I saw this on another blog last night and immediately thought of posting this here. When I searched for it by name to make sure that I wasn't going to make a duplicate thread there was already one in the "Gear" forum. Though since this can almost be viewed as a niche piece of photography gear I figured that I would post about it here as well. Below is a link to the Kickstarter page where you can view the item. Long story short it takes the treking poles most of us carry anyway and converts them into a stable tripod.
As a disclaimer I have no affiliation with this product, my motivation is that I just really want one myself and don't really have a way to acquire one unless the project gets funded. I've already pledged for a whole enchilada myself.
