I don’t know these Galileo guys, but I want to know them now. After you’ve pondered this video for about a quarter of a second and fully comprehending the future of this device and others like it — all the way down to how it might affect your job, your future and your career path (for better + worse), consider kicking into their kickstarter project. I did.

Or you can always bury your head in the sand.

From their page: The Galileo is a revolutionary, iOS-controlled robotic iPhone platform with infinite spherical rotation capability. Just swipe your finger on the screen of your iPad or other iOS device and Galileo reacts, orienting your iPhone or iPod Touch accordingly. With applications in areas of photography, cinematography, social networking, and video conferencing, Galileo gives iOS devices endless possibilities of remote-controlled motion. Capable of infinite 360° pan-and-tilt at speeds up to 200° per second in any orientation, Galileo is an invaluable tool to everyone from an amateur photographer to the professional cinematographer, and vastly improves the experience of video chat for anyone needing to stay connected.

…and then when you like what you see head on over to the Galileo kickstarter project over here. Last I looked they’d raised $330,000 of their $100,000 goal. Not too shabby.
