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.

Apple is set to announce its much-anticipated iPad 3 during the first week of March, according to sources for All Things D. It’s unclear when the device will actually launch, but it is said be “pretty much what we’ve been led to expect by the innumerable reports leading up to its release.”
The device is likely to make its debut at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco — the location Apple has continually chosen for big announcements in previous years. And it is expected to launch around one week later, with the same delay between unveiling and launch that we experienced with the iPad 2.
According to the sources, the device will be exactly what we’ve been led to expect from recent rumors: It will pack a faster processor (likely to be Apple’s A6 chip), an improved graphics processing unit, and a 2048 x 1536 Retina Display.
This fits in nicely with iPad 3 components that were leaked, which confirm the third-generation device will feature new internals, but the same external design. [via]
