This Awesome Credit Card-Sized iPhone Tripod Blew Me Away

Sometimes the simplest things are the most useful, but rarely something makes me shake my head at how clever and cool it is like the Pocket Tripod 360º has. I keep thinking "why didn't someone do this before" and "what a great idea that I wish I'd thought of." I'm still blown away that the angle is adjustable like that.


I like things this small and compact, as I travel constantly. I also have many occasions for an iPhone support of this type to watch videos on, particularly on planes. Just yesterday, in a restaurant, I saw a 4-year old watching a movie on a propped up iPhone, but such propping up was not solid looking. But this thing would work perfectly—this could even protect your iPhone from spills on a table.

This 'tripod' will be useful to me and I will definitely add it to my backpack. I think your readers would feel the same coolness in it as I do. I'm going to cry if it doesn't get fully funded. I needed it years ago. [Kickstarter]



How dependent is it on the thickness of the phone? What happens in with a thickness change on the next gen?
