The Heirloom has to be one of the weirder Kickstarter initiatives that we’ve seen in a while. It’s looking to replace a table top tripod, and is also looking to balance your camera on top of its super soft and plushy self. Essentially, it’s a glorified beanbag that’s designed to morph and conform to its surroundings while balancing a camera on top of it. But it’s not only being aimed at mirrorless and point and shoot camera folks–they’re also pitching it to mobile shooters.
To be honest though, I can’t exactly see myself carrying around a bean bag that looks like a tomato just for the purpose of stability. But the idea itself is pretty novel.
The Kickstarter video is after the jump; and we still think it’s a pretty cute idea.
