Swivl by Satarii is the mobile accessory that is also your personal cameraman. It enables you to take hands-free videos while always keeping you centered in the action by following a sensor marker. The sensor marker offers video controls via the Swivl app. The Swivl app is a video application that will be compatible with iPhone 4, 4s and 4th Gen iPod Touch.
Swivl tracks you horizontally and vertically to keep you within the image frame at all times. It makes shooting video and Apple FaceTime a breeze. Just dock your iPhone in Swivl, and start recording yourself. Swivl will track you so you stay centered in the frame.
Swivl is a sensor enabled and motorized base for your mobile video device with a paired marker. You can hold the marker like a remote control or wear it and forget it. The sensor connection allows the base to “follow you” and keeps you in the camera field of view. This technology combination is ideal for capturing video of yourself for vlogging, sports, education and more.
Satarii is also developing mobile applications to improve the video capture experience and post production, and for deployment of the product in other market uses.
This product seems ideal for video bloggers (vloggers), journalists or anyone who wants to have fun recording self-made videos. It also works with Apple's FaceTime chatting so you don't have to sit still.
