Nyko Technologies Announces Availability of WormCam, the First Color Digital Camera for Nintendo Game Boy Advance
Free Downloadable Software Upgrade for WormCam Now Available on Nyko's Web Site
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 2, 2002-- Whether you're traveling by sleigh or by car this holiday season, Nyko® Technologies(TM) introduces a great way to capture the fun and play video games on the road. Available at most major retailers, the WormCam(TM) is the first color digital camera for Nintendo Game Boy Advance. From the creators of the innovative WormLight(TM), which spawned the portable lighting category, the WormCam attaches easily to the top of the Game Boy Advance allowing users to take, view and edit color pictures directly on the screen.
Appealing to the international spy in everyone, Nyko's WormCam is affordably priced at under $40 and also features a unique SpyCam mode that allows pictures to be taken while the camera is unattended. Photos can be taken in two modes, either by motion detection or time-lapse photography. The WormCam can store up to 22 pictures, which can then be edited on the Game Boy Advance screen or uploaded to a computer for editing and emailing. The WormCam comes complete with a PC computer link cable and image editing software. In addition, an internal battery allows the images to be saved until ready to be deleted.
Best of all, there's no need for a separate, more cumbersome digital camera on road trips with the lightweight WormCam. Measuring only 3" x 3.5" x 1.5", the digital camera attaches by utilizing the port located at the top of the Game Boy Advance. Once attached, the system becomes a working digital camera boasting a 10-bit RGB 356x292-pixel resolution. Equipped with a lens that rotates 180 degrees from front to back, it's perfect for self-portraits.
Nyko is also offering a free downloadable software upgrade for WormCam on its Web site at www.Nyko.com. The new WormLink software provides users with the following features:
