Podo Blows Past Goal on Kickstarter, Promises to Replace Your Clunky Selfie Stick

With only a few hours left in its campaign, Podo has more than met its funding goal. The affordable hands-free selfie camera has raised over $700,000, leagues ahead of its $50,000 goal.

For $49, Podo shoots photos, videos, and time lapse. It sticks to virtually any services and then snaps content remotely. The device promises to replace your tacky, cumbersome selfie-stick for good.

Last year, Podo Labs raised more than $400,000 from 3,600 backers to fund its original version. The San Francisco company has over 8,500 backers for this next-gen model.

It’s not too late to buy one.
