Obsbot has quickly established itself in the AI camera market with the Obsbot Tiny 4K  gimbal-mounted camera. Its goal has been to provide software which can take charge of the direction to allow creators to produce content. The Tiny (and sibling the Tail) can serve this purpose, but for some a static camera is easier to handle, not to mention a little cheaper.

The Meet 4K, then, brings together the AI the 4K camera seen with the motorized device in a compact package that can travel more reliably. As such it feels ideally suited for those needing better webcams for meetings, and it can sit comfortably atop a monitor or laptop display.
