Flip's Action Tripod Clamps to All of Your Gear

Taking your camera out on your outdoor adventures lets you share your feats with friends and look x-treme on the internet, but be sure your hardware's strapped in snug!—Flip's Video Action Tripod claims to do just that.

The tripod works like a normal tripod. But that's boring. Using built-in straps, you can stick the thing onto your helmet, handlebars, or anything else the tripod can wrap itself around. We'd have to be pretty confident in that velcro's tenacity before really subjecting it to a beating, but it's a neat idea. Plus, the tripod uses a standard screw, so you can use it with any camera—not just Flip's stuff. [Flip via Gadget Lab]
