Kickstarter: The ANYCASE iPhone Tripod Adapter also fits most SmartPhones

It’s been a slow photo app week, but there’s lots of exciting things happening hardware-wise in iPhoneography.

I get to see a lot of Kickstarter projects for iPhone accessories. Here’s another cool one that’s working towards meeting its funding goal. You can help and get a pretty bitchin’ iPhone accessory as well.

The ANYCASE tripod adapter is a sturdy, metal accessory for any smartphone, not just an iPhone 4 or 4S. One of the ANYCASE’s best features is that it allows you to use mount your phone with or without a case.

A naked iPhone 4 or 4S — that is, a device without a protective case — is one of the most beautiful consumer devices available. Unfortunately, due to the design of the case, the flush-mounted rear lens cover is easily prone to scratches if it’s not recessed or protected. I’m a huge proponent of using a case for the iPhone 4/4S.

The popular Glif tripod adapter is a sweet device. It’s small, portable and easy to use, but it only works on a naked iPhone 4/4S. The ANYCASE is not much bigger than the Glif, but offers several advantages.

The ANYCASE tripod adapter “fits ANY iPhone, with ANY case, even the iPhone5, probably the iPhone6.” It’s precision CNC machined in California out of aircraft-grade 6061 Aluminum. Three 3M rubber pads that have a hi-tech super-grip microdot pattern protect your phone preventing the adapter from scratching your device and keep it from slipping in any direction.

You can get an ANYCASE tripod adapter at the $25 pledge level — pretty reasonable.

There’s more information on the ANYCASE website or you can see a video of the prototype in action on the ANYCASE Kickstarter page. The funding deadline is currently Friday, July 6, 2012.

    I’m really interested in this, but wondering if the mini will work with an olloclip. Otherwise, it’s a fantastic idea! If it works with an olloclip, I’ll back it!

    I forgot to paypal message you the color I was hoping for. I wanted the Yellow just like in the photos but i'd take any color as longs as I can have this product. awesome product regardless. Colors is the way to go though! makes competitors look like crap and appear to a wider audience. My e-mail is attached to my comments. Its the same as paypal payment.
