Galileo – 360° Pan-and-Tilt Device for iPhone iOS

A Santa Cruz, California-based company, Motrr, has a Kickstarter project up and running at the moment in hopes of raising enough funding to get this remote 360° pan-and-tilt robotic platform for your iOS devices.
The Galileo is a revolutionary, iOS-controlled robotic iPhone platform with infinite spherical rotation capability. Just swipe your finger on the screen of your iPad or other iOS device and Galileo reacts, orienting your iPhone or iPod Touch accordingly. With applications in areas of photography, cinematography, social networking, and video conferencing, Galileo gives iOS devices endless possibilities of remote-controlled motion. Capable of infinite 360° pan-and-tilt at speeds up to 200° per second in any orientation, Galileo is an invaluable tool to everyone from an amateur photographer to the professional cinematographer, and vastly improves the experience of video chat for anyone needing to stay connected.

APPTAG Laser Blaster

The AppTag Laser Blaster ($35) promises to turn your phone (or iPod touch, we suppose) into a laser tag gun/shooter that works via IR and high frequency sound to let app developers create nearly any kind of multiplayer shooting game you can imagine, all without needing to block the headphone port or eat away battery via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Six buttons — including a pressure sensitive trigger and an oversized reload switch — enable plenty of real-world interaction, and compatibility with most Nerf and Buzzbee toy guns serves as icing on the geek-flavored cake.

Now you can have the classic with our Pac-Man Fleece Blanket! It’s fuzzy and warm, just like that feeling you get when you’re playing the game!

You win a few, you lose a few… but in the end, you have a great time! [via]

adFunture & G-Shock Collaborate For the “Master of G” Series Watches

Art toys label adFunture has worked with G-Shock on 4 limited edition Master of G watches, including Mudman, Riseman, Gulfman and the infamous Frogman. The watches feature the adFunture logo on the backlight and each one has very different graphics placed on the straps. Each watch design has been inspired by the various functions of each watch model.

This range of watches is part of the recent design collaboration between the two companies, as adFunture also designed and produced 4 Master of G robotic characters for G-Shock. The robotic characters were then produced into vinyl figures, that adFunture is best known for. The figures can be seen at various G-Shock Stores, and are given to G-Shock consumers upon watch purchases. All 4 watches and figures were announced and displayed in the SHOCK THE WORLD event in Shanghai China on July 22nd, 2011. [via]
