Thanks for taking a look at this project! Please check out the video and browse through the information below. If you're interested in backing this project and receiving a Gripzila or two, just click on the big green button to the right and you'll be guided through the simple process.
Gripzila (patent pending) is a super-simple-to-use, versatile, universal stand designed to work with smart phones, iPod Touches and much more. It's intended to help enhance the use of these incredible devices and their amazing apps. In addition, its spring-loaded action makes it fun to use while inspiring unlimited possibilities like:
- hands-free video calls
- taking time-delayed photos so you can be in them
- getting online help as you complete a home improvement or repair project
- cooking -- view how-to videos, online recipes and/or actual recipe cards
- viewing what's happening while at work - stock market, incoming calls, etc.
- perfecting your golf swing - videotape your swing to see what needs fixin'
- hanging up the laundry - ha ha
- plugging your nose when changing a dirty diaper :)
- ... along with a bevy of other useful or not so useful solutions
In addition, this compact, versatile gadget will not become obsolete when adding a case or upgrading to the latest device.
Gripzila can grip and display anything from a recipe card to a smart phone with or without a bumper or bulky case. Its adjustable jaws easily slide open up to 0.8 inches wide and then clamp down on a number of different devices and objects to position them at a variety of angles and orientations.
Gripzila is smaller than a key, making it simple to slip into a pocket and its optional strap and lobster clamp allow it to be attached to a key chain, zipper or whatever suits your fancy.
