Turning an iPhone into a pan and tilt camera. Motrr Galileo.

Boot Camp feature for Monday, September 30, 2013

Turning an iPhone into a pan and tilt camera.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It looks like a nicely styled charging dock for the iPhone.   But the Galileo from a company called Motrr is a robotic stand that can be controlled through apps on other iOS devices.   Motrr’s Jasper Eisenberg…

“Using an app like Sphere, you can create a spherical image of everything around you, just by pressing start.   With two motors in Galileo and paired with the Sphere app, you can capture all the images around you automatically.  And the other main use case would be in two way video calling.  You just swipe on your device, like an iPad or another iPod Touch or iPhone, and Galileo rotates.   So you can actually control what you see in the video call.”

It could be a good use for an older iPhone 4, if you’ve upgraded to a newer model.   The Motrr Galileo is priced at about a hundred fifty dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
