So I take a lot of video of myself for athletics (and to remember my own LIFE) and it's not always convenient bringing a tripod to the pool or track or the gym, because it's not very discreet and you end up being "that guy with a tripod". It's also not very convenient asking a stranger to film you every 3 minutes or even your friend (if you have those). So I decided to solve all that with a super cool, super versatile phone mount that can stand on it's own and be clamped to anything that fits within the vice (transformers style baby lets gooo).
Taking inspiration from a C-Clamp, an updated main body now doubles as a vice that allows the user to mount their phone to most poles and rectangular beams.
Tension is applied via rubber bands (2-3 small orthodontic rubber bands per hook work great).
Added hooks to lash or hang the housing to virtually anything.
Multiple screw-attachments on the main body to place the ball-mount on for various camera angles.
