MANILA, Philippines – Google at its event on Thursday, October 4, showed off a smart camera as its final surprise for the show.

Google Clips is a small, machine learning-enabled camera that you can clip onto items or leave on a countertop.

The Google Clips smart camera aims to mix artificial intelligence, hardware, and software by taking photos for you, as it looks for “moments” it can capture, which you can later decide to save (or not) at your leisure.

Not much else is known about the camera’s specifications as of yet, however.

The device will sell for $249. – Rappler.com
