Motrr Galileo Bluetooth Robotic iPhone Dock

Motrr Galileo

Motrr just released a Bluetooth version of their Galileo robotic dock, which is compatible with iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPhone 4S and iPod Touch 5th generation. The Galileo is a robotic platform that can seamlessly rotate an iPhone/iPod 360-degrees from just about anywhere, wirelessly. On it’s own the device is merely a nice dock, but when third party app developers tap into its capabilities, the Galileo can be used for video conferencing, time lapse photography, remote monitoring and more. Two such apps available now are Airbeam and Presence, which make remote monitoring more immersive, easy and affordable.

Using the AirBeam app ($3.99) with Galileo, users can turn an iPhone or iPod Touch into a real-time HD video and audio monitoring system, watching the stream on a second smartphone, tablet or web browser. Users can even set up multiple Galileos to view multiple screens simultaneously, thereby covering every angle of their home for a complete video monitoring solution. If the subject of interest moves out of frame, simply swipe on the viewing device and the camera will rotate to keep the subject in view.

The Presence app (free) also allows for remote surveillance over Wi-Fi and cellular data so users can monitor their home, garage, office or other areas of interest from anywhere in the world. Settings can be customized to send alerts and short video clips when motion is detected.
