A Specially Redesigned Selfie-Stick

Selfie sticks were a popular invention that quickly sold worldwide to those who needed an extra hand in taking pictures of themselves with friends and family. Since then, a number of different variations and redesigns of the selfie stick have been made in order to further improve the product. Our Austin Product Design Agency believes that the Lumi Elfi is no exception. The Lumi Elfi is more than just a selfie stick, it is designed to also have the ability to pan horizontally and vertically, easily switch between your front and back camera, capture panoramas and time-lapses, and can face-track subjects as they move! Therefore not only can you hold your phone farther away, but you can upgrade your camera skills and get better shots of you and your friends.

The Selfie Stick With a Tri-Pod Feature!

Our Austin Product Design Agency can acknowledge that with every design, whether successful or not, comes the opportunity to further improve and progress the design. One issue that a lot of people had with the traditional selfie stick is that they still struggled with angling the bar at a flattering angle, and tired arms. The Selfie Pro is an innovative solution and improvement to the traditional selfies stick by not only doing what the regular selfie stick does but also features a tripod that the user can easily set up and take time photographs with friends and family no matter where they are.

Capture the Best Lighting for Your Selfies

One of the greatest and most impactful features of the multi-use smartphone is the ability for people to rely on their phones as their main camera. However, no matter how high-tech a phone becomes, nothing ruins good pictures than bad lighting. The BIGSOFTI is a portable soft light that easily attaches to the top of your smartphone. The purpose and design of the BIGSPOFTI are to provide better and high quality diffused lighting in order to take better photos and videos on your handheld device. The BIGSOFTI is compatible with all phones as it strategically was designed to use a universal clip in order to grip on and attach to any smartphone. Our Austin Product Design Agency loves this product as the design is also lightweight, for easy carry, portable so you can take it anywhere.

A Selfie Product That Always Stays in Focus

Another issue our Austin Product Design Agency found that is common with those who take selfies or use selfie sticks, is the physical strain that it puts on your hand to hold out your phone for prolonged periods of time. GravGrip is an innovative and cost-effective solution to this problem! The GravGrip uses a hydraulic axis that helps cancel your hand’s movements to perfectly stabilize your phone in order to take clear and focused images and videos. Not only is the GravGrip portable, but also it is compatible with phones and action cameras. You also have the option to control the speed of stabilization so you can choose for it to stay in place or gently pan and rotate with movements.
