It's too bad Snapchat can't record reactions, because your friends will freak out.

Snapchat's recording function forces you to take awkward one-handed videos, but there's a cool hack that will freak out your friends. 

You can go hands free and record yourself playing piano or jumping into a pool. The only limit is your imagination...and this $6 gadget.

What you need:


Amazon

Using the CamKix wireless bluetooth camera shutter remote, you can activate your Snapchat video from anywhere in range. The convenient and easy hands-free shutter control gives you 33 ft of space to record in. That’s like 33x more room than you had before. You know what’s even better? This device is less than 10 bucks. Buy it here for $5.99+.

Amazon

You could stop there, but a tripod is recommended for completely hands-free recording. Plus you’ll capture extremely steady footage. Now you can actually wave goodbye to your limited, one-handed snapchats. Buy it here for $32.49.

Amazon

Already have a tripod, but don’t want to buy another one specifically for your smartphone? No worries! Just order this cellphone adapter and you can start shooting wherever, whenever. Buy it here for $6.99.
