A Kickstarter Project By MOTRR Called: “Galileo” – An iOS-Controlled Robotic iPhone Platform

It’s no secret that we here at Blurppy LOVE Kickstarter.  They have some of the most amazing projects going and it is by far one of our favorite sites.  While we were stumbling around their site the other day we came across an amazing new device for your iPhone. The Galileo is a revolutionary, iOS-controlled robotic iPhone platform with infinite spherical rotation capability developed by a company called Motrr. Just swipe your finger on the screen of your iPad or other iOS device and Galileo reacts, orienting your iPhone or iPod Touch accordingly.  With applications in areas of photography, cinematography, social networking, and video conferencing, Galileo gives iOS devices endless possibilities of remote-controlled motion. Capable of infinite 360° pan-and-tilt at speeds up to 200° per second in any orientation, Galileo is an invaluable tool to everyone from an amateur photographer to the professional cinematographer, and vastly improves the experience of video chat for anyone needing to stay connected.

Galileo Features and Specifications:

  • Infinite 360° panning and tilting rotation.  200° per second pan-and-tilt speeds.
  • Remotely controlled from your iPad, iPhone, or web browser.  Swipe your finger across the screen or move your mouse to control the movement of the Galileo and your device.
  • SDK (software developers kit) for app development.  Freedom to integrate Galileo functionality into existing apps or to create entirely new apps built around the movement capabilities of Galileo.  Or build software to integrate the Galileo with other hardware (e.g. camera rails).
  • Outfitted with a standard tripod screw, the Galileo can be mounted on any tripod.
  • Fabulous charging station for your iPhone or iPod.  Charges your device while plugged in (USB cable included).
  • Rechargeable Lithium polymer battery lets you use your Galileo anywhere.
