First revealed late last year alongside the new Pixelbook, Google’s Clips camera has gone on sale. However, almost as quickly as it went on sale, the first batch has sold out. Those that managed to purchase one before a new waitlist was introduced saw shipping times stretching out to early March.

The Google Clips camera is an always-on device that Google has targeted towards young families, although it has wider appeal as well. Although always-on, it is not always connected to the Internet. In fact, it only pairs with a smartphone. The device uses Google AI algorithms to recognize smiles and the people that it is capturing on a regular basis, to hopefully, give you that perfect shot of a special spontaneous family moment. It also records short video clips, but without audio.

The Google Clips camera retails for US$250 and comes in the single 16 GB configuration. Combined with a Pixel phone, users will get unlimited online storage with Google Photos.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
