Everyone..Meet MonsterPod, a tripod without legs which will stick to 1,000 objects and counting. It’s really good for situations where you don’t have a stable place for a tripod.
The secret is in its patent pending “viscoelastic morphing polymer base” molds, grips and sticks to metal, wood, plastic, veneer, marble, Formica, cement, block, steel, brick, glass, tile, enamel, sheet rock, rocks and trees. The MonsterPod will support nearly all compact digital cameras. Nearly 90% of all compact digital cameras manufactured today weigh less than 10 oz. (300 grams) and can be supported.
