What a cool product! I haven’t played with this product in person yet, or seen it in person, but reading about it, it seems super cool. So anyways, Motr has just announced the pre-order availability of the Galileo Bluetooth and Galileo 30-pin for iPhone now through the end of October. Galileo, a revolutionary iOS-controlled robotic iPhone platform with infinite spherical rotation capability, brings a world of photo, pano, and video possibilities to iPhone owners.
“We are thrilled to release Galileo, a device platform we hope will inspire creativity and allow for more immersive experiences with people from anywhere in the world,” says Jasper Eisenberg, Marketing Manager at Motrr. “Motrr’s mission is to transform the way we communicate with each other and with the world around us. With an entirely new dimension of control, everything from video calling, time-lapse photography, cinematography, and spherical imaging get way more interesting.”
With applications in areas of photography, cinematography, social networking, video conferencing, baby monitoring, remote learning, and more, Galileo gives iOS devices endless possibilities of remote-controlled motion. Using Galileo, your iPhone, and the Sphere app you are one tap away from capturing amazing spherical panoramas. You can also easily set pan and tilt controls for Galileo locally to create dynamic time-lapse sequences. With a second smartphone, tablet, or web browser, you can control Galileo remotely to monitor your home with one-way video, or enjoy an immersive 2-way video calling experience. Just swipe your finger on your device and Galileo responds, orienting itself in any direction. Finally, you control what you see.
