The Pocket Tripod is an interesting new stand and tripod for iPhone users. Instead of being a bulky device that is hard to carry around, this one is able to fold up completely flat and fit inside of a wallet. Not only can it fold up into a tiny package, it can articulate into all kinds of positions, so it offers a lot of flexibility.
The tiny stand is only 2.3 mm thick, which makes it about the same depth of two standard credit cards stacked on top of each other. This means that it should fit easily inside of any wallet, so users can have it with them at all times.
As far as positioning goes, it can hold the iPhone in landscape and portrait mode. It can hold it at all different angles, so however a user wants to look at their screen, this tiny stand can accommodate. The piece that actually holds the iPhone in place is where the rotation occurs, and it can be moved to almost any conceivable position.
Geometrical Inc. is seeking funding for its Pocket Tripod on Kickstarter. Its funding phase has just begun, and it is currently at almost US$2,000 of its $45,000 goal. The minimum pledge required to grab a stand is $25.
