Josh Guyot, co-creator of the Gorillapod line of flexible mini-tripods, has devised yet another brilliant way to support an iDevice for video: The Galileo. The attractive, cylindrical base—which doubles as a charging point—can actually be controlled by the viewer, allowing them to pan and tilt. If at first the benefits don't seem obvious, check out the video:
Guyot's Galileo has already been successfully Kickstarted, pulling in 150% of its target and still with 24 days to go. The projected retail price will be $130, but you've still got a little under a month to score one for an $85 pledge.
