An iPhone accessory for video recording and FaceTime chatting, Galileo allows a user to pan and tilt the robotic arm holding an iPhone from an iPad. This offers a look around the room without any outside assistance.
Galileo raised over $600,000 more than its $100,000 goal. The final amount raised was $702,427, split between 5,227 backers. For as little as an $85 pledge, backers could preorder their own Galileo, which planned to retail for $129. Higher pledges were given access to special limited-edition Galileos, available in Kickstarter Green rather than the black-and-white model.
The first batch of Galileo iPhone accessories was scheduled to ship in June, but production delays ensued. As of press time, backers are expecting iPhone 5 compatible units this fall.
