Waterproof Chobi Cam WP camcorder is world's smallest way to record the great unknown

Tim Stevens

Whether you're diving for sunken treasure or just exploring the great expanses of your kiddie pool, waterproof cameras are great. But, swimming freestyle is a little difficult when you're lugging around pounds of photographic equipment. Enter the Chobi Cam WP: a device that is about the same size as cigarette lighter and, when enclosed in its GoPro-style case, is waterproof to 20 meters. It can record VGA footage to microSD, take JPEG photos, and even capture mono audio -- which we figure will sound something like "gurgle gurgle gurgle." It's available today for 12,800 yen -- about $140, which is a bit dear if you ask us, so don't let it get washed away.
