Satarii Swivl

If the lack of quality cinematography during your smartphone video chats is starting to irk you, relax–sweet relief is on the way. Satarii’s Swivl lets you mount your smartphone on its motorized stand which then pans and tilts to track your movements, freeing up your hands to…well, to do something other than hold the phone.  The key to the whole operation is the little black and green accessory that you attach to yourself; that’s what the camera follows. iPhone users get the bonus of a built-in power connector, so you can charge up while dancing an Irish jig for grandma on FaceTime. We’re expecting the Swivl to go on sale in early 2012 for $159.99.
