They Innovate, a Canadian design company, has come up with a Kickstarter campaign to fund their phone/tablet mounting accessory that can attach to almost any surface; clothes, walls, car dashboards and many more. The accessory uses magnets to secure itself to the fabric and uses a clipless connector to hold your phone in place. A mount is also included to secure it to flat surfaces.
Clipless works in pretty much the same fashion as any traditional belt holster does. The catch here is that the accessory secures itself to any part of the fabric, and the magnetic adhesion ensures that it stays there. The ability to secure it to your wall and car dashboard is another plus point. The magnetic power ensures that it is properly secured in all thin and medium-thickness fabrics.
The clothing accessory has three main parts: disc, Clipless and connector. An NFC mount is also added in to communicate with the phone or tablet. Clipless meant for surfaces uses a unique adhesive to stick to your phone’s or tablet’s back and it works on almost any material (aluminium, plastic, fake leather); it doesn’t work well on flexible materials such as silicone cases and genuine leather though.
The NFC enabled mounts allow a phone or tablet to automatically run tasks depending on the surface it is mounted on. They Innovate have partnered with the creators of “NFC Task Launcher” to give support for the software.
The Kickstarter campaign of Clipless has set itself a goal of $25,000 USD to manufacture its first batch. With more than $11,000 already pledged to the campaign and 28 more days to go for it to finish, it looks like it is well on its way to a successful start.
