About this project
It’s hard to capture smooth video with your smartphone, we’ve all been there. You think you captured the perfect moment, but it ends up as a crappy memory.
We're FlowMotion and as adventurers, travelers and techies, we believe that great moments should be captured in the best possible way.
That’s why we made FlowMotion™ ONE - the world’s most versatile smartphone stabilizer.
Absolutely not! Our mission is to put an end to shaky videos and make professional videography available for everyone. FlowMotion™ ONE is developed by engineers, designers and professonal videographers, made for everyone to capture everyday moments.
FlowMotion™ ONE eliminates camera shake so you can capture every moment in perfect quality.
FlowMotion™ ONE only weighs 300g and fits in your pocket. Simply detach the grip and fold the stabilizer.
Mount ONE to any camera mount, GoPro mount or to the optional carbon extension pole. The grip and joystick enable you to control the stabilizer, even while using the extension pole.
Share vibration-free and professional looking videos on Snapchat and Instagram.
Advanced auto follow technology built into the FlowMotion™ app allows you to always have YOU, or someone you care about in focus. Simply mark the person on the screen, and ONE will follow and keep them in the frame, no matter how they move.
Live stream your moments in smooth cinematic quality directly to Facebook or YouTube, whether you are skiing, traveling or going to your favourite concert.
ONE is ready whenever you are. No calibration needed. Just press on and you're good to go.
In pan mode, you smartphone is fixed in the vertical direction, but pans smoothly when you move from side to side. Pan mode is perfect for most situations, whether ONE is mounted on your bike or on a FlowMotion™ pole or handle.
In lock mode your phone is fixed relative to all axis and stands perfectly still, no matter how you move.
In pan + tilt mode your smartphone will move smoothly in all directions, while at the same time, compensating for vibration and sudden movement.
Unlock the full potential of your ONE with the FlowMotion™ app. Access features such as motion time-lapse, panorama, and professional video shooting modes – or create your own custom presets. Use the app to view and organize all your media, and keep the product firmware up to date.
NOTE: The custom GoPro Mount add-on enables you to mount the FlowMotion™ smartphone stabilizer to your GoPro mounts. The FlowMotion™ GoPro Adaptor is for mounting a GoPro camera to the FlowMotion™ smartphone stabilizer.
Exact shipping rates will vary depending on destination, but will not exceed 50 USD per reward. FlowMotion™ rewards will be shipped according to Kickstarter pledge order. If you want your FlowMotion™ ONE soon, you should move fast!
Since we started prototyping in April 2015, we have iterated, redesigned and tested, over and over again, in order to make something we can be truly proud of. Using 3D printers, we have built a new prototype almost every week. Building the world’s most versatile smartphone stabilizer requires every single part of the product to be perfect.
Most stabilizers use hobbyist electronics, which are often overpriced and underpowered for a consumer-grade product.
FlowMotion™ ONE’s high-quality electronics are durable, energy efficient and designed with surface-mount components in mind. All parts are carefully chosen to be optimized for mass production.
Our state-of-the-art control system and algorithms is the core of ONE and keeps your smartphone perfectly stable even when you’re not. By using sensors and our advanced 3D stabilization software, three high precision electric motors rotates your smartphone (at 1000 Hz) to compensate for vibration and shaking.
Design DOES matter. Or at least, we think so. Collaborating with award-winning EGGS design, we created FlowMotion™ ONE to be functional, ergonomic, versatile and also to be rapidly and inexpensively manufactured.
We teamed up with our manufacturing partner, Protolab, almost a year ago. With over 30 years of experience they know how to get consumer electronics products to market. In addition to working closely with them on design for manufacturability (DFM), packaging and assembly, they are accommodating critical support on-the-ground in China and have sourced outstanding suppliers.
With FlowMotion™ ONE, anyone can produce professional-looking videos and share them with the world. Our team also has a lot of ideas for great products in the future that we want to build. But, we can’t do it alone. Right now, YOU can choose which projects and technologies become a reality.

Yes! We’ve made a FAQ section below. We’ll be adding new FAQs as we go along, and we’ll be keeping you up to date with Kickstarter Updates, messages, and via the Comment wall. And please, feel free to reach out to us!
Risks and challenges
We’re ready to start production of FlowMotion™ ONE as soon as this campaign ends, but as with any physical product there are challenges to getting it right and there is always the possibility of delays (sometimes outside of anyone's control). In our efforts to avoid delays and manufacture the best stabilizer possible, we are selective in how we choose our partners, conservative in setting our timelines, and, we intend to spend a large amount of time in person at the factory.
Quality control remains a major focus for us. With our partners we are implementing systems to catch as many product issues as possible before FlowMotion™ ONE makes its way into your hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
