Tripods have a reputation of being bulky and heavy, which is the exact opposite of the Pocket Tripod by Geometrics Inc. By far the most lightweight and functional tripod stand ever, the Pocket Tripod is designed to slip into your wallet in the form of a card. Inspired by James Bond gadgets that have concealed functionalities, the Pocket Tripod unravels to perform its duties when needed. This iPhone stand can fold up to hold up your phone in any imaginable angle. Its secure fix holds your phone up, landscape or portrait, to take crisp and balanced photos anywhere, anytime.

Even the co-founder of Apple was impressed, commenting that it's perfect for him. "You can count me in. I never had thought that something like that could be done," he said. The Pocket Tripod's prototype was made using 3D printing technology, which is also an impressive aspect.
