A holder and a handle that will convert your smartphones into professional photo and filming gear

SHOULDERPOD is a new brand for the smartphone photographers and filmmakers. We are a design studio from Barcelona and we love taking pictures and filming with our smartphones, but we couldn’t figure out how to hold them correctly, so we designed MOBBO and HANDDO

CROWDFUNDING is a new concept for funding creative ideas and INDIEGOGO is one of the two biggest crowdfunding platforms in the world. We are TAMBAKUNDA, a design studio from Barcelona and our funding goal is 45.000€ for manufacturing the injection moulds and the toolings of MOBBO and HANDDO. We can’t do it alone and that’s why we need your help in our crowdfunding campaign. If enough people “pre-order” our products we can make them possible. We need to meet our funding goal before August 4. If we do so, we will then receive the money, will manufacture the MOBBOs and HANDDOs and will ship them to you by the end of November. In the meanwhile, Indiegogo will retain all the funds awaiting the result.


If you place a pre-order and we don’t meet our goal, don’t worry, Indiegogo will refund you the total ammount of your contribution, we will not receive a cent and the project will not be done. Thanks for your help and please spread the word!
