There’s no denying the fact that stop-motion animations are awesome. It doesn’t matter if you’re working with the stick figure on the pack of Post-Its or something more cinematic, they’re fun to create and even more fun to watch. If you’re looking to jump start a career in stop-motion movies, or just looking to have some fun, the new Frameographer iPhone App is a great use of three hard-earned dollars. Set your scene. Take a picture. Move something a little. Take a picture. Lather, rinse, repeat until the desired effect is achieved. When you’re done taking pictures (with the front or back camera), mess with the fps or just export it to the Camera Roll in 720p HD quality. Then you just upload it to your favorite video sharing service and wait for the phone to ring with job offers.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
