Former Apple product leader creates security camera for cars

A new dashboard security camera may mean fewer punks will mess with your car.

Andy Hodge, who over a decade working at Apple helped create the iPod and the iPhone, has developed a “home-grade security” camera for your car — one that promises to take a video of anyone who sideswipes or tries to break into your ride.

The $299 product, called Owl Car Cam, is an LTE-connected, voice-controlled camera that mounts on your dashboard. The camera has an HD camera that points out toward the road, as well as one aimed at the vehicle’s occupants.

Hodge told The Post that he knew he was onto something after he and the Owl team conducted a survey of more than 2,000 people, asking if they had ever had a problem with a crash, dent or police stop. Of the 90 percent of respondents who said yes, 85 percent said they would have liked a video of the incident.
