Swiss Army knives and similar multi-tools from other companies have been the forefathers of convergence. Manufacturers have been cramming endless attachments in one small package but never have we come across one that also could double as a camera tripod. The Gerber Steady Tool has 12 components, one of which is a camera/cellphone mount. It looks like cameras will thread right onto a standard camera mount while smartphones can be attached to a suction-cup. And when it’s not being used as a tripod, the Steady Tool also has a fine edge blade, a serrated blade, Micro Flat, Square Cross & Medium Flat screwdrivers, a bottle opener, needlenose pliers, and wire cutters. It all comes in a rugged looking 5.8 oz. package and costs only $64. Available now.
