The IR-Pod: Robotic Control without a Computer


Ever need to video yourself? Mounting your camcorder to a tripod and pointing it at yourself works, as long as you don't move. But now there's a better way.

Introducing the IR-Pod, a compact motorized base for camcorders controlled using a TV-style remote control.

Unlike our standard PowerPod product, the new IR-Pod needs no computer or software. Just mount your camcorder to it, plug in power cord, grab the remote control, and you're off.

Just push buttons on the remote control to turn your camcorder up, down, left, or right as you record yourself.

If you can change channels on your TV you can use the IR-Pod.


  • Does not need a computer or USB connection.
  • No need to be next to your keyboard or mouse.
  • Controlled by credit card sized TV-style remote control (not as shown).

Three Models

IR-Pod comes in three versions:

  • PowerPod-IR (black) for cameras from 0.75 lbs to 3 lbs (covers most DV camcorders)
  • Please note that the PowerPod models CAN NOT be used in an inverted position (ie. hanging from the ceiling) because they use the force of gravity to displace the weight of heavier cameras.
  • MotorPod-IR (black) for cameras under 2 lbs
  • MotorPods CAN be used in an inverted position.
  • TrackerPod®-IR (black) for cameras under 1 lb
  • TrackerPods and MotorPod models CAN be used in an inverted position. PowerPod models can only be used in an upright position. PowerPod models CAN NOT be used in an inverted position.

*All pods now ship in black polycarbonate (high tech plastic) shells and do not include cameras.

* Remote controls are now credit card sized and  NOT as shown.

*All pods now ship with a 1/4 inch, 20 threads per inch (standard tripod) nut adapter; for connecting to photographic tripods and rigging equipment.

Sample Uses

  • Use it while video conferencing to adjust the camera without getting up.
  • Keep your camcorder on yourself as you walk around the room.
  • Mount a camera in a hard-to-get-at spot but adjust its position easily whenever you want.
  • Use with a still camera to take pictures of yourself (still camera needs its own remote to activate photo capture).
