Slingshot: New Kickstarter for Mobile Phone Video

I donated to this Kickstarter and ordered myself one because I think its a really great tool and stands out from the rest for a number of reasons.

  1. It serves as both a steadicam and mini tripod
  2. It unscrews giving you the ability to attach your mobile phone to a standard tripod
  3. It has a flexible build and will fit any phone

For me number 3 is a big deal because most tripod mounts out there are normally made specifically for the iPhone and cant fit other phones, now you might wonder, why is that a problem for you since you have an iPhone, well the issue is Apple changes the body of their phone every few years and I am tired of buying new accessories for each phone. Also for $14 this thing is a great deal.

Check it out on Kickstarter, they have a lot of material explaining the build, how it can fit a variety of phones and all the other features.

Another great animated film from the Blender Foundation, this is on par with almost any Dream Works movie I have seen out there, it really proves that if you want to make a successful film the free open source tools are out there. For more info on the project visit http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/
