This guitar magnet is a wonderful invention that makes it easier than ever for guitarists to record video of their playing. If you've ever attempted to record video of yourself playing an instrument, you'll know it's very difficult to position your webcam or smartphone camera well to capture the full range of your playing. The magnet takes care of this with ease -- mounted to your guitar, it holds your smartphone while it records video.
The smartphone's lens can be directed at the picking hard or up on the neck to capture the fretting hand -- with the GoPro mount, you can record both views at once.
The developers of the guitar magnet are operating a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to bring it to production. A pledge of $30 gets you a single magnet mount, with an additional $20 required to land the GoPro mount as well.
