It takes two to video calling, and one may not have control over the two devices being used, but remote iPhone controller Galileo is here to better the overall experience.
The Galileo is an iPhone platform that allows panning and tilting of the iDevice (iPhone or iPod) on the other side of the video chat. With infinite 360-degree rotation and 200-degree per second speed, one can always follow the action, whether it’s classroom lecture, baby monitoring, time-lapse photography, or even real estate showcase. The dock also works as a charging station for the device. It can be controlled by iPhone 4 and above, iPad 2 and above, iPod Touch 4th generation, and web browser.
Makers of the Galileo also provides SDK, which would allow integration of the Galileo’s features with other apps or creation of new apps based on these features.
The Galileo is up for funding at Kickstarter, with a target of $100,000 of pledges. As of writing, it has achieved a little more than half of its target, with 27 more days to go.
