Owing to its small size, users can carry the Spinpod anywhere they go. So, whether you’re going camping, hiking or for another beach party, simply setup the phone or camera on the Spinpod (it can also be used on a tripod) and take the best panoramic shoots ever or make the most gripping time lapse video possible. Spinpod has a timer, so you can even click self panoramas too. Spinpod has an independent rotation feature – it rotates (at defined time intervals set by the user) in a perfect speed very close to the axis of the phone, so you get flawless photos and videos.

When not being used as a stand to take pictures or make videos, the Spinpod can also be used as a dock or passive sound amplifier for your iPhone or Android phones.
