Company Summary

Podo's for anyone who's been frustrated taking or sharing their pictures. It's a camera that sticks anywhere, so no one gets left out holding the camera. You can see a live preview and snap the shutter from your phone, so you always get the best angles. The Podo app makes it easy to edit and share, and can even detect and send copies to the people you're with! With Podo, pictures are up to your imagination-not the length of your arm.
