Glif: Cool iPhone 4 Tripod Mount And Stand

Glif iphone tripod stand

The iPhone 4 has one of the best smartphone camera in the market today thanks to features like 720p HD video capture and HDR photography support.

Not surprisingly, many of us have now been using the iPhone 4 as our primary camera to capture pictures with family and while on travel.

However, despite its high quality photo and video capturing features, the iPhone 4 does not offer a way for users to clasp the device on a tripod stand like one can do with other cameras. 

Glif is a project that is aimed at solving this problem. Started by a hardware developer and an interaction designer from New York, Glif is a nifty accessory that offers a way to clasp the iPhone and mount it over a tripod stand. In addition to this, Glif can also serve as an independent stand to view content on the iPhone at an acceptable angle. Here is a short video from the manufacturers that offers a good preview of this really cool iPhone accessory

Like most projects that struggle to take off due to insufficient funds, Glif developers Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost too have been facing similar challenges in bringing their project to fruition. However, the project has seen a terrific reception at KickStarter.com; a website that helps developers gain pledges from interested buyers in order to develop their projects. Glif has generated close to $100,000 in pledges from users at KickStarter in less than two weeks and is in the process of being put into production soon.

Glif is tagged at a price of $20 and users who pledge this amount at Kickstarter.com will receive the iPhone accessory as soon as it is manufactured. Are you interested in purchasing a unit? Click here to pre-order Glif at KickStarter.

    The Glif is cool but you do have to take the phone out of its case in order to use it. And you need to have an iphone 4. I work for a company called PC Treasures and we offer a tripod mount that works with any phone, and you don’t have to take your phone out of its case. Also, it’s ten bucks cheaper.
