Gerber-Steady-Tool-2  gerber-steady-tool_50570_600x450 47268_01_3003_closed_102711
The Gerber Steady combines the utility of a multi-tool and the functionality of a tripod for compact digital cameras (up to 340 grams) and smart phones (up to 170 grams).
It comes equipped with an adjustable cell phone and screw-in camera mount and two foldable legs that serve as a tripod.

Found here. More pics after the jump.

This is the rolling shutter effect: a cell phone camera records what it sees by scanning from one side of the frame to the other (or top to bottom), and strange things happen when the scene you are shooting moves faster than the image scanner. Here’s a video explaining the effect.
