I wasn’t intending on writting a new blog article for a few days yet, but an article on the coolest little invention has just come past my desk and I must tell the world.
Gorilla pod, it acts like a traditional tripod but “bend its tentacle-like arms it’ll stand on uneven surfaces, wrap around poles, tree branches, or railings, and grab onto nearly any object in sight“. These guys have just recently released a version of this device for SLR cameras that will support up to 3kg’s of camera, zoom & flash goodness, and it weighs 241 grams and stands 250 x 60 x 60mm.
It retails at around $50 but there are discounts if you buy multiples. The only thing they don’t tell me is how tall it stands on it’s own three legs.
