Slick Stabilizer for GoPro Raises over $100,000 in 24 hours

A new motorized image stabilizer for the GoPro cameras doubles funding goal within the first 24 hours. GoPro users really want this accessory.

The GoPro cameras have image stabilization, but it is not perfect. The Slick stabilizer has a motor on each of the three axes driven by micro controllers. The motors keep the GoPro leveled regardless of the kind of terrain you're moving on.

The difference becomes incredible obvious when watching footage of a GoPro and a GoPro with Slick side-by-side.

The Slick Stabilizer is also water-proof and can be directly attached on the standard GoPro mount. The added weight is 0.66lbs and the removable battery supports 2 hours of stabilization.

The Slick Stabilizer is available as Late early Bird perk on IndiGoGo for $209. The final retail price will be $229 when shipping in March of 2016.

The team behind Slick worked 2 years on the stabilizer. They took the inspiration from 3D gimbals mounted on drones.
