MonsterPod - Is it a hoax?

My friend pointed out a cool new product to me, the MonsterPod. The web site claims that the MonsterPod is "the most incredible digital camera tripod on planet Earth". It can stick to trees, ceiling, chair, rail, hand, door, and pipe. It stick to 1000 objects at any angle, even upside-down. It's not bean bag, suction cup, nor glue.

Sounds amazing. In fact, a little too amazing with little solid information. Almost feels like a hoax. What do you guys think? Is it a hoax?

Not a Hoax, feel free to ask any of the thousands of people who say it in action at this years PMA, including the many journalists who have wrote about it.

ORLANDO, FLORIDA - March 2, 2006 - PMA 2006 Overview
While there were plenty of mega cameras, mega booths, and mega pixels at the PMA 2 week, there was only one mega release — MonsterPod ™. What the MonsterPod™ boys lacked in flash and glitter, they made up in pure brilliance.
At first the crowd was skeptical, but as word began travel, the MonsterPod ™ boys were rock’n and roll’n and stick’n their MonsterPod™ to nearly everything in their booth and their neighbors booths too.
Crowds gathered for hours around booth 1854, hidden way back deep in the barrio, far from the bright lights and pretty girls (they call them reps), to see the father and son team stick their invention to golf clubs, snow skis, drift wood, squirrel cages, Styrofoam balls, wine bottles and even a swinging tennis racket! The crowds when wild, as the MonsterPod ™ boys launched their product into stardom – or, so it was seeming.
Basically MonsterPod ™ is a tripod head mount with a viscoelastic silicone polymer goo that will mold to practically any surface.
What this means to shutterbugs around the world, is that whether you’re hiking in the woods, skiing down the slopes, rocking climbing the Grand Canyon, traveling up the Eiffel Tower or parting with friends at home, you can simply screw this baby into your compact digital camera and press it to any surface at any angle and it will stick, creating an instant tripod.
And, it really sticks! So good, in fact, the MonsterPod ™ was stuck over 3,000+ times in 4 days at PMA 2006 – and, is still stick’n after take’n all that lick’n…
MonsterPod™ the most incredible digital camera tripod on planet earth.

Hi. I did see the MonsterPod, too. As amazing as it may sound, it didn't look like a hoax. It really was sticking to a grand number of objects, without showing sign of tricks of any kind. So I will give it a try when it comes out.
