The Oscar Ramirez 'Astro' gadget is a twisting platform that turns your camera into a self-functioning, smooth-panning machine.

Time-lapse videos are the new thing as they're relatively easy to edit and pack a powerful 'wow' factor. The Astro will make your art even more impressive and dynamic by adding a controlled moving aspect to it. The device is made of three aluminium disks that can be set to control the range, interval and duration of your shot. It's as easy to use as a kitchen timer but so precise in its performance. It mounts easily to a tripod, supports different camera configurations and allows users to adjust pivoting speed -- effectively covering all the basics.

The Astro is being funded on Kickstarter and is available in silver or black.
