We've written about the Motrr Galileo robotic mount before -- it was first a Kickstarter project that received tons of funding, and came to market as a robotic iPhone mount. It shipped a bit late - the Kickstarter campaign ran in early 2012, backers didn't get their devices until late 2013, and the TUAW review actually ran in December of 2013. Since then, the Motrr Galileo mount has found a niche for those who want to take precisely controlled spherical photos and can even work with apps like FaceSnap to have the mount search until a face is in a frame before shooting photos. Now there's a new version of the mount available for owners of the GoPro Hero3, Hero3+ and Hero4 HD action cameras. Set up is quite easy:

What does this have to do with Apple or iOS devices? Well, the mount can be remotely controlled from your iPhone by the free Motrr app, and there are some amazing things you can do with the combo of GoPro and Motrr Galileo:

Already own a Galileo? The adapter to turn the Bluetooth mount into your GoPro's best friend is just $29.95. If you don't own Motrr's little robot, it's available for $149.95 - but you can get 20 percent off the price of anything in the Galileo store through the end of 2014 by using the code GiftaGalileo.
