Where as most device mounts for phones, tablets and GPS hardware only use a single suction cup to stick to a mounting surface, the MobileMount features a suction cup for the device itself as well. So there doesn’t have to be multiple versions, each compatible with a different device. The suction cups also feature a twisting mechanism which serves to suck the remaining air out of the suction cup, providing a longer lasting and stronger grip.
For devices that feature a matte or rubberised finish, the MobileMount comes with adhesive vinyl discs that can be attached, providing a smooth place for the suction cup to do its thing. And a simple ball joint between the two mounts makes it easy to position and reorient the device, without having to break the suction seal. The Kickstarter project was originally seeking $US20,000 in funds for tooling and building additional prototypes, but with 15 days left to go it’s already raised well over $US63,000. So for a pledge of just $US25, you can ‘secure’ one for yourself. [Kickstarter]
