Motrr & Appologics Partner to Turn iPhones into Motion-Tracking Video Cameras


Santa Cruz, CA—Motrr, a robotics developer, and Appologics, a specialist in mobile video, teamed up to streamline the process of shooting HD videos and photography hands-free. Appologics’s Videography app, for novice and expert camera enthusiasts, allows users to control camera functions remotely while 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 pan/tilt their cameras remotely and Videography will allow the devices to follow objects, motion or colored objects automatically to keep them in the center of the view.

“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,” added Heiko Straulino, founder of Appologics. “Galileo will automatically detect and follow objects, motion or specific colors that the user designates, great for capturing your one 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 that enables Full HD video recording in 1080p with CD-quality audio, high-res still images, slow motion, time lapse, 16x zoom, Dropbox integration and advanced motion controlled recordings. Users can preview their photos and videos in the integrated media library and share them via e-mail, AirDrop, Twitter or Facebook.

The Motrr Galileo is available in two versions: Bluetooth, compatible with iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPhone 4S and iPod Touch 5th generation, for $149.95; and 30-pin, compatible with iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4th generation, for $99.95. and
