Will.i.am to launch 14 megapixel iPhone kit
Music artists usually dive into launching headphones and clothing lines to complement their profession and celebrity status, but BEP’s Will.i.am takes it one step further by launching a kit that turns your iPhone into a 14 megapixel camera called the i.am+.
This iPhone camera accessory is not just a standard clip-on like the ones you see from olloclip. Instead, the i.am+ camera has a dedicated 14 megapixel camera with its own image sensor, optics, flash, and dedicated shutter button. It will be compatible with the iPhone 4, 4S and 5.”We have our own sensor and a better flash. You dock your phone into our device and it turns you smartphone into a genius-phone. We take over the camera.” – says Will.i.am.
So far details on specs and pricing have not been revealed but the i.am+ is set to be launched in London on November 28.
