If you need to be live and on the scene but can’t be followed around with a remote truck and its retractable 100-foot antenna, you need a TelePorter. The camel-case ‘P’ should tell you that this is not the final realization of Gene Roddenberry’s dream, rather a device created by Mushroom Networks, long known for products with goofy names like the PortaBella, which aggregates the bandwidth from multiple wireless modems to make one super mobile hotspot. The TelePorter basically takes that tech and adds some video wizardry to it, plus packaging that enables it to be mounted to the back of a camera. The result is live, full-HD streaming of footage straight from the camera and into the ether. Mushroom wouldn’t tell us a price, saying that it varies based on configuration, but unless your camera’s as big as the one pictured after the break we’re thinking this might just put a real hurting on your budget.
