How to stick your camera to a tree

The "Monster Pod" claims to attach to pretty much anything.

We've seen some innovative (weird) alternatives to the traditional tripod, ranging from sandbags and telescoping poles to bendable serpants. But the "Monster Pod" has got to be one of the strangest.

The camera attaches to its "patented viscoelastic polymer base," according to 7Gadgets, which in turn will affix to a "tree, pole, fence, rock, wall--almost anything." Somehow, we can't see trusting this to hold a $25,000 Hasselblad, but that's just us. On the other hand, it's probably safer than asking a stranger to take your picture in some parts of New York City.
