The latest gadget from the Santa Cruz, California-based design company, Motrr, which brought you the Joby and the Gorillapod line of tripods, now outfits your iPhone with a 360-degree rotating platform called the Galileo that can pan and tilt giving you the control you need to capture panoramic shots, video, and track moving objects from a distance. This is some revolutionary stuff - so much so that you would think that the folks over at Apple were in on its design, but ultimately the list of its possible uses are literally endless. The Galileo is capable of moving at 200-degrees a second holding a iPhone 3G/S, iPhone 4/S, iPod Touch, or even a GoPro camera controlled with a swipe of a finger on a remote iOS device. It also features a standard tripod mount,  a built-in USB rechargeable battery, and a charging dock for your Apple device and comes in your choice of three colors, white, black, or green. Motrr is also offering a software development kit (SDK) for app developers to take the Galileo's uses to an even higher level. The project is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter and with a pledge of $85 you'll get your hands on one of the first to be made, which are expected to sell for $129.95 once the project  is fully up and running. Check it out after the jump.
