The "Hobie' is a simple and portable tool that helps anyone with a smartphone try a hand at their very own time lapse photography.

Made by designer Mattia Ciucciarelli, this simple yet brilliant device consists of a small crossbar with bungee cords that holds any smartphone up to three inches wide inside a fully rotatable wheel. By using this design, the 'Hobie' can be held and positioned towards almost any angle a person chooses.

Adding to the tool's mobility, it can also take both static and moving time lapse recordings using a simple egg timer that is positioned underneath the device. The 'Hobie' will slowly rotate your smartphone for a moving shot and will do so without using any electrical power due to its simple mechanical design.
