Mr Tappy: a filming rig for mobile and tablet usability testing

My good friend Nick Bowmast has created Mr Tappy, a rather well engineered kit for mounting cameras onto mobile devices and tablets, for the purpose of filming the screens for usability testing.

The rig costs $289.00, which isn’t expensive when you consider it’s made from aircraft grade aluminium with stainless steel nuts. This thing is a labour of love. No more faffing around with blu-tack, sticky-tape or Meccano. It’s available for order now, though I expect the first batch will sell out pretty quickly.
