Google launched the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL yesterday grabbing attention globally. The technology giant is ready to take on Apple's latest smartphones iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus along with a much anticipated iPhone X releasing in November. However, Google has also introduced a fairly innovative technology in the field of photography that has managed to surprise enthusiasts. Google Clips is a small pocket-sized camera that uses Artificial Intelligence to capture memorable pictures and videos automatically.
The feature is undoubtedly new and has not been seen on any other imaging device so far. The camera uses artificial intelligence to recognize people and faces that it captures most of the pictures of. It then starts capturing videos and photos automatically of moments that need to be captured and is instantaneous.
Although it looks similar to a variety of action cameras available in the market today it actually isn't. It is a typical home camera that is meant to create memories silently. However, you can certainly use it to capture actions indoors or by the pool in your backyard without having to worry about missing those perfect shots. It also houses a shutter button right below the lens to manually capture moments. The camera has no display or viewfinder and is connected to user's smartphones.
As promising as it may seem, there certainly are limitations to devices that use AI. Google Clips like any other AI device requires time to adapt to user's activities and ambiance. Google Clips will retail for $249 approx. Rs. 16,000) in the US and there is no word whatsoever regarding the shipping date of the camera.
