The Podo Stickable Camera Solves Your Tripod Issues

I'm not big on taking selfies, so products like the selfie stick do absolutely nothing for me. However, I do take photos, and sometimes I'm in them, and sometimes I wish it were a little easier to do. Enter the Podo, the first stick-and-shoot camera, which looks like it could honestly revolutionize the way we take smartphone photos.

I used to use the timer function on my phone whenever I had to take a photo of myself and I had to go through the rigmarole of setting up the timer, placing the phone in some sort of makeshift tripod, and then running into place before the camera shoots. The Apotop i-Selfie solved my timer problem, and it did come with a far-from-perfect tripod accessory, but there's still the issue of getting the perfect placement.

The Podo seeks to solve that with a washable, stickable pad that allows the camera to be stuck to any solid surface. There's also a magnet embedded in there just to make extra sure that the camera sticks where you want it to. Then you just step back and use the Podo app on your phone to snap the picture. While nothing is going to substitute for having someone else take your picture, the Podo is a pretty ingenious solution to a common problem. It also shoots video and there are several software features for the 8MP camera to take advantage of, but the real value is that it solves both the placement issue and the timer issue.


The Podo Kickstarter still has 13 days to go but they've already earned $372K against their original $50K goal, so expect these things to hit shelves before long. Check out the video below to see what the Podo is all about.
