Australian company Gyromatic has launched an IndieGoGo project to help fund the commercialisation of its Go2X Gimbal Stabiliser in the United States. The Go2X device is made up of a plastic and rubber grip housing with legs and a sliding on/off switch, a mobile screen or device support stand, a adjustable CNC aluminium gimbal assembly with 2 x custom made rewound brushless motors. The assembly also houses an IMU (inertial measurement unit) on the camera carriage frame and a controller on the back of the mobile device mount. "The technology we use is a disruption to the Gyro stabilised platform industry which has long held a strangle hold on stabilisation," the company says. "We use the Simple Brushless Gimble Controller with its main advantages being no backlash in the gear, instantaneous response and low weight... Whether you are filming an action sequence, filming from a boat, helicopter or camel, interviewing a punter or jumping off a cliff, the result you get from filming with the Go2X is second to none." Interested readers are encouraged to visit the project's IndieGoGo page and make a contribution.
