Motrr is teaming up with Appologics to add motion tracking video capabilities to the Galileo. The 360° motorized dock will interface with Appologics’s app Videography to allow for tracking of faces, colors, or objects automatically. The app and Galileo can also be controlled remotely from another iDevice or through a browser interface.
Motrr & Appologics Team Up to Transform iPhone Into an Intelligent, Motion-Tracking Video Camera
Automatically pan & tilt your iPhone to follow faces, movement & colors using Appologics’ new Videography app & Motrr’s 360° motorized dock – Galileo
Santa Cruz, Calif. – March 4, 2014 – Motrr, bringing high design robotics to everyday life, and Appologics, the specialist in mobile video, have teamed up to streamline the process of shooting HD videos and photography handsfree. Videography is the ultimate app for novice and expert camera enthusiasts, allowing users to control every camera function remotely while simultaneously watching the camera’s view in Full-HD from another browser. When mounted in a Motrr Galileo – a 360° robotic spinning platform for iPhone/iPod – users can not only pan/tilt their cameras remotely, Videography will even follow objects (ie faces), motion or colored objects automatically to keep them in the center of the view. Watch how motion tracking works here.
“Apple’s iPhone is continuing to grow as the digital camera choice among consumers, and we’re constantly expanding our partnerships with app developers to introduce innovative new ways to capture and share content,” said Jasper Eisenberg, Marketing Manager at Motrr. “Leveraging Videography’s motion tracking capabilities, Galileo automatically pans and tilts enabling users to capture fluid shots with seamless precision.”
“Videography offers all the features you’d expect from a professional camera, and pairing it with the Galileo allows users to capture footage without the hassle of standing behind the camera,” said Heiko Straulino, Founder of Appologics. “Galileo will automatically detect and follow objects, motion or specific colors that the user designates, great for capturing your 1-year-old’s birthday party, recording your professor’s lecture as he walks around the classroom, and so much more. The day-to-day applications are endless.”
Videography is a full-featured camera app for iPhone, iPod and iPad offering Full-HD video recording, in 1080p with CD-quality audio, high-res still images, slow motion, time lapse, 16x zoom, Dropbox integration and even advanced motion controlled recordings. Users can preview their photos and videos in the integrated media library and share them via email, AirDrop, Twitter or Facebook. Videography runs best on an iPhone 4S or higher (the iPhone 4 does not support detection, tracking and slow motion mode).
