Flash Post: Arm’s Length

Une Bobine

What It Is: A magical two-in-one product called Une Bobine that charges your iPhone or Android SmartPhone yet also works as a flexible tripod. Use it to keep your phone from dragging on the floor when charging, or prop it up to blast tunes or display recipes in the kitchen while keeping it off the counters. My favourite use? You can use it as a tripod for photos as well – meaning taking a family snap or even turning the camera on yourself will no longer involve that awkward long-armed angle.

Who It’s For: Your accident-prone sibling, so they can stop replacing their phone every six months. Your queen of the kitchen wife, so she can shake her hips while whipping up dinner. Your resident family photographer, so they can actually get tagged in a Facebook photo every now & again.

What It Costs: $30 a pop. Shipping is around $12.

Where It’s At: A photography enthusiast’s dream site – Photojojo.

    I think this is such a neat invention! I would definitely get some use out of this taking some pictures, but also for when we charge our phones they wouldnt have to sit on the floor anymore 😀
