If Satarii’s auto-follow dock for the iPhone doesn’t come to be, something is wrong with the world.
Using funraising site IndieGoGo, the inventor duo behind Satarii’s Star is trying to find enough potential customers to build a market, and eventually, a product for the market. The Star is basically an evolved tripod, that looks like a very miniaturized shopping cart. The iPhone mounts on it in a vertical position, and a remote sensor is attached to anything you want to follow – be it yourself or some other moving object. It works within 20 feet of the dock, and the base will rotate up to 180 degrees.
It can also be used for presentations, as it will easily follow a human hand gesturing towards scribblings on a whiteboard.
Satarii’s goal of $20k has been halfway met, and they have a perfectly working prototype.
