This wacky looking accessory is like a three-tentacled octopus (tripus?), but it’s quite useful. It can bend and wrap around objects, and its suction cups stick to smooth surfaces. It comes with an expandable phone clip and a male 1/4-20″ camera thread. It’s also available with an optional Bluetooth remote control.
