You can now control up to 50 GoPro cameras via a remote. That's what skateboarder Ryan Sheckler did—with a little help from four other people—to record his journey from the Manhattan Bridge to a Lower East Side skate park for a short called New York City. Sheckler's video demonstrates how GoPro's just-released Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit ($99) works so far. It's a neat innovation, but the best part of the product is yet to come.
Eventually, the Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit will let you control your cameras via a mobile app and livestream video to the Web. A rep for GoPro said those features will be released early this summer.
