    Just saw this on tv the other day and it really looks cool. Wish I should have been able to invest when they needed venture capital. Not sure what my $100.00 would have bought , but I think these guys are going to make a LOT of money. Talk about the ultimate "selfie".

    This seems to be along the same lines but it's a software suite. Called Coaches Eye. Here are a couple of demos. The thing is, it runs on iPhones or iPads and is dirt cheap ... seems like $5 a month or so.

    No, not even remotely the same thing. Soloshot is a mechanical device that fits between your tripod and your camera and will pan, tilt, and zoom your camera automatically. It consists of two primary components, the pan/tilt with a built in RF receiver, and a small, wearable transmitter. The receiver locks on and tracks the transmitter, thus allowing you to set the camera up and have it automatically track and either video or photograph a target of your choice without having to have someone run the camera.

    I would also like to comment that that dip on the youtube video doesn't seem to realize that most video screens are wider than tall and that all one has to do is turn the stinking phone on its side to make the best use of the pixels in most video displays.

    I didn't say it was the same thing. I said, in effect, that it was a product developed to record your sports activities and analyze them. Thus far, they don't seem to have recognized dog training as an application but I could see it. You could record, particularly blinds, on the system and get not only one but two shown in synch. You could then use it to compare two dogs or to compare a dog's two performances. You could also send to owners a progress report that is visual, arked ujp, and in email in a snap. Further, you can do this for about $5 a month. For pros that host seminars, think of the uses....show what to do and not to do in parallel.

    If you are so literal you didn't recognize the caveats in my intrdoduction, sorry.
