Stabil-i iPhone Case

After reading through the Stabil-i Case Kickstarter page and viewing the videos, we've gotta say, we're pretty excited about the prospects of a product that promises to make videos you shoot with your iPhone look much more fantastic by virtually eliminating the shakiness. You know what we mean. Your smartphones is typically the camera you have with you at all times, right? If you wanna capture a moment on video, it's likely that you'll bust out your phone rather than a camcorder. The Stabil-i case gets rid of the "shaky cam" look, bringing a level of smoothness to your iPhone videos. A version for the next-generation iPhone 5 is even in the works. The project is currently raising funds on Kickstarter, and has raised $23,140 out of the $80,000 goal, and there are just 4 days left. Check out the video after the break, and if it's something you think you'd like, head on over to the Kickstarter page and pre-order one.
