I first heard about Swivl sometime last year when they launched their Kickstarter. It looks like funding for the first version of the Swivl was successful and now the company is re-launching the Swivl with a strong drive towards practical use in an educational setting.

The Swivl is a unique follow-spot of sorts for an iPad. With the Swivl receiver in tow, the Swivl can move to always have the iPad’s camera pointed at you even when you move around in a lecture/classroom setting. I like the idea and the newer design is definitely more appealing than the last.
