The Gripzila universal kickstand does exactly what the name implies - it keeps small items from falling over.
Slide the spring-loaded, rubber-gripped jaws around your device of choice, set it on a flat surface and, boom, instant stable viewing platform. iPods and smart phones will hold up just fine, though the iPad is a bit too heavy to properly support. The Gripzila comes in seven colours and is currently looking for investors over at Kickstarter. A $US12 donation nets you a preproduction unit. [Kickstarter via Wired] .
