With Swivl, your iPhone follows you

Capture those little moments in life with the Swivl mount. As a video blogger, I can't wait to get my hands on this product.

The Swivl is a movement-tracking device that follows you. Stick in a phone or camera in the docking station and the device will swivel to keep you in the frame.

Having a smart tripod like the Swivl handy could really change the game in user generated content. If you think about it, if you're out and about and you want to capture those little moments, you'd have to ask a friend or a stranger passing by to take a video of you.

But Swivl does the work for you: it will follow your attempts to dunk a basketball or track you as you cook dinner while talking with mom via Facetime. As a video blogger, my mind is racing with potential uses (although I haven’t tried it yet).

Swivl emerged from the Star accessory, which received initial funding via IndieGoGo. Since its earlier iterations, a tilt feature has been added so it can measure vertical movements as well as horizontal ones.

The device is available for $159 on reserve and will be ready by early 2012. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, Android phone, GoPro, or Flip. A prototype will be demoed during the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
