The Galileo is a motorized iPhone holder that allows a remote user to pan or tilt the phone 360 degrees to leverage a better view with the camera. Galileo was invented by the same minds behind the popular Gorillapod tripod, Josh Guyot and JoeBen Bevirt.
To use Galileo, the person receiving the video call would place their phone in the device. The person making the call could then use their iPhone, iPad or web browser to pan or tilt the device, using either a touchscreen interface or their mouse.
Power is provided through a USB cable, or by the onboard rechargeable battery. The dock can also serve as a charging station for the phone and is expected to retail for $129.95
