If you find holding your iPhone while taking video a little tricky and awkward for long periods. This new Slingshot stabiliser might be worth more investigation.The Slingshot has been designed by Charles Waugh to help assist iPhone users whilst recording video footage.
Its constructed from injection moulded acetal resin, trade name: Delrin. Which is the same plastic used to create industrial gears and other tough products and is able to twist and bends, without breaking.
Distatified with the available iPhone stabilisers on the market Waugh thought he would design a solution himself and created the Slingshot which is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking for funding.
“The cradle holds any smartphone nice and tight, yet gently – even if it has a case on it. Why? because it has over-molded rubber pads on the tip of each ‘wing’. That’s just like on your toothbrush handle where there’s a rubber area molded over the plastic body. You get the toughness of plastic plus the grippiness of rubber. “
