Pocket Tripod

Say hello to the world’s first iPhone stand that fits in a wallet!
iPhone stands have been around since the iPhone was first introduced in 2007, coming in just about every shape and size, so it’s been a while since there has been something new on the market. That was until Rambod Radmard and his team created the Pocket Tripod 360° – the world’s first iPhone stand that you can fit in a wallet!

360° Rotation
A combination of four 90° sweeps lets the stand hold the iPhone at almost any angle. It can be used in both portrait and landscape for just about anything from FaceTime to creating time lapse videos or even filming yourself twerking.

As if by magic, it’s gone!
Is it actual magic? No, but it has a beautifully thought out design. The clever design means that when it isn’t holding your phone, it’s about the size of a debit card. It may sound like a bit of a gimmick but you never realise how often it comes in handy – especially on those long train journeys with catch-up TV as your only friend.

Hands on
The Kickstarter-funded product 
will be available from their website (www.pocket-tripod.com). Never fear though, as Mayhem! has managed to get hands on with a Pocket Tripod to tell you whether it’s actually standing tall above all other iPhone stands.
It’s extremely easy to pop up – just three steps from flat to standing. Once it’s in the upright position, just slide your iPhone in and you’re away. Well, that’s true if you have an iPhone without a screen protector or a case! If you use a case on your iPhone it will have to be removed before using the stand and if you’ve got a screen protector, you’re pretty much out of luck unless you want to remove it.

Summary: The verdict is in!
It’s a pretty cool concept and comes in handy but not without having to remove the screen protector. We’re giving it 4 stars. Found any cool technology recently? Let us know on Twitter @MayhemMag!
