There’s probably only one thing you should be doing while you are using your iPhone, and that’s sitting down, or standing politely off to one side of the sidewalk. Anything else is likely a danger to both you and to passersby. The folks behind the Tuidle iPhone case though, think otherwise.
The Tuidle (pronounced “twiddle”) is billed as a case that will let you “multitask with one hand.” The schoolboy in me thinks that that sounds pretty dirty, but in fact it looks very handy indeed.
The Tuidle is a case with a loop on the back, and this loop is mounted on a click-stop turntable. You just slip a finger through the loop and the phone is held safely in your hand as you type, take photos or play games one-handed. Moving the turntable lets you choose the phone’s orientation.
And here is the list of things the makers think you should be doing with it:
- walking a dog
- holding an umbrella, a subway handrail, a loved one, etc.
- riding a bike
- snapping photos
- laying down
To be fair, you’re not supposed to actually be using the phone during these activities — just holding it on your hand.
It looks like a great idea, and it is dirt cheap: The designer Naveed Ghalib wants just $8 plus $2 postage for your Kickstarter pitches.
