Kickstarter Project Aims to Make iPad 2 Tripod Mount and Remote Shutter Release

By

Check out this Kickstarter project — it’s a really smart clear polycarbonate iPad 2 case (called the iLoqk — hey, we’ve heard worse) that comes with a removable clamp that doubles as a tripod mount, which is yours for a pledge of $40. An extra $20 will bag you the XShot, an extending arm that attaches to the tripod mount and comes with a wireless shutter release for the iPad’s camera. It’s a pretty nifty idea, and seems like it’d helpful in all sorts of situations.

If that’s not enough, another $20 ( for $80 total) adds a tripod to the bundle. Of course, the project’ll have to be fully funded to the tune of $35K before it even gets off the ground. Sit through the almost-feature-length promo video for a better idea of how the whole package works.
