Say Cheese with Podo!


Good riddance to the selfie stick era

Finally an ingenious invention to replace all annoying selfie sticks everywhere, the Podo camera. Invented by three University of Berkeley graduates that founded Podo labs, the Podo camera is the one gadget to watch out for if you are an avid selfie taker, Instagram addict or even just one who loves taking pictures and sometimes the selfie stick just does not cut it. Simply stick Podo on anywhere you fancy, snap a picture and share it with your friends, it is really that easy!

Smaller than the size of your palm, Podo is an app controlled camera with a sticky situation. It allows you to take pictures your way, as it does not restrict the picture to the length of your arm or selfie stick. Podo connects to your Smartphone via Bluetooth and controlling it is a breeze with an easy to use pre-installed app.

Its Spiderman capabilities come in the form of a special mirco-suction pad, which allows Podo to be safely attached to almost any surface for the perfect selfie again and again. If you realise that Podo is not sticking well after a couple of uses, just give it a quick rinse to get rid of the dirt, dry it and the micro-suction pad will be as good as new.

Podo has a 8MP camera for pictures, takes videos at 720p at 30fps, has an 8 LED built-in flash, battery life of 600 mAh (which is approximately two hours of video recording time), 4GB of internal storage and all this while weighing at only 51 grams. Being small and lightweight it is able to fit any pocket or purse making it extremely portable.

We don’t mean to burst your bubble, but sadly Podo is still not available for sale. Podo Labs are still raising funds on Kickstarter before Podo can be put on the production line.
