If you are one of the people who get annoyed when you see others using selfie sticks, you will have something new to be annoyed about soon. The Edelkrone Povie is a smartphone holder meant to allow the user to record point of view videos and still have their hands available
It might be the perfect thing for geeky unboxing videos or recording yourself cooking, but it still looks rather silly.
Povie is a necklace-style smartphone mount made from ABS and silicone injection molded parts. Your smartphone is held onto the Povie with a powerful magnet, which can hold devices up to about a half pound.
The section that the smartphone sticks to is angle adjustable so you can fine-tune your video, and since the screen faces outward, someone else can monitor what you’re capturing. That said, you are limited the the video resolution of your front-facing camera, which is often lower than the main camera on back.
The biggest downside to the Povie is that you look pretty ridiculous with your smartphone around your neck. You can order Povie now for $49.99(USD).
