About this project
Most Gimbals use basic cradle/pivot arrangements.... We thought we could do better,
So we made this deceptively simple Gimbal, an affordable and elegant solution for "looking around". Our Gimbal's mechanism lets you aim a small object - a camera, a light, a laser, whatever you can imagine - with two degrees of freedom using a central origin of rotation.
What's in the Gimbal Kits?

Risks and challenges
At our minimum funding goal we will be able to deliver functional 3D printed parts. As our volume increases we anticipate being able to purchase additional printers to satisfy demand in a timely fashion. We ideally hope to raise enough money to invest in injection molding dies - which will be expensive, but worth it to deliver in volume.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
