My weak arms could never hold my iPhone inches from my face long enough to make it through an entire viewing of Titanic. It’s the number one reason why I don’t watch movies on my iPhone. That and the fact that watching a movie on a 4-inch screen might make my retinas bleed.
For those that love watching movies on your iPhone though, this weird accessory called Vyne is probably perfect for you. It’s got a clip that attaches to your iPhone, and then a long maleable arm that you can drape around your neck, making it perfect for movies or more sinister activities.
Vyne is just a concept, and there’s actually not a lot of information on it other than its description on its website.
“Vyne is a hands-free viewing accessory for the smartphone. It is designed to be worn sitting down in a stationary position for viewing media content for an extended period of time. Constructed of a flexible elastomer neck and plastic clip, Vyne allows users to easily watch movies, slideshows, and video calls in a variety of configurations & locations with maximum comfort and minimum fatigue.”
According to the website, Vyne’s been patent pending since 2010, but there’s no way to buy it. We’re assuming its creator gave up on the project and never let it see the light of day, which really isn’t such a bad thing. The last thing we need are more crappy iPhone accessories, but we’ll probably see some knockoff product make it on to Kickstarter really soon.
