Motrr has announced pre-order availability of the Galileo Bluetooth and Galileo 30-pin for the iPhone. Galileo, an iOS-controlled robotic platform, will go on sale next month.
With applications in areas of photography, cinematography, social networking, video conferencing, baby monitoring, remote learning, and more, Galileo gives iOS devices "endless" possibilities of remote-controlled motion, says Jasper Eisenberg, marketing manager at Motrr. Using Galileo, your iPhone, and the Sphere app you can capture spherical panoramas.
You can also set pan and tilt controls for Galileo locally to create time-lapse sequences. With a second smartphone, tablet, or web browser, you can control Galileo remotely to monitor your home with one-way video, or participate in a two-way video calling experience. Swipe your finger on your device and Galileo responds, orienting itself in any direction.
With the Motrr Software Development Kit, app developers can integratie Galileo motion controls into their apps. Galileo owners will be able to download and experience a number of apps. The Galileo 30-Pin is compatible with iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch (fourth generation). The Galileo Bluetooth works with iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and iPod touch (fifth generation). Both Galileo versions are available for pre-order for 10% off the regular price of US$149.95 at www.motrr.com . Use code “galileoten” to pre-order. Galileo will first ship to pre-orders at the end of October and will be available for sale starting in November.
