Startup Jigabot debuted the AIMe device this past January at CES, and it’ll probably be a must have accessory for anyone who owns a GoPro Camera.
The AIMe accessory is a small, pill-shaped tripod mount that automatically follows the subject while keeping them in frame in case you’re shooting alone. The small device swivels and tilts using unique algorithms powered by a quad-core ARM processor. The mount “sees” small infrared emitters worn by the subject, named Emit. And it does all of this while working in a 450 foot range. Weighing fewer than 12 ounces, the device currently has about six prototypes in the making, and will be priced at about $299. The AIMe Automatic Tracking Camera Mount will be available this June.
