The challenge for any fun-loving youngster old enough to party in dark places is that the quality delivered by iPhone cameras just doesn't match up with the memories of the moment: Smiling faces are washed, vague or blurry, and the color tones, it seems, are never what your mind remembers. Of course, depending on the scope of low-light fun, the photo might be the only thing remembered -- just entirely after the fact. Enter Lightstrap, a new project by Brick & Pixel looking for funds on Kickstarter.

Product is stupid. First, its integration with the iPhone, while fine for video, really adds little or nothing to still photography above what the built in flash can provide. Second, if you remove it to add "artistic" lighting effects [a feature highlighted in the company's promo video], you lose the integration with iPhone, and can instead purchase a standalone, handheld side light on eBay for $30 or less [item is $90 as stated here].
