This durable smartphone tripod is the thinking person’s selfie stick

It may be too late to stop the selfie stick craze entirely, but the ARMOR-X Mini-Flexible Phone Tripod is valiantly attempting to anyway. This lightweight, ultra flexible tripod has infinite greater flexibility and functionality than a selfie stick, and actually looks like something a real photographer might use.

The ARMOR-X is completely intuitive and easy to set up anywhere: on your couch, dashboard, surfboard, or even on bumpy surfaces like cliff faces (please watch your step). Made from stainless steel, high density foam, and hardened plastic, it’s engineered for a life of adventure and is universally compatible with any smartphone up to 5.5 inches long. If you want, you can still do the selfie thing by adding a CR2032 button battery to use the Bluetooth remote shutter to snap pictures from a distance. This handy photography tool is on sale for 42% off – $19.99 – today.

For 200 years the U.S. Treasury has maintained a “conscience fund” that accepts repayments from people who have defrauded or stolen from the government. In this week’s episode of the Futility Closet podcast we’ll describe the history of the fund and some of the more memorable and puzzling contributions it’s received over the years.

We’ll also ponder Audrey Hepburn’s role in World War II and puzzle over an illness cured by climbing poles.
