Google Starts Selling It’s ‘Clips’ Camera Today

Last October, Google unveiled a new camera: Clips, a small device that uses artificial intelligence to take the right picture when it sees something interesting. The company hasn’t said much about the device, but it quietly began selling it today.

The camera costs $249 and comes with free shipping, but at this point, Google appears to have stopped taking orders for the device. It’s directing potential customers to jump on a wait list, and will e-mail them a notification when the device is available again. According to Engadget, those who were able to place an order for one saw delivery dates ranging from February 27th to March 5th.

Clips is a different type of camera, one that Google is marketing towards parents who take a lot of pictures of their kids. The idea is that the camera sits in the background, waiting for the right moment to take a picture. Not everyone is onboard with the idea of a Google camera that’s always watching them, but the company has pointed out that the device does all of its work with its own hardware, and doesn’t send anything out to external servers.
