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.
