The slogan that drives Ford Motor Company is "Go Further", but based on its latest patent, it could also be "GoPro." The automaker recently filed a patent for a new GoPro camera mount that is able to rotate cameras, obtain car information and more. The technology serves to simplify the process of recording driving footage for car enthusiasts who want to take their driving experiences behind the lens.
As stated on the patent, the device has the potential to be mounted in various ways and locations, such as one's windshield or dashboard. It also is compatible with multiple cameras, expanding the limits of recording.
Another benefit of the mount is that its control may be relinquished to a passenger in the car, which could be helpful for filming another car in motion. It goes without saying that the mount would be especially handy for racers, who would reap the dazzling benefits of the camera footage as they speed around the track.
