What costs $64 and can be strapped to the back of your cat? That’s right, Xiaomi’s Yi Action Camera that hopes to unsettle GoPro in China.
The Yi is a compact Action camera made by the same partner who created Xiaomi’s Yi home camera and will connect to Xiaomi devices via a dedicated application. For the $64 asking prices Xiaomi have offered some nice features including a 16 mega-pixel Sonly Exmor R camera which can record video at 1080 HD at 60fps.

Weighing only 72grams the little camera can also be taken to a depth of 40 meters underwater, yet doesn’t appear to come with a protective casing like GoPro’s offerings.
Xiaomi are offering two bundles of the Yi camera staring from 399 Yuan for the camera along, or 499 for the camera and selfie rod. International availability isn’t likely at this time so watch for resellers selling the camera.
