Wearable Smartphone Stand

September 20, 2011

So I've got friends that live far away and I imagine you do to. Lucky for us, it's just getting easier and easier to stay in touch with them. To speak with my brother, I press the button on my earphones and say "Call Abe". That's amazing. We're lucky.


Thanks to it's front facing camera, I'm now completely obsessed with Facetime and Skype. The ability to video chat with my friends and family who live abroad is valuable. I also use it for work all the time while traveling.

 I didn't want to have to hold my phone when doing FaceTime. The solution was a bracelet that holds my phone so that I don't have to. Since it's wearable, I always have it with me.
I’ve been testing it out the last month or so and i love it. It’s allowed me to have meals with people that live far away, jam a little guitar with my one year old nephew and watch iPhone movies while eating popcorn. I even dusted off my old ThinkOutside keyboard and have been using it with my iPhone to respond to emails from a cafe in the morning. I love not carrying around my laptop.

I wanted it to work with as many phones as possible and I think it’s worked out well. I’ve stopped into a couple of cell phone stores and it’s worked with every smartphone I tried, including……


iPhone 4S, iPhone 5SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, Samsung Galaxy SII, HTC Sensation, HTC Incredible, HTC Desire, Motorola XT860, Motorola 4G, LG Optimus Quantum

Personally, I can’t wait to trade up to a Google phone. If anyone at Google wants to trade me a Samsung Galaxy S2 for a bunch of these bracelets, let me know. I’m in. So, I hope this cuff will help people get into video chatting a little bit more. It’s free and it’s awesome.

Enjoy the hands free video chat!

Bike touring: Where to sleep and how to find it

April 12, 2019

Bike touring is different than other types of travelling in that you don't really know how far you're going to get every day. This can make planning accommodations difficult and stressful, but it doesn't need to be.

In this post, I share some of the techniques I use to find accommodation on the fly so you can enjoy the ride and not stress about where to rest your head that night.
