The Most Powerful Arm Ever Invented

A great project sent to me by Tim Buesing – connecting a robotic arm to
Facebook and live video streaming.
All to sign a petition that helps muscular dystrophy patients (hence the robotic arm).

Will this change the way we shoot film?

The iOgrapher iPad Mini Mount is the first all purpose film making case for the iPad Mini. It will be made from high grade plastic and extremely tough. Users can add 37mm lenses to its lens mount area for wide angles, fisheye look, and macro or close up (lenses not included.), and attach lighting and audio gear on its 3 accessory shoes on the top. The bottom area allows you to mount the iOgrapher iPad Mini Mount to any standard tripod, monopod, or portable dolly.

On KickStarter here for a good price.

Very cool, but I am struggling to find a commercial use for it at the moment.

Amazing well worth watching for 15 mins
