Statc Magnetic Pod

For us, even regular point-and-shoots are annoying to carry around – we’ll do it, though we won’t like a second of it, and we’ll be complaining all along. Now imagine having to lug around a heavy tripod too. Statc is a new remedy for this – no, not for our laziness but rather to minimize the need for tripods. Think TiltPod on steroids, the machined-aluminium Statc has a standard camera tread, a 360° ball joint with locking knob and strong magnets in its plastic-coated base, letting you set up the perfect shot off any metal object. Compatible with a variety of devices, though the creators suggest a camera weight limit of 2 lbs.
