Waylens is a Really Cool Dashcam which Automatically Captures Interesting Clips

If you are looking for yet another cool dashcam to try with your car, then you need to have a look at Waylens, which is currently seeking crowdfunding on Kickstarter. Waylens is described as “a beautifully crafted camera system that empowers drivers to easily capture, edit, and share interesting moments right from the road“.

Waylens has been designed with drivers in mind, as it can capture, manage and store all your best moments behind the wheel. Once started, the camera will automatically capture interesting clips based on your driving data. It also comes with a free companion mobile app which allows users to quickly identify and share their most interesting moments within hours of footage.

The camera works with any vehicle with an OBD-II port and brings a range of internal sensors: 10 Hz GPS, 9 axis motion sensor (gyro, accelerometer, magnetometer), barometer. It also gets a OLED display which doubles as a user customizable gauge, bringing up any of the supported OBD-II codes in real time.

The Waylens mobile app features powerful editing tools through a simple interface. The Waylens camera can be mounted to a windshield by using the suction cup mount. You can also rotate it 360 degrees, allowing you to capture the road or moments happening inside the car.

By plugging right into your car’s diagnostics port, Waylens can pull vital information about your drive, such as the road speed, engine speed, boost pressure and overlay it on the resulting video. It also makes use of the microphones, so you will have sound in your videos, as well. The data supplied from the car is also used for on-the-fly editing. The app will figure out which parts of your trip are boring and will cut them. There’s also a remote attached to the steering wheel, allowing you to quickly share your videos on social media, to brag in front of your friends or just to share a beautiful view.

At the time of writing this, the company has already obtained almost $350,000 from the initial goal of $55,000, with 21 days to go. You can get one for $299 ($200 off retail price), which includes the following – camera, vehicle OBD-II data connector, steering wheel remote, mount, and charging cable.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
