Product Description

Color: Black

Galileo is an amazing photography and video conferencing accessory for iPhone and GoPro. How are those related? Well, Galileo has two motors that allow you to pan and tilt with a high degree of control. This makes it perfect for rotating your GoPro while taking time-lapse video and awesome for controlling an iPhone remotely during a video call. Video conferencing can be a lot better if only the remote person could actually control what the camera is pointed at. Well, with Galileo and our partner apps, you can actually control the orientation of the remote camera during a video call. You control what you see with a tap of your finger. With the Galileo SDK, lots of app developers have integrated their apps with Galileo for even more use cases. From remote monitoring to multi-camera video shoots to face tracking, the possibilities are endless!

I purchased the Galileo directly from Motrr with great anticipation after reading all the pre-release reviews. Fortunately, the unit arrived before Christmas, and I was able to get it wrapped and under the tree for my wife. Unfortunately, the unit did not live up to expectations, as it died within minutes of being opened up and turned on:

Issue #1 - As soon as the device powered on for the first time and connected with my iPhone, the unit immediately wanted to update it's firmware, which it did automatically within a minute. After completing the update process, it promptly attempted a re-boot, and then died... forever.

All my attempts to wake the little guy up were to no avail, and even the Help details on the Motrr website on "How to reset the unit" were fruitless. Unit is completely "bricked" as we say. So I fired up my trusty browser, pointed it to the Motrr website again, and went looking for the RMA page.

Issue #2 - no RMA section on website, so... I fired off a quick email to let them know what had happened and asking for an RMA # to ship unit back.

Issue #3 - 1, 2, 3, & 4 days go by and not a peep from Motrr, so I fired off a second email, and now, not surprising, a week has gone by with no response.

Now my friends know well that I am a big gadget guy, and I could write volumes regarding all the devices I have purchased over the years, so getting one or two bad/bricked devices over the past 20 years is nothing to speak of. The problem comes when the manufacturer is "silent" with regard to a "problem" device in its portfolio.

First impressions are good. Unit works well. Will charge itself from the supplied USB cable and will charge an attached iPhone when one is attached (30 pin version). App support could become an issue but first tests work well. Future versions of the app need to allow motion in all directions and there needs to be a 'reset' command which brings the Motrr back to a rest position.

Would be awesome. BUT, the devices proprietary app has to be open on your phone at all times. If you leave the app, the device will un-pair/disconnect from your phone or tablet, and the device stops completely. You then have to stop recording, pair the device with you phone or tablet. The app then forces your phone to stay awake for the app. Because of the phone sleeps, or you receive a call, you'll have to start all over again. Simply put, you can never leave the app, and your phone must remain "screen on" until you're finished.

This causes your phone to heat up, loose tons of power, and you'll need to either turn on airplane mode, do not disturb or remove SIM card so this device will work without disconnecting if someone calls. And considering the iPhone and iPad all have background app refreshing, this is a dumb problem to have.

This device has SO much potential, but the engineer who designed the app interface with the Galileo, killed this product. It's a shame actually.

Galileo is a great device. I purchased it originally intending to see how the vision of this product would follow through – I had seen their Kickstarter campaign online – and found that it has surpassed my expectations. The apps that are compatible with Galileo are pretty diverse, and I’m especially a big fan of IguanaLapse and Sphere, both of which can take photography and videography to a new level when paired with Galileo.
Their shipping and customer service is also something to talk about, even if it doesn’t directly have to do with the product. I received my Galileo even faster than I expected. And when I contacted their customer support regarding apps that they would recommend, they pointed me in the right direction and even gave me some tips about how to use my Galileo most effectively.
I definitely encourage everyone to take this step in innovation. I’ve had a good time with my Galileo and look forward to where the future takes this company.

I got this to 360 degree pano "sphere's". It does a reasonable job considering the work involved with a real camera, tripod and other software out there. I mainly do interiors so the stitching of the spheres could be a little better but the trade off is that I spend minutes instead of hours getting a result.

I don't have other iOS devices, so haven't tried it as a telepresence yet.

Great. Have loved it so far. Does take a little getting use to and you do have to work with a number of different apps to tap all the features. Download the main Galileo app and it gives you quick access the many apps that are available for the Galileo. Activate/use the ones you want and ignore the others. I've played around with them to for fun and there are a couple of good ones. Since they change all the time, I won't say which I liked the best because by the time others are reading this the apps will have change, been upgraded, etc.

It's fantastic. I just wish I had the time to learn to use all the apps created for it. Some of them have rather steep learning curves, and some aren't designed terribly well.

The Galileo itself if brilliant, though. A marvel.

NOTE: Unlike the earlier version, this DOES NOT charge the phone. Meaning if you're planning to use it for the Presence app or some other home monitoring application, you will need the Motrr "reverse mount" which allows for charging.
