Linkmount Smartphone System
Modern smartphones are designed to be slim, sleek, and discreet, minimizing their function as handy cameras and portable media players. “The best camera is the one you have on you,” so goes the saying, but not having the perfect capture position often ruins a composition. Design firm PLUST out of Rhode Island upgrades a smartphone’s utility by making it compatible with tripods and giving it a grip ring kickstand, magnetic docking, and a detachable leash for carrying convenience. A $20 Kickstarter pledge grabs you the entire Linkmount system in one of four colors.
