Urban camera holder
A small and simple phone/camera holder attached to poles or any other suitable structure


There are many places, when you wish to make a photo with your loved ones, but you'd like to be in the picture too. In these cases carring a tripod is always a pain and not practical at all. Finding somebody and asking to make a picture is not easy. If you find somebody, than you can't really relax in front of him and most of the time the picture will come out blurry or the wrong button will be pressed etc...
With this small and simple camera holder (approx. 18 cm x 10cm) the problem is resolved. People could put their phones, compact cameras of even bigger DSLR on these holders, set the cameras to self-timers, than go in front of camera.
The camera holders could be attached mostly on poles around parks, nice spots, close to river, tourist centers, malls, terraces and clubs, but they could be mounted on walls as well. The height would be around 1.65 cm so every adult could reach it. The holder has spring system in two places: one in the "hand" of the, so when there is no camera, the structure could retract and protect itself from accidental damaging and a double spring on the holders. Of course the whole system needs more indepth development.
