HD Waterproof Camera


A while back I wrote a rant article about my experiences driving in BC (available here). Well not long ago, while going out for lunch with a friend of mine, I narrowly avoided an accident, and my friend jokingly made a reference to my 'Driving In BC' article. As we discussed what we had seen during the point when our lives flashed before our eyes, my friend came up with great idea. His idea, was that I should mount a video camera on top of my truck, and record all the trips I take. Then upload them to my site, so everyone can see, what kind of crazy drivers we have here in BC. As we discussed this idea further over lunch, we realized, there were to many obstacles to overcome in mounting a video camera on my truck. Well I just came across, what might be a product that overcomes most of those obstacles. It's called the Poseidon, and it's a HD capable waterproof video camera.

Available from Chinavasion the Poseidon sells for $104(CDN) + s/h, if you're interested in getting one click here. It was originally intended to be mounted to a helmet for recording extreme sports, which makes it perfect for mounting outside my truck. Able to record in 720p HD to any SD card (32GB capacity max.) at 30fps, with playback through a standard composite A/V jack, through a build in HDMI jack, or transferred via USB. With various mounting options, using the included velcro straps, the car mount, or the bicycle handlebar mount. Waterproof (up to 10 meters) so you know it could survive a day at the beach just as well as a day subjected to Vancouver rains. Other miscellaneous features include Laser sight for accurate placement, built in microphone, and a remote control. Now I only need to find a way to run some power up to my roof rack, and we might be seeing a new segment here on this blog. 

I got so many more picture so keep reading to see them...

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Longboarding With Team Original

Love this video, makes longboarding look like so much fun. Do they rent longboards? Are there areas to longboard here in BC? Gonna have to find out and finally give this sport a try. Until then I'll have to keep watching this video... Via - LikeCool By: Mass

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.
