British company Gearing Co has just released its first ever tripod system – and it's aiming to revolutionize the industry. This new tripod might have a hefty price tag of £1,500 (roughly $2,087 in the US and $2,677 in Australia), but its intriguing modular design means that not only can it be used as a traditional tripod, it can also double as a pair of skiing poles.

Developed for photographers who like the taste of adventure, the Gearing tripod system weighs only 1.4kg, but can hold a sizable 40kg. Featuring a patented magnetic connection to the included ball head, the Gearing tripod system is designed to give photographers a quick way to mount and dismount cameras.
