Unveiled: Unique 1080p Action-Cam With Remote And LCD Screen

Not content with the standard definition on their X170 action-cam, Drift Innovation has just revealed their new HD version, capable of thrilling the pants off viewers with first-person shenanigans rendered in 1080p.

The 170-degree viewing-angle-lensed HD170 — kudos to their marketing department for the refreshingly self-explanatory name — also sports a ton of slick features: RF remote, 300-degree rotating lens, night-mode, an LCD screen and more mounts than a Texas rodeo competition.

The HD170 will be available in late July for $330.
