iPhone Motion Control for Video Calls, the Galileo

| March 30, 2012 |

If you own an iPhone you’ll know just how many things there are that you can do with it. I am always using mine to surf the net, play games, answer emails and much more besides.

I also love the various gadgets you can pair it with to make it even better and get even more out of it, like Galileo for example. This is a souped up platform for the iPhone which allows for movement when on a video call or any other remote application you can think of.

It would be great to be able to move the camera when on a call; the Galileo allows you to follow a meeting or watch you kids play around a room or the garden. This amazing gadget will be great for all kinds of projects including time-lapse and chromatography.

It comes in black or white and according to the pre-release info it will retail for around $129.95. The Galileo is a project on Kickstarter and they are doing very well, with 2,131 backers and a total pledge of $256,991 which is more than double their original goal of $100,000. They still have 21 days to go.

If you pledge $85, you can get your hands on one of the first batch, when they are released in June 2012. You have a choice of either black or white. There is also a special green edition for people willing to pledge $95. You can also order re-seller packs with larger pledges.

To get a better idea of what it can do; check out this video on the Galileo:
