Trying to figure out where to put one’s mobile phone while driving and using the GPS app might be one of the more looming questions of the 21st century. Squido is a unique Swedish gadget that has a suction cup on one side and a set of four thin prongs on the other. Drivers can then stick the suction cup on the back of the phone and hook the prongs on the other side into their vehicle’s vents. The nice thing about this is that a person’s view is not obstructed as with other car phone holders that have a suction cup that sticks to the windshield. While a small portion of heat or air conditioning may be blocked when Squido is being used, it does seem that it would be fairly universal with most iPhones and car vents. Other options for backers seeking a mobile phone mount include Ultima S, EverDock Go, and Neutron S. This campaign seeks to raise kr60,000 SEK ($8130.08 USD) by November 20, 2014. For kr89 SEK ($12.04 USD) backers get one with an expected delivery of December 2014.
In this high tech world that often leaves people wondering how to mount their gadgets and other stuff, the whole focus of Octopush seems to be rediscovering the power of simple suction. When its multiple suction cups come together, they can offer a person such options as wall mounts for gadgets, liquid soap, and toothpaste; or a car mount for a GPS or a temporary gadget mount to attach to a guitar. And that, apparently, is only the beginning. Starting at £7, backers can come up with their own additional ideas come September 2014.
Nik Conomos has designed the Ultima S as a follow-up to its previous crowdfunded iPhone car mount. The project creator says that it also rivals the former model for being stylishly sleek. However, the all-aluminum iPhone holder is apparently an improvement on its previously best car mount, complete with a suction cup of super strong sucking power and an improved ball joint that stabilizes iPhones in their holders. It’s compatible with iPhones that have either a flat or slightly rounded back. A pledge of at least $45 will get a backer an Ultima S Car Mount in either silver or matte black with an expected delivery date of May 2014.
