Ever wanted to make your family and friends even more sick when watching your badass shaky riding footage? Now you can, by jamming your GoPro/Virb/Contour/whatever onto your hub shell so you can get a continuously rolling shot as you ride along on the…

Wait…hold on…we’re going to need a bucket…

But seriously, this is actually quite a neat product. Recently launched on Kickstarter, GekkoGum has successfully reached its funding target, with 17 days to go at the time of writing. Over 300 backers have come on board to help bring the project to reality, though there’s still time if you want to get yourself an earlybird discount.

So basically, GekkoGum is like a big sticky ball of play-dough, which you can use to mount your camera or smartphone onto pretty much anything. It won’t stick to silicone, but it looks like it’ll stick to most surfaces. It’s made from a non-hazardous rubber compound that has a sticky property to it that according to GekkoGum, won’t wear off over time. They reckon it’ll hold an object up to 200 grams, and you can wash it to clean off any dirt or mud that might stick onto it.
