[Video Link] Christine Reilly and Michael Boczon designed this motorized handheld stabilizer for GoPro, called the STABiLGO. It looks good!
At just 1.5lbs, with a GoPro attached, the design minimizes weight making it ideal for action cinematography.

The ARMOR-X Mini Flexible Phone Tripod is a smartphone tripod that is designed with flexible legs to rest on virtually any type of surface. Other tripods have proved useless unless I conveniently have a flat surface in front of me, which is why this particular tripod was appealing enough to try out. The ARMOR-X is compact and easy […]
