Ok, this is just too cool… The Galileo is an iOS-controlled Robotic iPhone Holder designed by the same guys that designed the Joby and the Gorillapod line of tripods. The Galileo holds your iPhone or iPod touch and can pan and tilt 360 degrees with a swipe your finger on a remote iOS device. This device would make a great surveillance tool, video conferencing tool or video capturing tool. It features a standard tripod mount and a USB rechargeable lithium polymer battery. The Galileo also charges your device while it’s plugged into USB. This is a new project on Kickstarter that just got started. Although compatibility with existing iOS camera and video apps is unclear, they will be offering an SDK for app developers. I’ve already pledged my $85 so I’ll be sure to get one of the first available devices. It will have a MSRP of $129.95 once the project is funded.
