New York designer, Ivan Stamatovski, hopes to raise $50,000 on Kickstarter to help social videographers capture professional video on mobile devices.

Wiggly is running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise $50,000 to bring to market the first motorized handheld stabilization tool for mobile devices. Engineered and built by New York-based designer Ivan Stamatovski, Wiggly attaches to a smartphone or compact camera, and helps social videographers capture professional looking videos while on foot, in a car, bike, or even from a remote controlled aerial device.

“Development process took months and several functional prototypes were made to get to Wiggly’s current design. It had to be sturdy enough to accept a range of different cameras and small enough to fit in one hand” - said Ivan.

The key design requirement was to make Wiggly as intuitive to use as a flashlight so that those with no videography training can start filming immediately. In line with this design philosophy, he chose to do without external sensors or loose wires, and made the set up process decidedly simple.

Ivan adds: “The image quality we get on today’s mobile devices has already far surpassed cameras and camcorders from just a few years ago. People are filming birthday parties, weddings, sporting events and even commercial videos on their mobile devices. Wiggly is the tool that everyone never knew that they wish they had.”

Wiggly weighs 11.1 ounces (315gr) and can freely rotate 720 degrees (two full rotations around each axis). It has a thumb joystick that allows the user to fluidly control the pitch of the camera. An optional extension handle helps videographers smoothly transition from low to high positions while maintaining perfect balance, and another thumb-joystick on the handle automatically takes over pitch control once the optional extension is attached.

“My team and I have big plans for Wiggly, from continuing to design brackets for different popular smartphones and compact cameras, to developing product extensions under the Wiggly brand,” summed up Ivan.

Wiggly’s crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter (http://kck.st/1gDOjJf) is currently in it ssecond week, and the team hopes to raise $50,000 before it ends on December 7, 2013.
