A new Kickstarter idea features a Bluetooth device that allows users to control virtually any DSLR camera without being behind the camera. MaxStone turns your iPhone into a wireless remote control for DSLR cameras. You can choose between 5 different interval shutter modes (from 5 second shutter to 10 second shutter). MaxStone is powered by a simple watch battery, and attaches to cameras via a simple loop strap. It is placed in front of the cameras IR sensor in order to cover the main shutter and triggers the camera shutter wirelessly through Bluetooth.
MaxStone uses Bluetooth 4.0 and Infrared technology to connect to your iPhone, allowing you to connect to many models and avoid the hassle of non-WiFi zones. MaxStone inventors Will E and Lia Zhang are based out of New York, and are seeking $50,000 with hopes of shipping the MaxStone in March 2014.

The MaxStone also supports many different camera brands, through an app requiring no cables:
