Google Clips is a lightweight, AI-enabled hands-free camera that captures spontaneous moments of your daily life automatically. “You can set the camera down on the coffee table when the kids are goofing around or clip it to a chair to get a shot of your cat playing with its favourite toy,” Google says. Machine learning capabilities built right into Google Clips allow the camera to learn who is important to you and what sorts of pictures you tend to keep. The device can also capture short clips or “motion photos” that last several seconds (without audio) and transfer them to your smartphone. The companion app, which will be available for Android and iOS, can also be used to operate the camera remotely. You can view and organise anything you’ve saved in Google Photos (or your favourite gallery app), and if you’re using Google Photos, you can backup unlimited clips for free. Google Clips is going to be available in the US “soon” for $ 249.
