    CES: Olloclip

    Ciara O'Brien

    Most people at this point have a phone with a camera in it. And you probably find yourself using it a lot more than your regular point and shoot camera, because they’re just so much more convenient.

    But if you could make it better, you would, right?

    The Olloclip is a clip-on lens designed for the iPhone that combines three lenses into one: fisheye, wide angle and macro. It flips around, pieces screw together…it’s all a bit clever.

    One drawback is that it’s made to fit specific models, so you can’t swap one between an iPhone 4 and a 5, nor can you use with a case on it.

    That last but is something the company is already looking at; on the way is a case that has a flip out piece so you can attach the camera lens and acts as a shutter button for you.
