One day, while fumbling with bags and things in my hand on the train, I thought why wasn’t there something that allowed me to keep the phone in the palm of my hand so that I could use it without having to hold it like a claw.
I’ve watched people drop their phones while walking, moving through crowds, while in line at stores, on the train, anywhere and there is always that gasp and thought….
- Is it broken?
- Did the battery cover fly off ?
- Has the screen cracked ?
- Did my earphones save the day and prevent the fall ?
