One of the more ingenious accessories displayed at the CES is the compact, lightweight, portable Gorillapod. This tripod, made by Joby, has 360º flexible joints so that you can bend or wrap it around a tree and grippable rings and feet, so that it will stay still while you are waiting for your camera’s timer to go off. At a weight of 1.6 oz and a size of 5.9 x 1.2 x 1.2-inches, it will support any point-and-shoot compact camera that weighs up to about 9.7 oz. Available at Joby for only $21.95, we’re thinking that maybe they should have named this tripod a Monkeypod, because its big brother SLR is also available at $39.95 and will hold up a 1.75 lb. video camera.
