The Pocket Tripod — a super-portable phone accessory — launched on Kickstarter back in 2013 to a booming crowdfunding session and glowing reviews, including a Gizmodo article written by none other than Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. There were, however, shortcomings to the design: namely its Apple exclusivity and the base’s incompatibility with phone cases.

The new and improved Pocket Tripod design has been slimmed down to the width of a credit card, allowing it to slip into your wallet undisturbed. The new base comes with 15 different adapter options for various cell phone models up to 12.5mm in width. The accessory has already leapt over its $6,000 USD initial ask, so feel free to order yours — starting at $18 USD — on the company’s Kickstarter page.
