Applied Logic Engineering, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of their new USB-to-GoPro adapter that allows the user to control their GoPro Hero / Hero2 camera directly from a PC.
The system consists of an adapter that plugs into any standard USB port on one end and the GoPro camera’s 30-pin connector on the other end. All interfacing electronics are embedded in the adapter’s cable. A Microsoft Windows software application is also included to provide a user interface to control the power on and power off functionality to the camera. By programming the GoPro for One-Button mode, this system can command the camera to start / stop video recording or to record automatic snapshots. Additionally, the software provides a sophisticated time lapse capability for recording stills or video unattended over a long period of time.
The uses for this system are endless — from laboratories to field research to studio work, the combination of the GoPro Hero camera and this control system provides a very powerful tool in many different applications.
