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.
For everything from baby monitoring to remote learning, time lapse photography to cinematography, to all manner of specialty imagining, the Galileo provides full 360 degree pan and tilt, can be controolled via your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or the web, and can even be mounted on standard tripods! The Galileo is rechargeable and can charge your iPhone as well.
It works with the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4, and comes in black or white, or limited edition Kickstarter green.
But the most exciting part is this -- Galileo has an SDK! That means Galileo can be integrated into full on robots. How cool is that?
