PREVIEWED: Polaroid Cube action cam

CES 2015, Las Vegas: tiny HD ‘lifestyle action cam’ with a 90 minute battery

Polaroid CubeGoing on a tiny adventure? Like to share? Action cameras are ten-a-penny in Las Vegas this year, sure-fire evidence that the days of the high-end GoPro are almost at an end.

Instant gratification

No bigger than a Satsuma, Polaroid’s cute Cube is a ‘HD lifestyle action cam’ that records still images in six megapixels and shoots video in HD. Despite its small size the battery lasts for 90 minutes, which might not sound much, but that’s probably longer than the daring adventure you’re about to film.

Go anywhere

Waterproof and wearable, the Cube is very strongly magnetic, so clips to handlebars and helmets easily. It’s sold in black, red and blue.
