Go, go, gadget arm

The Quik-Pod helps photographers taking self-portraits by extending their reach.

Have you ever wanted to feel like Inspector Gadget, but actually growing mechanical appendages wasn't a viable option?

The Quik-Pod (which despite its name, mercifully has nothing to do with digital audio) is an extendable handheld tripod. It screws in to the tripod hole of a camera and when you click a button, it extends your reach 18.5 inches.

This could be cool. It might mean my self-portraits are no longer blocked by my arm, but I can get over that pretty quickly. The Quik-Pod is $24.95, and collapses to 7.5 inches in your pocket.

Of course, declaring, "Go, go, gadget arm" before using it is entirely optional.
