Larry Jordan: So what we've got is a flexible tripod where you can bend the legs any way you want, looks like a bunch of little kids play toys, and then above it is a thing that's about 9 inches high, it looks like a camera grip, and he's got a cell phone attached to it with a pressure fit. So it can be any size cell phone or even can an iPad fit?

Josh Apter: iPad mini will fit.

LJ: iPad mini will fit. So he can now adjust this to be whatever he wants and, because it's a tripod. He can unscrew it and put it on something different. So, basically, it's a holder for a mobile device that can take any size, any reasonable size, mobile device and put it on top of a flexible tripod or a standard tripod.

JA: Yeah, and it gives you three integrated cold shoe mounts, so if you want to accessorize it with like two radio mics and a light, you don't have to go and buy some outside accessory. We really said,  "How can we take everything we liked about what we'd seen and incorporate it into a product and really build a better mousetrap here?"
