Tripods never looked this funky, nor did they ever take the task of steading your camera so seriously. They are the Digidude portable camera tripods and you can’t be blamed if you mistake them for cute looking keychains with big personality. Until you go about unscrewing the head of one of the little men, and find yourself staring at a small bit of screw jutting out of the torso. And then you realize that this dude can do magic for your camera.
The Digidudes, designed by the open-source community called Quirky, have retractable legs that can be stretched out for height-adjustment/grip. They are absolutely low-maintenance too – you can easily string one through your keychain or camera bag, and forget all about its existence until you need to use it. They can mount most point-and-shoot cameras, flipcams, and more. There are 5 dudes to choose from – Pinky Scorsese, Snot Buster, iChomp, BoltBot, and G-bling-Money-Son. Choose your man before they are all taken, as only a limited 250 of them will be made. And oh, polygamy is encouraged and allowed. At .99 a piece.
