Picbot: an automated, motorized picture and video bot

I ordered a Picbot for myself and thought you’d be interested in finding out about them too. The details are below. It’s a fun little gadget that should make smartphone video and photography easier and also a little more professional-looking. I for one am looking forward to recording video using the facial tracking feature.

The Picbot was created to help you bring your smartphone photography and videography to the next level. The advancement of the photography hardware on smartphones has steadily been improved from picture quality to control of the shutters. The Picbot will help you utilize these improvements by capturing the moment. It will be used as an alternative to selfie sticks and other mainstream products for the smartphone recording landscape.

Picbot is a motorized mount that is controlled by the software when connected to Picbot’s App on a smartphone. This allows you to access many great functions to create using your smartphones camera.

Picbot is a solution to creating steady timelapse. The Auto Tracking and Facial Tracking technology eliminates the need to be static when recording videos which brings a new dimension while being hands-free. The interaction is more natural when engaging with the smartphones when recording. There is no need for a camera controller, just yourself and what you are trying to create.

Self Rotating Facial Tracking – The Picbot Rotates To Center The Subject In Frame While Video Recording Or Taking Photos

Picbot will center the frame on the subject. You can track up to three faces at the same time. Then will automatically take photos or videos.

With Video, the Picbot will track and adjust to center the frame on a moving subject while live filming and can rotate a track a full 360 degrees.

Capture The Perfect Panorama

After centering the frame, the Picbot will automatically initiate the panorama photo sequence. Capture your surroundings just by setting up the Picbot and jumping into frame. The Picbot does the rest.

Still Motion Capture – When In Frame, Hold Pose and Picbot Will Automatically Countdown For Your Snapshot

When the subject is in frame and still, the Picbot will automatically initiate a countdown timer to snap the photo or start a video. Capturing self and group photos while being in frame could never be easier. Without setting the timer, just jump into frame and pose, the Picbot helps snap away!
