self-portrait for still images isn’t an issue as long as the camera has a built-in self-timer but what about self-videoing? the biggest issue with self-video is following or tracking. when the subject moves, the camera doesn’t, thus resulting in subject went out of frame. three guys, Vlad Tetelbaum, Brian Lamb and Dean Hamilton has a clever solution that allows your camera to follow your every move. in essence, it’s an integrated tracking system for pocket video camera.

the product, dubbed the Satarii Star, consist of two parts: the first part is the ‘follow base’ and the second is the ‘marker’. basically, the ‘follow base’ is a swivel/rotating base and the ‘marker’ is the device that the ‘follow base’ will be tracking. a pocket video camera is mounted on the ‘follow base’ and the subject of the video will either hold the marker or clip onto his or her clothing. the motorized ‘follow base’ has a sensor that tracks the marker, thus following the subject. excellent for self action video such as skateboarding sessions.

this product has yet been produced and these guys are asking for support to make the Satarii Star a reality via INDIE GOGO (similar to KickStarter.com). for contribution of $200, you are essentially pre-ordering the Satarii Star and on top of that, you will get listed as a supporter and get’s a free t-shirt. check out the video after the images below for a preview of the Satarii Star.
