[Video Link] Christine Reilly and Michael Boczon designed this motorized handheld stabilizer for GoPro, called the STABiLGO. It looks good!
At just 1.5lbs, with a GoPro attached, the design minimizes weight making it ideal for action cinematography. A high-speed processor and state of the art gyroscopic sensor work in tandem to keep the camera both perfectly horizontal and vertical. STABiLGO allows you to film action sports as well as get that all-impressive crane shot. Produce more usable, cinematic footage. And most important, achieve it with a portable, handheld device.
You can get an early production unit of the STABiLGO for $550 as part of their KickStarter campaign.
