If you’re a blogger, a traveler, or you simply like to create great shots with your smartphone, you may want to look into the Picbot.  It has fully automated self-rotating facial tracking capabilities so you can walk around a room and stay centered and focused during your video. It has the ability to track more than one person as well, so you could shoot a creative holiday skit or movie with your friends and family to share this season.  You can create either 180 or 360 degree panoramas and the Picbots automation does it all for you, so you can be in the photo. Another great feature is the ability to create a timelapse which is so fun to do during parties, or family gatherings. If you’re more of a take control kind of person, you can forgo the automation and pair the included Bluetooth controller to spin, adjust the zoom and snap photos and videos with the touch of a button.  It comes in black, white and rose gold and can be mounted on a standard 1/4″ tripod or stand. The fully intuitive app makes it a breeze to shoot and edit all your pics to share on your favorite social media sites or you can store them in the cloud for safe keeping.  You can still preorder on the fully funded Kickstarter campaign for an estimated delivery of Dec. 2016 for $99.00 (retail is $200.00), plus you get a mini tripod to go along with it. Check out the campaign for some great videos on all the features and more detailed information.
