About

We have been featured in many web publications, but how many projects are actually featured in the news?

 

  • Lightweight – 60 grams 
  • Tough – strong enough it can be run over by a car
  • Waterproof - now to 5m without a housing
  • Tech Friendly – apps available for both Apple and Android 
  • Low Profile – more discreet and won’t get in your way 
  • Adaptable – using different mounts you can use it anywhere 
  • Safety – Due to its small size and compact design, the Barnacle is much safer than current Action Cameras and less likely to hurt you when you're using it, or if you fall on it or with it 
  • Compact – smaller form factor than a credit card 
  • Advanced Material – a durable outer coating on the case, we achieve a super strong and durable action camera
  • Pocket Friendly – perfect for everyday carry 
  • Australian – designed + tested + assembled

We have now updated the firmware, which will allow filming with the Barnacle 2.0 sideways. This means you can mount the Barnacle 2.0 on the side of your helmet.

Barnacle 2.0 is the camera for you. With its super compact design, light weight and durability, the Barnacle 2.0 is the wing-man you need, and will be there for when you’re ready. 

With current generation mobile phones, they are always there when you need them, but sometimes you need something better, something more capable. 

 The camera for all situations.  How often do you find yourself wanting to capture a moment or film some footage. 

 

 

                                       
 

    

                           

                           

We now utilising the best electronic components available, and is now using the same chip-set as the top contender ProGO (not their real name). This means we are not only as good in terms of image quality, it also means we are now a real competitor.

Barnacle 2.0 features the same super strong and durable design of the original, with a few added features. With the addition of waterproofing, this helps to improve Barnacle 2.0 versatility and durability. 

Weighing in at just over 60 grams ready to go this makes the Barnacle 2.0 one of the lightest and most compact action cameras on the market. 

Using a strong advanced outer coating is amazing technology and ensures Barnacle 2.0 is the strongest and most durable Action Camera ever.

Addition of a screw-on a lens cover helps to protect the lens, whilst also providing an airspace so underwater filming is now possible.

Barnacle 2.0 adapts to your lifestyle and activity. It doesn’t matter if your like cycling over running, skateboarding over roller blades, snowboarding over skiing, skydiving over bungy, the Barnacle 2.0 will be there with you every step of the way to record the journey, share in the adventure and to support you when you need.

The Barnacle range has been designed with safety in mind. Not only is the Barnacle 2.0 super strong and durable, it is also extremely low profile, making it not only easy to use and discreet, it also makes it safer to use. The Barnacle 2.0 no matter where you mount it, will not pose a great risk to yourself or other whilst using it.

The last thing we want you to do is injure is injure yourself while enjoying the passion you love.

During testing we had numerous people reached out to us to let us know how they thought the Barnacle 2.0 would make it safer for them:

Skydiving - due to its low profile and compact design, the Barnacle 2.0 will ensure lines won't get tangled when deploying the parachute

Skateboarding/snowboarding/skiing - because of the  light weight design, and waterproofing without a case, the Barnacle 2.0 is less likely to cause an injury if you fall on it, or fall and hit it against something

Travelling - The Barnacle 2.0 is super low profile, meaning it is small and discreet. When travelling the last thing you want is a $560 (AUD) hanging off your head, or selfie stick and for someone to rob you. The Barnacle 2.0 looks like nothing else out there, and while it's still an up and comer no one will suspect how truly amazing it is.

Motor racing - Because of it's design the Barnacle 2.0 can be it's own mount. Simply stick some tape or velcro to the bottom and off you go. With racing, you never really know what could happen, and because there are no awkward mounts necessary, if god forbid, an accident happened or something unforeseen, the Barnacle 2.0 will hold on tight and won't become a missile or liability on the race track.

The creation, design and testing has all occurred in Canberra Australia. 

The electronics and components come from overseas, however as with the original Barnacle, we will be doing all assembly, packaging and final testing in Australia, that way ensuring you receive the highest quality and a truly hand built design. 

We have chosen a water resistant, highly durable black lockable case with foam insert this time to package Barnacle 2.0. This not only provides you with a case for your Barnacle 2.0, but also something you can keep on using well after you’ve taken the wrapping off.

Risks and challenges

This is not our first rodeo and we are back from round two.

We have learn't a lot from our first Kickstarter experience, and one of the most important lessons we have learnt is not to add to many extra features once Kickstarter is complete.

We have our manufacturers lined up ready to go, we have the design tested and ready, now all that is left is to achieve our funding goal.

Rest assured no money will be spent unless we know for sure we are able to complete this project. To many times recently have creators wasted money (booze, cars, travel), without actually producing the product they promised. This reflects badly not only on them, but it taints the whole Kickstarter experience.
