Once a month we’re going to choose and back an Apple / Cool / Looks like it could be fun piece of tech. This month were looking at the HiLO Lense, A unique camera accessory for iPad & iPhone. HiLO Lens is a right angle lens for the iPad and iPhone.
The project was launched on Kickstarter two weeks ago and has already raised over 70% of the goal. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/marknzed/hilo-lens-for-iphone-and-ipad
Many people are excited by how useful the HiLO Lens could be for taking photos & video with the iPad. 20% of the backers are selecting the iPad compatible reward on Kickstarter. It is uncomfortable to hold the iPad at arm’s length as a camera and people do look rather ridiculous when they try. But with HiLO Lens the iPad can be held comfortably at waist level while taking video or photos toward the horizon.
The ability to take very low level shots comfortably will be greatly appreciated by parents and pet owners. Placing the iPad or iPhone at the edge of a flat surface with the HiLO Lens attached provides a tripod like function.
