πŸ’¬ OK so I want to explain why we put this together: A few months ago, around 1am, I was lying in my bed, staring at my phone (probably browsing a collection of the finest cat gifs 🐈) - when I saw a notification that @rrhoover was livestreaming an unboxing of recent packages he’d received to his address on Facebook Live. πŸ“Ί As any true fan of The Hoov would, I eagerly hopped on the livestream in anticipation of watching the unboxing of an array of interesting and wonderful products that Ryan gets sent in the mail. πŸ“¦ I made myself a cup of tea β˜•οΈ, settled it on my nightstand, adjusted my pillow and opened the stream. It was set up to be a really wonderful evening. 😌 However, things very quickly took a shocking turn. 😱 After a few parcels and letters were opened βœ‰οΈ it soon became clear that the livestream was almost impossible to do with one hand βœ‹πŸ˜­ The most turbulent point of the evening was when Ryan πŸ‘¦πŸΌ, after receiving a Snapcode T-Shirt πŸ‘» in the mail from @lukemiller - tried to open a very well packaged item with one hand with great difficulty. If my memory serves me correctly, in trying to open this package there were feet πŸ‘£, elbows πŸ’ͺ and teeth πŸ‘„involved as the parcel was ripped and torn open in a frenzy of cosmic startup irony. How could we live in a world of so much incredible tech and yet still be so limited? πŸ˜” I then remembered that in the last 6 months more and more of our users had been using their remotes exclusively for Snapchat (at CamKix we’ve been making and selling Bluetooth remotes for two years). So in part thanks to our users, and in part thanks to this livestream, the connection between the need for hands-free recording and Snapchat was born. πŸ™ŒπŸ‘» We believe Snapchat is one of THE best platforms out there at the moment, and that people should be able to dance, play guitar, juggle, paint, and unbox stuff without having to hold their phone at all times with one finger pressed to the screen. So we’ve bundled together an inexpensive kit that includes an adjustable tripod and one of our remotes so you can Snapchat hands-free from now on! Thank you to @nivo0o0for hunting us! πŸ‘‹ Please feel free to ask any questions!

Sarah, we love you too! So we got our cat mailman to put on her little backpack and then we put the kit inside the backpack and now she's on her way to your place with your order! πŸˆπŸŽ’ Be patient, it may take her a couple days. Thanks from all of us! πŸ’•

@suparchie I actually expect a cat at my door. I will snuggle her, feed her and send her back to you.
