This is smart. Instead of using a cheap floppy cable to charge up your iPhone why not add some stiffness to it so it can work as a stand or a tripod? The Une Bobine does just that. This 2 foot long cable comes in both iPhone and micro-USB formats to handle most phones. It’s flexible but holds it’s shape when you bend it.
You can use it as a tripod/stand without even plugging it in. Wrap it around fences and things like that to take unique photos. Or use it as a stand on your desk to keep both the phone and the cables clear and out of the way (also ideal if you tend to spill things on your desk). Simple, effective, genius. $30.
