"Lightstrap dramatically expands the usefulness of my phone's camera, and I'm constantly excited and impressed at the creative freedom it allows." Lightstrap is the first product from Brick & Pixel, a Bay Area startup helmed by father-son team Ben and Cassidy Clawson. The two worked together for more than a decade in the medical device industry, helping startups and Fortune 500 companies design, manufacture and launch new medical devices. Lightstrap was conceived by Cassidy Clawson while swiping through photos from a night out. There wasn't a single shot worth sharing with friends. The product came to him in an instant: a sleek phone case that doubled as a flash and video light. Drawing from his experience with studio photography and video production, he established requirements for a great device: 10 times brighter than the phone flash, diffuse light, adjustable color temperature and compatible with all camera apps. "I was sick of setting up shots, taking a picture, and having it not turn out," said Cassidy. "Lightstrap ensures you never miss a moment. And your friends will thank you because the ring light makes for really flattering, glamorous photos." The design is now finished and transferred to manufacturing partners. Brick & Pixel is offering Instagram users a chance to win a prototype Lightstrap. Users can enter the contest by tagging a photo #lightstrap. Winning photos will be selected by prominent Instagram users, like San Francisco designer and photographer Drew Beck (@drewbeck). Visit www.lightstrap.com for more information. SOURCE Brick & Pixel
