Muku Labs Debuts Wireless Smartphone Camera Trigger


Muku Labs, based in Hong Kong, has announced the release of what it calls the world’s first wireless, remote-controlled shutter release for smartphone cameras. The device was created for various iOS- and Android-based electronic devices.

Called the Muku Shuttr, the wireless release needs no third-party installation app or plug-in cable connections. Shuttr instead uses Bluetooth to connect with smartphones and can trigger a shutter release from as much as 30 feet away.

Shuttr was funded in part by a popular Kickstarter campaign that reached its funding goal in just three days. The company says Shuttr may be ready for delivery on the market by this October. The preliminary retail price will by $30 for those who wish to place advance orders, the company said.
