Introducing The World’s First Stick & Shoot Camera | October 2016

odo is a Bluetooth connected, re-stickable camera that can be controlled with your smartphone. This little camera sticks and un-sticks effortlessly to surfaces like glass, bricks, masonry and wood with its reusable washable “sticky” pad. Podo syncs with your own smartphone, so that you can take a photo, video, or time-lapse and it will send to your camera library over Bluetooth. It’s the hassle-free, stranger-free way to get any shot, any angle.


Weighing in at only 50g and measuring just 5 x 5 x 2.5cm, you can take Podo just about anywhere! Packing a 5 Megapixel image sensor, 8GB of memory, a micro-USB port, LED flash, and rechargeable Li-ion battery, Podo is your very own personal photographer, and new best friend!





Podo Stick & Shoot Camera, £59.95

Selfies shouldn’t be limited to the length of your arm, with Podo you can capture a picture-perfect group shot from up to 9 metres away.  Preview the shot on your camera, take a pic, then watch as images get transferred wirelessly to your phone via Bluetooth. Stick (and re-stick) the pocket-size device to a flat surface with the micro-adhesive pad.


Originally launched on Kickstarter, Podo reached their US$50,000 goal in just 16 hours, and exceeded it by 600% in just 23 days! Following 12 months of development, Cuckooland will be first to launch Podo to the UK. It’s time to banish the awkward and embarrassing selfie stick, Podo will be available in the UK from October 2016 at
