Mount

The FUMM offers a very interesting take on the basic goal of propping a smartphone in a useful position. Instead of being restricted to only certain devices or angles, its flexible arms and nano suction pads offer a level of versatility not often seen in similar products. Read More
Driving and talking or texting on a cell phone is illegal in most parts of the world, and with good reason. However, using a phone as an in-car music player is standard practice for many people, and the safest way to do this is with a mount that keeps your phone secured and easily accessible. Mountek's nGroove Snap caters for this need by mounting smartphones in a place that doesn't get used by many drivers these days – the CD player. Read More
A new tablet stand called the Monkey Kit takes what users expect from a stand, which is obviously holding a tablet, and adds some creativity. Instead of being limited to just one position, the Monkey Kit is adaptable. Read More
If you like to shoot point-of-view videos of your “extreme” endeavors, perhaps you sometimes get people saying “How come we never get to see you in any of these?”. Well, you can address that by using something like the BoomPro or Go360 – both devices suspend your camera from your helmet, allowing it to get a shot of you. Soon, however, you may be able to get something a bit fancier, in the form of the 3rd Person View. Read More

iPhone users looking to turn their device into an actioncam have been spoiled for choice as of late, and Qmountz by Maptaq is the latest protective case and mount package to join the fray. Read More

The Rhino Slider is a camera track designed to lend DSLR cameras some lateral movement when shooting video. Pitching to a similar market to the similarly successful Genie time-lapse controller from Syrp, it's not surprising to see the Rhino Slide has received more than double its US$20,000 Kickstarter target with 40 days left on the clock. The Rhino Slider is a deliberately simple and therefore affordable device which relies on the camera being slid either by hand, pulley or by gravity. Read More
Smartphones are so monstrously powerful these days that it's like carrying around a powerful computer in your pocket. When you start work on your desktop PC, Mac or laptop, however, all that portable power is put to sleep, resigned to being no more than a glorified answering service waiting for a call. Product designer Bill May believes that your smartphone should be made to do more for the often huge cost of the monthly charges. He's created a simple USB charging cable called the Limb.al that's stiff enough to support the weight of an iPhone or Android smartphone, but can also be bent to mount your mobile device right next to your laptop display or computer monitor. You can then keep your main screen free of virtual clutter and display your feeds and widgets on your smartphone instead. Read More
The iPhone has a fantastic GPS system, can pump out your favorite tunes, and can call a friends when you're late meeting him or her for lunch. All that functionality is great, but can be hard to use when you're doing something like say, riding a bike. The QuadLock iPhone case is an iPhone case that can be used to lock your phone into place on your bicycle, car dash, or pretty much anywhere else you can think of. The case itself is made from tough polycarbonate plastic, and can be mounted in both portrait and landscape mode depending on your personal needs. Read More
There are definitely some situations where it helps to be able to mount your smartphone, tablet or other mobile device on a flat surface, such as a dashboard, kitchen counter, or wall. If you use multiple devices, this entails buying several mounts – one designed for each device. Chicago inventor J.R. Sanchez, however, has created “one mount to rule them all,” so to speak. It’s called MobileMount, and it works with any device it can suck onto. Read More
