Hope you’re set to bring in the holiday spirit and cheer because we certainly are! Holidays are about family and a lot of us will have to travel in the coming weeks to see our loved ones. But sometimes, travel is impossible or difficult, so families are turning to teleconferencing and telepresence. People are staying in touch using Skype and FaceTime on their iPads or Android Tablets more and more these days. Here at Stage Two, we’ve been working on launching something exciting and innovative that makes staying in touch even better. We are pleased to finally announce the newly designed Swivl!
Swivl officially launched their Kickstarter campaign today, and you can check out their live campaign page, HERE.
As the first motion platform on the market, and one of the very first to crowdfund a product with technical complexity successfully, we launched the first commercial version of Swivl in Spring of 2012. Fast-forward to today, the newest Swivl will soon be ready to bring new functionality to homes, schools, and businesses.
The new Swivl is a multi-purpose motion and tracking platform for mobile imaging, teleconferencing and more. Sporting an all new form factor and design, the new Swivl works with new and old iPads, iPhones, DSLRs and Android devices. It packs a smooth, highly adjustable pan and tilt motion system into one sleek form and automatically follows you for self-captured video. It can make your iPad your remote control for your DSLR, or it enables engaging telepresence controls with another mobile equipped Swivl.
Support the new Swivl by visiting their Kickstarter page, and check out the pledge that’s right for you. If you have an iPad, Android Tablet, or DSLR, you gotta get a Swivl!
