Casio TRYX Brings Swiveling Screens to a New Dimension

Yesterday we got a sneak peek at a strange multi-dimensionally swiveling Casio TRYX camera, and today it was officially unveiled at CES 2011. The TRYX is a 12.1 megapixel camera that shoots 1080p HD video at 30fps or 240fps slow-motion video at 432 x 320. The unique thing about the camera is that the 3-inch touchscreen LCD can both bust out of its “frame” and also swivel, allowing the frame to be used as a stand and for the screen to point in all kinds of random directions.

The TRYX looks somewhat like a normal compact camera when folded up:

It’ll be available for $250 in April of this year.

    I like these types of things but I also think the hinges are very destined to break.

    Reminds me of the Pentax Optio X. I loved that camera, until I left it on a plane somewhere…

    Hardly a new dimension there – the frame is nothing more than a stand – all the lens part actually does is swivel as it’s on the same plane as the camera body the whole time. This is something camcorders and camera phones have been able to do for ages.
    Sorry, it’s more gimmick than groundbreaker.

    I don’t think anyone has said that this is groundbreaking, it obviously isn’t.

    This is not a swiveling screen, the hinge is the only thing swiveling…

    “New Dimension” would suggest that this is what was being implied.
