Just new on Kickstarter but already fully funded in just over a day CineSkates is a set of three wheels that attaches to a Gorillapod Focus tripod and enables fluid, rolling video in an ultra-portable package.

“CineSkates can produce shots that have previously been impossible or only possible with bulky and expensive equipment. Here are a few:

  • Arcing shots that rotate around objects
  • Sliding shots that push or pull the subject into focus
  • Rolling shots that glide over the subject
  • Time-lapse shots that move the camera slowly and smoothly
  • Panning shots that scan a wide area
  • “Worm’s eye view” shots that slide just above the floor”
There’s also plans to work on a motorized version controlled by an Android or iPhone app.
Check out the video of it in action on Kickstarter.  Retail will be around $200 for the just the skates and a full kit with Gorillapod and Ballhead will be around $350.
