New Attachment System for iPod Nano
A team of California designers has developed a system to keep the tiny Sixth Generation iPod Nano always at hand. The system is a set of precision-machined aluminum bases, called iHooks. The Nano attaches to an iHook with its built-in clip. Once it is clipped to its base, the Nano is held firmly. It is easier to control, won’t get lost, and won’t fall to the ground when pulled by its headphone cord.
You mount one of the iHook bases everywhere you use the Nano. As you move from place to place, just unclip the Nano and clip it to an iHook at the next location. The iHook is designed to be glued, taped, screwed, riveted, tie-wrapped or sewn to the appropriate surface.
The iHook system represents a new approach to using today’s smaller mobile devices. Because the iHook is constructed simply, it is practical to use this mount in many locations. There is always a stable and accessible place to clip the mobile device.
This week the iHook launches as a technology project on Kickstarter.com. Funds for production tooling will enable initial deliveries of the iHook in November. Sets will be available in all seven iPod Nano colors. The first 250 supporters will receive a special-value reward of nine iHooks. The live Kickstarter project can be found at:
