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……

Compatibility:

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!

How to reroute shifter cables to accommodate an Ortlieb Handlebar Bag

Just a quick hack here that i use to get my routing cables out of the way. The main problem here is that entry level index shifters usually have cables right where you'd want to be putting your handlebar bag. If you jam your bag there, it'll be constantly stressing the cables and will probably result in breaking a cable as some point.

This hack, lets you get the cables out of the way and keep them protected without having to upgrade your shifters.
