Swivl iPhone mount tracks your movement

Check out this great new product, the Swivl iPhone mount.

Under the hood, Swivl is a sensor enabled and motorized base for your mobile video device with a paired marker. You can hold the marker like a remote control or wear it and forget it. The sensor connection allows the base to “follow you” and keeps you in the camera field of view. This technology combination is ideal for capturing video of yourself for vlogging, sports, education and more.

But it’s also the basis for much more. We’re developing mobile applications to improve the video capture experience and post production, and for deployment of the product in other market uses. The Swivl accessory is the foundation for much more.

This device is going to be great for so many applications as shown in their video below:
