HydRemote is a new brand created by photographer Ethan Janson of Seattle, Washington. Restricted by the limitations of camera range and battery life, he developed a system which integrates existing remote controllers to his GoPro HD Hero and Hero2 cameras. Additionally, his need for remote control of submerged cameras has led to an inexpensive system which keeps the GoPro camera safe at shallow depths. HydRemote is currently exploring new methods of programming and controlling GoPro cameras with interval timers, iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and more. More information about these projects and how you can already incorporate them are found on the product website at http://www.hydremote.com.
