I knew sooner or later, someone would come up with a smartphone necklace!  The Japan Trend Shop has the nifty Smaneck, a hands free necklace style smartphone holder for just $24 (plus shipping). It is really a tiltable grip for smartphones that can be worn around the neck.

At first glance, I snorted with amusement. But a closer look revealed its potential.  It could well be an easy way to record videos of what you are making.  So tutorial designers who share on Youtube should take note!  Other crafters and cooks could also find this helpful for demos.

I am not sure if using a timer (and not breathing for a short while so as to remain as still as possible) would work for still tutorial photographs but I might be willing to give it a go! I suspect one has to get the tilt angle right and figure out an optimal position for the working area for both photography and videography.

Other fun uses include POV (point of view) videography of your next party or family reunion and perhaps record a memorable walk in the woods and so on.
