Giant camera tripod lets you climb into the sky to get your shot

Tripods are great if you want to take some serious pictures or video, but most seem to top out at a less than useful height. The Tree-Pod fixes that problem, with a reach that extends almost 11 feet into the sky.

Of course once it's up that high your camera is going to be hard to operate, so the Tree-Pod doubles as a ladder which you can climb to set up your shot. Just the thing for getting above the crowds at a rock festival or sporting event.

Designed for professionals, the Tree-Pod comes with a very professional sounding price tag of $6,000. Still, I guess you could always use it for pruning your trees or washing your second floor windows when you're not out snapping pics.
