We finally got our hands on a full retail box of the Pica-Pod thanks to Pica-Gear. The Pica-Pod is an adaptive mounting solution that’s both unique and versatile … it’s truly one of the world’s most versatile mini tripod!
We picked up our Pica-Pod retail box from Pica-Gear’s (Design Icon) office in Hong Kong, where I was greeted by Mike (left) and Billy (right) who was more than happy to show me around their office. We then had a quick 10-15 minutes of product introduction before I headed back to Funky Kit studio …
Being the first person to receive the retail box of the Pica-Pod calls for a celebration and photo taking opportunity … so why not 😉
I would like to say a big thank you to Mike and his team for their support. This product is so versatile and amazing, I will be using the Pica-Pod in ALL our feature events … that’s for sure!
Here’s a quick unboxing video to show you what you’ll get inside the retail box. Enjoy …
If you would like to get one of these before anyone else … you can support their product and become a backer on their Kickstarter page.
Hands-On Video Review
“I have to THANK Pica-Gear for coming up with such an amazing product. Seriously, I’m not joking … it’s made our life so much easier. With the Pica-Pod configured with 3 clamps, we were able to mount not one iPhone, but two iPhones … one streamed to Facebook, while the other streamed to Periscope. We also added a power bank to the 3rd clamp. In the end, we were able to film, record and live stream using our iPhones/Smartphones, without having to worry about running low on battery.”
