'Hobie' is an inexpensive smartphone tool that helps users stabilize videos. While many smartphones are equipped with a time-lapse feature, it is difficult to film this kind of footage by hand. This ring-shaped tripod makes it easier for users to stabilize their time-dependent videos.

The device was created by 'Overlab' and was originally inspired by a mechanical rotating kitchen timer. The device works by rotating automatically over a particular period of time. The tripod helps to stabilize videos and replicate the same wide field of view seen in professional time-lapse footage. The timer inside the device is equipped with a mechanical engine, meaning that a user does not need to recharge the battery each time.

The tripod is the perfect solution for amateur photographers who are interested in experimenting with time-lapse videos.
