Today seems to be the day for delayed Kickstarter projects to announce that they're finally going to ship. Earlier it was the Narrative Clip (neé Memoto), now the long-delayed Motrr Galileo robotic iPhone platform is available for pre-order at 10 percent off list price at US$149.95 and will ship next month.

The device caught the attention of the iOS community last year when the remote control mount was first outed on Kickstarter. Galileo can pan and tilt a full 360° at speeds of up to 200° per second. An app will provide controls for the mount, or a web browser can be used from anywhere to aim your iPhone.

There will be two different versions of Galileo; one that has a 30-pin connector and another equipped with Bluetooth. Both can be mounted on a standard tripod, can work to charge your iPhone or iPod touch and have a lithium-polymer battery to power the precise pan and tilt motors.

Motrr has a full SDK for developers who wish to build support for Galileo into their apps. Already, the company has announced two in-house apps -- Motrr and Motrr LIVE -- and supports AirBeam, CollabraCam, RecoLive MultiCam, TimeLapse and DMD Panorama. Support has been announced for Sphere -- which will create 360° spherical photos -- FiLMiC Pro and IguanaLapse.

TUAW hopes to have a full review of the Motrr Galileo after it ships next month.
