Joby makes the famous and ultra-bendy GorillaPod tripod, which is designed to wrap around a tree branch, perch on uneven ground, or grip the handlebars of a parked bike. Now, the company has perfected a case-compatible mount that grips onto any Android phone or iPhone and attaches to any tripod.

WEIGHT: 2.4 ounces.
COMPATIBLE WITH: All Android and Apple phones.
PRICE: $20, mount only; $30, mount and tripod.
