The Picbot was created to help you bring your smartphone photography and videography to the next level. The advancement of the photography hardware on smartphones has steadily been improved from picture quality to control of the shutters. The Picbot will help you utilize these improvements by capturing the moment. It will be used as an alternative to selfie sticks and other mainstream products for the smartphone recording landscape. 

Picbot is a motorized mount that is controlled by the software when connected to Picbot's App on a smartphone. This allows you to access many great functions to create using your smartphones camera.

Picbot is a solution to creating steady timelapse. The Auto Tracking and Facial Tracking technology eliminates the need to be static when recording videos which brings a new dimension while being hands-free. The interaction is more natural when engaging with the smartphones when recording. There is no need for a camera controller, just yourself and what you are trying to create. 

Self Rotating Facial Tracking - The Picbot Rotates To Center The Subject In Frame While Video Recording Or Taking Photos

Picbot will center the frame on the subject. You can track up to three faces at the same time. Then will automatically take photos or videos.

With Video, the Picbot will track and adjust to center the frame on a moving subject while live filming and can rotate a track a full 360 degrees.

 

 

Capture The Perfect Panorama

After centering the frame, the Picbot will automatically initiate the panorama photo sequence. Capture your surroundings just by setting up the Picbot and jumping into frame. The Picbot does the rest!

Upload your perfectly captured 360 experiences to social media! 

 

Automated Motor - Capable Of Full Rotation In Either Direction

The Picbot can continuously rotate 360 degrees in either direction. With smooth rotation, you can use automated or manual settings to capture in all directions with steady recordings.

Use Your Mobile Phones To Create Gorgeous Timelapses

Use the Picbot to create timelapse using preset options or adjusted settings. Set the type of scenery, timing, and degree of rotation. Add a new repertoire to your smartphone photography game!

Still Motion Capture - When In Frame, Hold Pose and Picbot Will Automatically Countdown For Your Snapshot

When the subject is in frame and still, the Picbot will automatically initiate a countdown timer to snap the photo or start a video. Capturing self and group photos while being in frame could never be easier. Without setting the timer, just jump into frame and pose, the Picbot helps snap away!

 

1/4 Inch Thread Standard Mount For Tripods and Stands

Attach your Picbot to standard 1/4" mounts, adapters or stands. 

 

Bluetooth Controller

Pair the included bluetooth controller when you want to take manual control instead of the automated settings. You can spin, adjust the zoom, initiate video and photos with the controller.
