Une Bobine for iOS: the Gorillapod of Charging Cables
May 8th, 2012
There are a million docks, stands and cables for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but Une Bobine can replace them all. It’s a charge and sync cable that’s flexible yet also stiff, much like Gorillapods. Une Bobine is French for “a coil”, and it literally is a coil. Or “une bobine” if you already speak French.
Thanks to a “very specific metal gooseneck material”, the cable can be bent or coiled, nay, bobined into a variety of positions. It’s also strong enough to hold an iPhone or iPod Touch upright (but probably not an iPad). This lets you use the cable as a stand or a dock. Use it to mount your iPhone on your arm for easy access. Or on your forehead, for an improvised POV camera. Or on your face, just to be weird.
Slither to Kickstarter and pledge at least $25 (USD) to be one of the first owners of Une Bobine.
