Ok; this is just so clever. It's a pan stand for time lapse photos with your smart phone -- basically made out of a kitchen timer! The pan effect really adds a dramatic dimension to time lapse movies.

It's a Kickstarter project, btw, but the target has been doubled so it looks like a go. They have a version with a tripod mount too. Swell idea -- had to share it here. There's a video of it in action at the link below.
