Capta from Texas-based Unique Design is a hybrid camera phone accessory that acts as a tripod mount, phone stand and cable management system. The patent-pending device allows you to mount any smartphone on a standard tripod with a 1/4-20 stud and pop it up at any angle for portrait or landscape oriented shots. Capta is constructed of an aluminium base plate and a proprietary adhesive pad. This proprietary pad allows Capta to hold smartphones securely at any angle for extended periods of time and leaves no residue. The design also incorporates a cable groove for cable management and a threaded hole for attachment to a tripod. In order to help fund the launch of Capta, Unique Design has set up a Kickstarter page for the project.
Unique Design Launches Capta, A Tripod Mount, Stand And Cable Management Hybrid For Smartphones
Capta is a hybrid accessory for smartphones that combines a tripod mount, phone stand and cable management into one simple, elegant and functional device.
Online PR News – 25-October-2011 –Consumers who own any smartphone today have most likely captured pictures and video, watched a movie, used the GPS, surfed the internet, etc. This means owning multiple accessories and entering a cycle of replacing old accessories when purchasing new phones since the existing accessories work specifically with the old device. The designers from Unique Design created Capta to end this cycle.
Capta is a hybrid accessory that combines a tripod mount, phone stand and cable management into one simple, elegant and functional device. Capta was designed to be the only accessory consumers would need for their iPhone, BlackBerry, Android or any other smartphone. Capta saves money, time and the frustration of always searching for new accessories.
Capta is made from airplane grade aluminum as the base/cover and a proprietary adhesive pad. This proprietary pad allows Capta to hold smartphones securely at any angle for extended periods of time and leaves no residue. The design also incorporates a cable groove for cable management and a threaded hole for attachment to camera accessories such as a tripod.
Bojan Smiljanic and Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi are the designers behind Capta who work under the moniker of Unique Design (UD). They strive to create simple functional products. According to Smiljanic, “With the form factor and technology of smartphones always changing we designed Capta to be the hybrid accessory that could keep up with those changes. For example for iPhone users regardless of generation, Capta replaces the iPhone tripod mount, iPhone stand and iPhone cable management with one simple device. Capta has exceeded our original expectations and when paired with a suction cup or tripod mount the uses increase exponentially. We are humbled by how versatile Capta truly is.”
For consumers who own an iPhone, BlackBerry, Android or any smartphone and need a tripod mount, phone stand or cable management, Capta is a must have accessory. With pledges starting at just $1 Capta is now looking for supporters on the KickStarter website to bring the product to market. Here is the link http://kck.st/pgLC98
