1. Learning how to use the Galileo motorized iPhone dock by MOTRR. This is a moderately successful test run with the iOS TimeLapse app, the Galileo robot and an old iPhone 4. Video of the Pacific Beach boardwalk shot from the balcony of the OCean Park Inn.

  2. Another test of my new Galileo robot. Pretty, but the Galileo dock was slightly tilted on the tripod. The lesson here: Precision counts. It looked level to my eye, but even a slightly off-kilter horizon is glaringly obvious in a finished video.

  3. This is my first successful experiment with the Galileo motorized iPhone dock by MOTRR. I used the iOS TimeLapse app, which has been updated to allow simple settings to be passed from my old iPhone 4 to the Galileo when the recording starts.

    I backed MOTRR on Kickstarter last year, and received two units right before my summer vacation. This shot was taken from my hotel balcony and encompasses about four hours of realtime.

  4. A time lapse video of a round-trip drive between Tucson and Nogales, Arizona. Apparent speed exceeds 800 miles per hour, which gets you from Tucson to the Mexican border in a breathtaking 90 seconds.

    Shot with TimeLapse app on my old iPhone 4. Edited in iMovie on iPhone 5s. I used a Joby Gorillapod to clamp the phone to my sun visor.
