There are some days that I worry about the spelling ability of our society. The word gimbal, for instance, came into my lexicon when I first watched Apollo 13 but now Youbiq is marketing something called … a Gymbl. Which seems a few letters off, to me, but take a look.
Who should buy this? Well, if you have an iPhone*, shoot handheld video (the grip setting is much easier to hold steady) or do a lot of panoramas, this be worth tossing in your bag.

I’d love to feature some Android-centric widgets, but with so many different phones running the platform, there’s no way to design a physical tool for all of them.
