Graphics Project - All Help Is Needed! - Bike Cameras

So my project is advertising a motorbike camera, kind of like the go pro but with multi purpose uses such as a clip on wireless screen (can go on bars) with record and stop button. Specialised mount so the camera be mounted anywhere on and off the bike and a wireless HardDrive for the camera to store directly on to which can then be "speedy" uploaded e.g. straight to YouTube.


My idea for this camera is for riders to use it in many ways. They can record on or in their helmet, they can put it anywhere on the bike and record from that and it can also be used for safety e.g. Mounted on the back and using the wireless screen to see what is directly behind you. It can also be linked up to your speedo so you measure your speed limit, this is for legal reasons such as a crash where it was not your fault, you could use the camera as proof the other person was at fault.


As I stated it can also be used off bike, for example; If you wanted to get a video, picture or action shot of you getting your knee down in a corner, you can set the camera up on a tripod or even strap it to a sign or anything that is there, as a tripod is hard to carry on a motorbike lol. With this feature you can also using the screen check that the angle etc. is right and as you come into the turn can choose when you want to start the shot.


So I still need to design it but it will be a simple design that is discrete and is mounted on rubber mounts to prevent vibrations and a strong mount to ensure the cameras safety. There is also a strap that can be connected to somewhere on the bike and/or rider so that if it does happen to come loose it won't fall onto the road.


Anyways any constructive criticism is seriously welcome as I need to work on it haha and also would anyone be up for answering a questionnaire?


Many thanks,

Michael

Make sure the design includes the ability to plug in a microphone so you can record different things but mainly the rider talking. Also the ability to charge it on the bike with a 12v cable.


I could live without the monitor if it kept the price down. dogcam and similar video systems are too expensive for the likes of me so something priced between them and the cheapo £10 cameras we've all bought from ebay over the last few months would be nice.

Aye it has a mic in-built but I think ill add an external too. Also thanks for the charging cable! didnt even think of that will add that into my brief tomorrow :) and I guess the screen could be an optional accessory?

Just make it as small as you possibly can, otherwise riders will only be able to put it on the bars/side of lid. Whereas some prefer there's protected inside the lid (like you stated). A bluetooth transmitter external mic as a few £ optional extra would be nice. The fastenings will have to have quite a variety to them. Go look at GoPro's cameras for ideas, but you'll need at least a C bracket for the handlebars, and mount plate for the internal & external of the lid. However extra camera angles are possible and can be a joy, so some sticky pads or a suction cup that can stick it'self to slightly rounded plastics/metal (side fairings &/or tank) would be preferable. There was a topic a bit like this a little while ago, check that as he got quite a few answers. 8-)

+1 on the external mic, hate that my gopro doesn't have one! Small adhesive velcro patches for attaching to the rider/bike could work, the VIO P.O.V I have uses velcro as apposed to the stick on clip mounts the gopro uses. Tested the p.o.v at speeds of up to 140mph and trust them a lot more than what the gopro uses.
