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.

It also features a 3.5-inch ultra-high resolution touchscreen display, shoots at up to 10.1 megapixels, and includes 4GB of internal memory. It also includes the Picture Motion Browser software package, but seriously, who’s gonna use that? The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T700 retails for $399.99, but on Amazon we were able to find substantial discounts, depending on which color you were interested in:
- Grey DSC-T700 for $339.99
- Pink DSC-T700 for $366.47
- Silver DSC-T700 for $375.64

There’s also a gold version, but we didn’t include that one since there was no discount available on it. Definitely a good gift for the woman in your life.
