With the RE you can explore your creative side with simple slow-motion and time-lapse recording options. It’s also waterproof
out of the box, without needing any additional casing or protection.
Peter Chou, CEO at HTC said “Once people get a RE in their hands, they won’t want to put it down. This is everybody’s opportunity to get out from behind the lens and start living in the moment again.”

HTC has also added an open API/SDK that allows HTC developers to develop new capabilities for the RE across social networks.
