Motrr Galileo Robotic Gimbal with GoPro Mount Review

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWhen I create content – especially as a one person crew – I’m always looking for ways to make my cameras do more. When I saw the Motrr Galelieo last year I thought this would be a great way to do that. But not living in an iPhone world, it wasn’t a device I could use. Now, Motrr has come out with the GoPro mount to the Galelio. This compliments my video as I can now put the GoPro on a table or up on a tripod to pan audiences or get a timelapse of an event. Get the Motrr Galileo Bluetooth at Amazon About the Motrr Galileo Lets look at the unit itself. The Motrr comes white or black and looks like a hockey puck.

Gallery Hotel, Barcelona Spain – Hotel Walkthrough

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt was my first time in Barcelona and I cannot express how memorized I was with the experience. The capitol of Catalonia, this urban area is a mixture of old Roman buildings, designs by Antoni Gaudi and some pretty impressive graffiti. But my focus is on a hotel in the heart of Barcelona – the Gallery Hotel. Going in December means an average high of 55-60 degrees (12-14 Celsius) but a lot of rain. In the week I was there it was only sunny 2 of the days. Coming from a wintery area, the rain smelled more like spring to me and I was fine with that. About the Gallery Hotel The Gallery Hotel is found down the street of one of the major shopping areas in Barcelona on Carrer del Rosselló and only a block from the subway (Metro Station). This...

How HP Helped “Share a Coke”

The Target of “Share a Coke” Coke did a survey and found the “Tweeners” (between 8-18 years of age) did not know if they have tried a Coke before. They wanted to tailor a campaign around bringing that demographic in. Coke wanted the bottle to “Visually speak to them”. This campaign did just that. The results of that campaign – According to the Wall Street Journal, Coke’s volumes in the US rose .4% for the summer months whereas sales...
