If you often take serious digital photographs on your iPhone 4 handset, then you need the Glif. The Glif is a new iPhone tripod mount and stand, which is currently available to purchase for $20. Here's what the product's creators have to say about the Glif:
Small, simple, and elegant. That's what we were going for when we created the Glif. But out of this simple design emerges countless uses. Mount your iPhone 4 to a tripod for taking great pictures or making movies. Prop your iPhone up for hands-free FaceTiming or to watch videos. All of that and more in a compact design that is manufactured in America.As TUAW notes, after placing the design for the Glif on Kickstarter, the product's developers managed to surpass their funding goal by more than ten times. Now, with almost $140,000 pledged by more than 5000 backers, the Glif has become a firm reality. While the Glif's creators can't promise a holiday delivery, they are taking orders for the final product. So, if you're interested in the Glif, take a look at its site for more information.
