We talk with Mike Hullet of OmegaSatter, the company that makes the MonsterPod. The MonsterPod is a tripod without legs, great for situations where you don’t have a stable place for a tripod. It can be attached to just about any surface. It has a visco-elastic, putty-like polymet base, so you can mount it to things like trees, rocks, brick, or anything you can find. Then you connect your camera to it, and you can take your image in just about any situation. You can pick one up for $34.99 USD.
Let’s admit it - we have all had to stop some stranger to ask them to take a photo of us and our friends because we weren’t in the mood to set up a tripod with self-timer. When the camera was returned smelling of hot dogs and cheap perfume, we were livid. Am I right? Understanding that, Wayne Fromm came up with the Quik Pod. Looks good in theory, but that sales pitch felt like it was straight out of a Simpsons episode. Still, we can’t argue with the practicality of the thing. Check it out in this episode.
