Gorillapod - Sentient Tripod

There are tripods and then there are tripods. That sounded better in my head, but let's press on. Say hello to the Gorillapod. This flexible tripod for compact cameras can go places a normal mini-tripod can't. Its three legs seem to be able to wrap around pretty much anything - even at odd angles. Should be great for actually getting yourself in some of your pictures since you can slap this onto pretty much anything. The only negative thing I can say about this is that it kind of has that flesh-eating H.R. Giger we-shouldn't-have-let-technology-mix-with-biology look that gives me the willies. Take a look at the gallery on the Gorillapod site to see more pictures of it in action.

Jay Pea, that's not why people don't believe you have a woman . . .
