GoPro just released its new Wi-Fi BacPac + Wi-Fi Remote Combo, a kit that we saw earlier this year which allows you to control up to 50 GoPro HD Hero cameras from a wrist or a smartphone. The Wi-Fi BacPac is an add-on for for GoPro's HD Hero and HD Hero2 cameras, while the waterproof Wi-Fi Remote can be attached to any secure surface to trigger a recording. While the Wi-Fi remote may be waterproof, the Wi-Fi BacPac has to be enclosed in the included waterproof casing before engaging in any watersport activities.

The current app (for iOS and Android) will let you customize camera settings, but the next version of GoPro's app will show a live-preview from any of the 50 connected cameras, all router-free. It will also tether to a smartphone, giving you the ability to stream your moves wherever 3G can be found. For those looking to share their adventures with the world, the GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac + Wi-Fi Remote combo can be purchased on GoPro's website right now for $99.99.
