Pocket Tripod, an iPhone stand that’s no bigger than a couple credit cards, provides a steady platform for propping your iPhone up on a table, nightstand, or kitchen counter. Only 2.3mm thin, Pocket Tripod was designed to be practical, available for any given moment to fill a variety of needs. Pocket Tripod unfurls to become a angled stand on an airline tray or an immediate tripod for capturing a family portrait. Because of the iPhone’s uniform edges and design, the stand is able to accommodate the iPhone in a variety of positions in portrait or landscape, seating it vertically or tilted back at any angle.
The card sized stand was designed to meet manufacturing goals and to withstand abuse. As the stand packs flat and unfurls or disassembles to prop up the iPhone, ensuring the stand doesn’t wear out is a concern. Geometrical Inc., the company behind Pocket Tripod, claims that its design is up to the challenge of everyday use.
Kickstarter pledges start at $20 for a black or white model, which are currently all sold out. For $25, backers can expected an expedited copy of the Pocket Tripod off of the assembly line if the project is successful. Pocket Tripod has a goal of $45,000 with 29 days to go. Pocket Tripod is expected to retail for $30 when it’s available.
