice footage with this device, but adding a gimbal can give you almost perfectly smooth look.
People from all over the world have been testing Wiral and filming everything from demonstration marches to concerts and skiing. “The feedback we got from our test users has been essential in making Wiral as versatile as it is today”, says Marketing Director Emilie Aabakken. Wiral goes fast enough to follow a downhill biker effortlessly through the forest, but also slow enough to capture stunning motion timelapses. “It was exactly what we needed in our sport, it is an insane product”, according to Benjamin Friant, professional scooterer. After Redbull Magazine and Nitro Circus got news about the product they have tested the Wiral for some of their events.
