    Hey its cool and all, but isn’t this either a unipod or a quadrapod? — Count the nubs on the bottom of the bottle. Unless there are three feet, its definitely not a tripod.

    Interesting idea. However I imagine it requires liquid in the bottle for it to work, and it’s not exactly leak proof. One wrong move and you’ll have a water damaged camera.

    Hm you don’t necessarily need water you could use sand, marbles, and ect

    Actually, bottles (here in the US at least) have 5 nubs, making it a pentapod, I suppose.

    Another practical method of using materials found in a DIY store, which is awesome and innovative. It is not time-consuming to do and you can practically make use of other items not just plastic bottles as a tripod. Let us just hope that this will be proven durable like the real thing. The same goes to improving one’s home. As some of us prefer to seek professional help in repainting or repairing our living spaces, there are those who attempt to purchase materials in a store and do the job on their own. This should not be a problem, as long as you have an idea of what you are supposed to do so that you will not have to spend more compared to just hiring a home improvement company to assist you.
