Pocket Tripod for iPhone Fits in Your Wallet

The Pocket Tripod can hold the iPhone both in landscape and in portrait.

Here's one of those clever accessories you didn't know you needed until you saw it. The Pocket Tripod lets you prop up your iPhone 5, 4 or 4S at any angle. At 2.3 mm, it's as thin as a couple of credit cards stacked on top of each other, easily fitting into your wallet.

The Pocket Tripod is easy to assemble, and it lets you position your iPhone vertically or horizontally. It's a stable platform, even at severe angles.

The pocket tripod is the only portable stand of its size that can hold the iPhone at the most extreme angles, even in portrait.

Another cool aspect of this product is the way its prototype's six pieces were manufactured, using a 3D printer.

I can think of so many times I wished I had a tripod to shoot video with the iPhone or to prop it up somewhere for a group shot using a timer. Now this clever contrivance will make it so I'm never without a stable platform, eliminating that loathsome shaky-cam look, or keeping shots sharp even in low light.

My only gripe? That I can't buy it right now. Its manufacturer says we'll have to wait until June, 2014 to get one of these little trinkets in our hands. It's a Kickstarter project that invites you to pre-order the Pocket Tripod for a pledge of $20, and it will retail for $30. That's a price that sounds a bit high to me.

Will it make it to its $45,000 goal? At time of publication, it's attracted 346 backers who have pledged $11,404 with 28 days to go. Since its funding round began just a few days ago on May 30, it looks like the Pocket Tripod will achieve its goal with ease. Sign us up.
