Smart patent: How to add a foldable grip to compact cameras.


Today I had some time to read the latest Sony patents. I didn’t find anything about the future Sony cameras. But I found a patent that shows a genius way to add a grip to super compact cameras by simply…folding it! You can see more designs here:

So was it worth to spend a Sunday afternoon for that? Nope :)  But I  always hope to find some cool stuff like I did last year when I found the translucent technology patent.
