Created by Josh Guyot and JoeBen Bevirt, the Galileo Pan-Tilt iOS accessory makes video calling closer to a real life conversation than ever before.
The biggest problem with video chatting is that the phone cannot be rotated seamlessly enough to incorporate other objects or people into the screen without causing blur or some sort of conversation distraction.
The Galileo solves this problem by allowing the person making a call to use their phone, tablet or web browser to either tilt or pan the device and adjust what they would see in their screen. The phone rests in a holder in the mechanized, rotating device that smoothly moves to accommodate talking points. The device also charges the phone.
The Galileo Pan-Tilt iOS accessory also has the potential to be an effective tool for filmmakers due to its seamless 360 degree rotation, and plans are in the works to potentially incorporate the device onto GoPro Hero cameras.
