Weekend Hack

I recently acquired a tripod with Bluetooth remote for my smart phone. The tripod  is only up to 10 inches tall and works very well indoors when you have something to perch it on.

However I wanted to a taller, up to 5 feet tall monopod, which I can use to video record my son's outdoor or theater concerts. I hacked it with some material that I could find in the garage:

  • L bracket as the base
  • conduit clip and knob to hold the PVC pipe

  • PVC pipe
  • velcro to firmly hold the tripod

Here is the result

Do you have any hacking ideas you would like to share?
