Swivl Leads Popular Vote for “Last Gadget Standing” So Far


Now that millenials have inundated the web with their Facebooks, flckrs, blogs, and vlogs profiling their every activity, they just need a cameraman to follow them around so daily minutia can be fully covered for stalkers everywhere.

The Swivl allows users to forego even the best digital cameras and top rated digital camcorders and capture hands-free videos that keep the human subject at center-stage using infrared and RF sensor markers. The Swivl holds an iPhone, iPod Touch, Flip, and GoPro camera, as well as Android phones under 11 mm in thickness, and can follow a person both horizontally and vertically in frame.

Currently winning the popular vote for the “Last Gadget Standing” at the 2012 CES Show, this motion tracking mount allows vloggers to focus on their presentation and not concern themselves with camera placement. Far more ideal for solo YouTubers than the best digital cameras and top rated digital camcorders, the Swivl allows subjects a greater range of motion and limitless field of view. Facetime conversations become all the more interactive and if owners utilize the Swivl app, they can also add a microphone, a feature that certainly competes with even the best digital cameras and top rated digital camcorders. Whether you’re a vlogger capturing a campus tour guide for YouTube or a parent seeking to take the guesswork out of filming your kid’s tennis match, the hands-free Swivl follows your subject 360 degrees, within a range of 10 meters.
