The Amazing GekkoPod - The World's Most Flexible Camera Mount

Tags: Cell Phone Accessories, Lifestyle, Photography, Photo and Video, Selfies, Technology

Oh what amazing things our smartphones can do! In addition to their countless texting, calculating, geo-locating, newsgathering and other you-name-it functions, they take photos and videos, live-stream, FaceTime, Skype and make communicating with friends and relatives fun and almost like being there. But there’s an as yet unsolved problem: Where and how to hold your phone!

For example, I wanted to stream some stuff I was doing on my laptop to show off my website to the world. Meerkat, Periscope, etc. are great apps to accomplish this task, right? But how do I set up my phone so that I can type and move around on my laptop while streaming my actions? I need both hands free, not holding my phone. What’s more, I want the phone to be steady, not shaking so that my audience suffers motion sickness and turns me off in 3 seconds.
This is where GEKKOPOD comes into its own!

From the developers:

GekkoPod is a flexible mount that, like its namesake, adjusts to any surface and can hold handheld devices in countless positions. It has five extremely durable legs that can be contorted and adjusted to hold smartphones, pocket cameras, and even GoPros just about anywhere.”

At Cool iPhone, iPad Apps, we got our hands on one of these ultra-cool gadgets for review, and we’re impressed! As the description says, it has 5 flexible legs. Two of them have claws on the ends. One of them has a hole for mounting your devices. And 4 of them have special padded surfaces. This is sort of like what you’d expect an actual gecko to have on the bottoms of its sticky feet to prevent them from slipping.

The legs can be used to stand, on all 5 or on only 3, which allows the 2 claw-legs to hold your phone in portrait position. Or they can be used to wrap around almost anything to provide a stable platform from which to take photos or videos of any activity you can imagine.

You can wrap it around a fence, a tree limb, a handbag. Set it up on your car’s console, on your desk, on your boat or even on your bike. If you can imagine it, you can probably attach it there!

GekkoPod is comprised of 80% rubber and 20% stainless steel. More importantly, it can hold more than 1-1/2 lbs whether that is your camera or cell phone. It is absolutely flexible and small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Who needs a selfie stick when you've got GekkoPod around with its compact convenience?
