There are only a few iPhone related developments on KickStarter that have received ample backing and have gone on to be a success on their own. MaxStone, a small device that recently made way on the platform, looks promising as it contains most high-end photography features in a small Bluetooth enabled device.
It attaches to the iPhone at front of the IR sensor and covers the shutter button of the camera in use, and connects via Bluetooth. Users can make use of MaxStone apps trigger camera shutter of the handset remotely, either instantly, or through a time interval. They can also be used for time-lapse images going up to a year, and the good thing is that the device is compatible with most camera models and brands. Additionally, it can also handle video recording triggers on some models.
There device also features a Bluetooth proximity sensor, and it can be used to different location points to receive notifications/alerts when the user is away from the camera or the phone. And it can also be used to locate the phone through the MaxStone button. Also, the user would be able to use it as a remote shutter for the iPhone camera.
The device is the mastermind of a New York based team that goes by the name MaxMax Inc. which is seeking $50,000 in funds, with 58 days left in the KickStarter campaign (credit breanna). They have currently raised $6,500 and if the goal is met as planned, MaxStone is going to start shipping in March next year.
