There's a lot of interesting projects coming out of crowd funded programs like Kick Starter but the ClearShot invention of Mike Carney from Seattle is our favourite so far. Mike's simple yet ingenous idea is a clever plastic design which is small enough to fit in the credit card slot of your wallet but when you take it out it converts into a mini stand for your digital camera or smart phone.
The small size and convenient shape means that you can carry it with you wherever you go so when you need it, you have it. The ClearShot will let you position your smartphone or camera for a great self portorate, self timer or for a steady shot of a scenic landscape. Take a look at Mike's demo of how it works in the video below. Simple, but brilliant!
