Despite having a rather unfortunate name, the Glif is actually a really good product idea. It’s a tiny mount which lets you put your iPhone 4 on a tripod with ease.
Designed by Thomas Gerhardt and Dan Provost, this pint-sized piece of rubberized plastic mounts onto any tripod or camera mount with a standard 1/4″-20 thread. And for those times when you’re not in photo-taking mode, the compact contraption turns into a nifty stand so you can view images or videos on your iPhone. When not in use, it converts into an antenna guard, so you can keep it on your iPhone at all times.
Proving that the Internet truly is revolutionizing product development, the $20 device started out as a Kickstarter project, with its makers sights set on generating $10,000 to get their project funded. Amazingly, they’ve raised over $137,000 to date, and will start shipping the Glif in about 2 or 3 weeks. You can pre-order one here.
