I always knew I’d come back from Las Vegas with more love handles, but I didn’t expect they would be stuck to my phone. But at CES today I found a nifty little thing that half of you will laugh at, the other half will love – the Lovehandle.
Quite a simple concept really, it sticks to the back of your phone with a 3M adhesive, then the elastic band is tight to the back of your phone, allowing you to slip your fingers in to get a better grip, keep your grip in place, or perhaps hold it out in front of you.
Yes, ridiculous in many ways, but I’m using an iPhone 6s Plus, this is a big phone, and I’ve definitely dropped it now and then.
One way I do that is trying to use it one handed, stretching my thumb to hit what I need on screen. Almost impossible.
But with a finger or two through the elastic you’ve got a tight hold and all is well.
It feels strange on the phone, but then feels safe when I’m using it – a tough one.
I’ll want and see how long I keep it on the phone before making a final judgement, but I reckon it’s great. In the USA they are less than $8, and at least one Aussie retailer (Officeworks) have expressed interest in the Lovehandle here at CES – so perhaps a $10 or $11 item soon in Aussie stores?
