Fuhu announces nabi Square HD, 4K action cam for your children
The folks behind the nabi Tablet for kids has been busy – their latest product is a 4K action cam, but just like the tablet, this camera is built for your children. Introducing the Fuhu Inc. nabi Square HD.
The nabi Square HD is a 4K action camera that is, as the name suggests, a cube of a device that has been built to withstand the rugged lifestyle of your active children, capturing it all in 4K video. Mount it to their bicycle, scooter or skateboard, it can take the bumps, here’s hoping your child can too.
Truth is, nabi Square HD is like the chicken nuggets on the kid’s menu at your favorite restaurant, it’s not meant for you, but it’s just the snack-sized thing you are looking for. Here we have a shock proof, drop proof and waterproof 4K action cam, with 8MP shooter, including enough of the right tools of an ‘adult’ action cam to get the job done. Not to mention, just like that kid’s menu, a price tag that is easy to swallow.
Let’s dive into the details:
- 4K video capture at 15fps
1080p video at 60fps or 720p at 120fps for slow motion
- 8MP photos, or 6MP at wide angle
- Automatic low light mode
- MicroSD slot up to 32GB
- Battery rated for 2 hours at 4K capture
- WiFi and NFC
- Drop proof to 4 feet
- Waterproof to 32 feet
- Android app
We may have liked to see a little bump in storage options and battery capacity over their non-4K version, which offers no usable internal storage, also relying on max 32GB microSD.
Fuhu is showing off the nabi Square HD on the Las Vegas floor at CES 2015. The 4K action cam will be available starting later in the month for just $170. An assortment of accessories will be available, including a dive case, action case, and various styles of mounts.
The Android app is free to install and works on most Android devices. We understand that Fuhu is looking to launch a small video editing app that will only work on their line of nabi tablets.
Are you willing to save a few dollars by purchasing the $170 nabi Square HD 4K action cam designed for children?
