I love Kickstarter projects, especially those that are well thought of and well made. Elephant Steady, a very small stabilizer for iPhone, might be one of them that fits the criteria. It cleverly uses the sensors of the iPhone to control its motor to stabilize it.
If you are worried about the project, maybe this information will help. The Project Leader of this Elephant Steady is Hideaki Seike, the person behind Gizmon products.
Here is the video introduction of Elephant Steady.
According to them, this gadget is iPhone 6 ready. The only disappointment for me is that the Elephant Steady can only be delivered next year February. But then, if it can deliver accurately on time, it will still be good.
