I always forget my tripod, so I have a collection of stupid MySpace-style shots from all over the world. These new Joby tripods collapse down nearly flat beneath your camera so you can keep them connected all the time.
Remember that tortoise a while back that got an office chair wheel for a foot? Apparently, doing the same to a GorillaPod tripod transforms it into a smooth-panning, camera system dubbed the CineSkates.
I like those GorillaPod bendy tripods as much as the next guy, but this seems like a pretty bad idea.
