Anyone in the path of the April 8 total solar eclipse that will cover a broad swath of North America, including a stretch of the U.S. from Texas to Cleveland, will likely want to document the experience.
An Ohio film company has come out with a product designed to help them do just that.
Grafix Plastics' SafeShot has specialized film that meets eclipse-safe standards enclosed in a sturdy holder. Attach it to your smartphone and you can shoot photos or video while also watching the eclipse.
"When you are wearing eclipse glasses, you can't see anything other than the sun," the Maple Heights-based Grafix says on its website. "You have to take them off to mess with your smartphone. This creates a challenging and distracted experience."
Grafix is now selling about 1,000 SafeShots per day through local retailers and online, and Jordan told WKYC that he expects sales to increase.
