Find out why this mount was a massive Kickstarter hit.

Are you tired of springing for headshots or asking strangers to take your photo at travel spots? Do you just want your Instagram to look a little cooler? No matter what your selfie goals are, the Picbot Face Tracking Automated Smartphone Mount can take you there.

The Picbot smartphone mount takes the Face ID technology already on your smartphone further. With built-in facial tracking software, it allows for the perfect exposure, filter, panorama shots, and more (it also swivels a full 360 degrees.) There is also an automated countdown timer that initiates a photo when you’re at your stillest, so there’s no need to magically guess how long it’ll take to pose.

The Picbot smartphone mount comes with a 1/4″ thread standard mount that works with almost all tripods and stands, so there’s no more guessing on that front either. Plus, the controller lets you adjust everything hands-free.

Take the most struggle free, effortless selfies you’ve ever taken. Get the Picbot Face Tracking Automated Smartphone Mount here for $112.99 from the Daily Dot store, a $200 dollar value.
