JackPod's Kickstarter was launched on March 1st.

Mobile photographers who need to take a group shot or can't seem to steady their hands look to tripods to help.  While there are plenty of options for those who want to mount their devices, few are 100% universal. A new product launched on Kickstarter last week looks to solve this problem.

JackPod fits into any smartphone's headphone jack and features a standard 1/4" 20-thread socket that can fit most camera tripods. This means that any mobile device—no matter the size, make, or operating system can be mounted with a single, super light weight accessory.

The JackPod is only .2 ounces and can fit in the palm of your hand. Costing only $10, JackPod aims to be the go-to tripod device for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry users alike.

As of this post, JackPod is still $14,000 short of its $16,500 Kickstarter goal. Interested buys can pick up the JackPod for $9 in the Kickstarter early bird special.
