Thank you to Kevin Kunze for creating this video showing off the recently announced Guru 360 Rover prototype! In the video, you can see Guru 360 Rover zooming around NAB Show 2018 with special detail to it's unique wheels that make for smooth sailing.
The Guru 360 Rover is developed for camera systems up to 20lbs/9kg. It's visible profile is unnoticeable to single lens camera and almost invisible to 360 cameras. The rover can push or pull regardless of wheel direction, move laterally left or right, rotate 360 degrees in place, and also turn in an arc. Think of the Guru 360 Rover as a robotic camera assistant that is always happy to hold the same position and ready at a moment's notice to move when commanded.
Guru 360 Rover is featured in the photo with Guru 360 Air Gimbal and Insta360 Pro attached.
(Note: Guru 360 Rover was previously titled Guru 360 Cine but the name has been revised.)

Follow, Explore, Create with Minimal Crew Obstructions
This rover is designed to follow actors, roam real estate, wedding cameraman #2, or just explore the environment with minimal crew/equipment obstructions. How fast is the rover? Expect especially slow crawls, and at full speed a brisk walking pace. This rover is designed to work closely with the talent, allowing cameras to capture mesmerizing unobstructed points of view.
The Equipment Stand
Use the Guru 360° Rover for a single lens camera or a 360 camera. The rover’s equipment stand is designed to be used in conjunction with gimbals like the AirCross or 360 Air, along with an isolator, and camera system. The equipment stand of the rover is height adjustable. This allows the camera lens height to be adjusted for actor height or as the situation dictates. To help with ease of transporting the rover from location to location the equipment stand is detachable.
Chassis Equipment Loops
Equipment tie down loops can be found on top of the Guru 360° Rover's chassis. These loops are designed to allow for camera accessories like external batteries to be secured to the rover.
Communication to the rover is through a wireless remote with a range of almost four football fields (383 Yards, 350 Meters). The remote’s joystick offers fine granular control over rover movement. Feel confident in keeping pace with the scene and matching any change in direction.
Capture Dynamic Points of View
Enthralling camera movement at your fingertips with the Guru 360° Rover. Use the rover in conjunction with a MOZA gimbal running Mimic Motion Control, and gain ultimate creative control. Use the rover to push the camera into the action, pull back the rover for perspective, and match the dynamic momentum of the scene with the Guru 360° Rover for single lens cameras or 360 cameras.
