If you’ve ever tried to take video with your iPhone single-handed, you know that the image can be quite shaky. Even with image stabilization software, your unstable hand can really make your video look awful. That’s why you need to grab your very own Slingshot.
This device works like a tiny steady cam attachment for your iPhone. Snap in your phone, grab the handle, and start filming. Better yet, it even has retractable legs that allow the Slingshot to stand on its own on any flat surface. Heck, the top even screws off, and allows you to mount your iPhone onto any standard tripod or monopod. This really is three products in one, and it seems to excel as all three. You might look a little silly with your iPhone handle, but when you have slick, smooth video, you won’t be worrying about how you looked behind the camera.
For only $14 USD, you can get your very own Slingshot with free shipping inside the United States. If you live elsewhere, you’re going to need to pony up another $10 for shipping. Such is life for non-American iPhone users. To be successfully funded on Kickstarter, this project will need to reach $20,000 USD. As of publication, they have just gone over $16,000. If you want this to happen, and you want to grab a Slingshot of your very own, you need to pledge your money sometime in the next 44 days. Don’t wait for this opportunity to pass you by.
