The Edgertronic high speed video camera has reached its funding target on Kickstarter

Whether it's a bursting water balloon or the flapping wings of a bird, super slow-motion video can reveal the incredible nature of seemingly mundane events. But this footage doesn't come cheap. With typical set-ups costing in excess of US$30,000, its use is often limited to those with mega-budgets. The Edgertronic high speed video camera aims to to change that, by offering pro specs with a (relatively) affordable price-tag.  Read More
