Remotely pan and tilt your iPhone with Galileo

When you’re in a video chat, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to pan and tilt the device on the other end of the call so you can get a better look? Well, that’s the goal of a brand new iPhone accessory called Galileo.

Product Overview:

The Galileo is a revolutionary, iOS-controlled robotic iPhone platform with infinite spherical rotation capability. 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.

So this snazzy dynamic iPhone stand will retail for about $130 USD, but you wonderful people can grab your very own for only $85 USD if you pledge now on Kickstarter.
