NEW GADGET ALERT: The PODO

What is a PODO, you ask?  Word on the street is that this new gadget, that retails for under $40, will be released very shortly!  The Podo is a tiny camera that sticks on any wall and allows you to take pictures (did someone say #selfie?) remotely with your smartphone!

It’s easy to use the Podo: simply stick Podo on the wall and open its app on your iPhone or Android device.  Preview how you look, and snap your pictures remotely over your bluetooth connection!  You can edit, add special effects and then share your photos on your favorite social media sites!

Podo will take an 8 megapixel image and it records HD video. The case features an LED ring to indicate status and shutter timer, and an on board accelerometer will keep you shooting straight. The battery is supposed to last a full day of use (hopefully!) and the camera charges via micro-USB.

The Podo isn’t on the market just yet, but definitely keep an eye out for its release!  You can check their website at: www.mypodo.com for updates. because for under 40 bucks, this could be fun.
