Belichick and Brady.
Vodka and OJ.
Old jackets and forgotten cash.
And now: something that lets you charge your phone and take sturdy video of your nunchuck-ing skills. Or, you know, something else.
Smile pretty and say hello to The Bobine, the glorious birth of what amounts to a form-retaining cable that charges your phone, available now for your iPhone or Android smartphone.
So imagine: you want to take video of your dog wrestling a paper bag. Only problem: you don’t have much phone juice left. You’ll attach your phone to this, bend the cable into a coil to give it a secure base to hold your phone at just the right angle to capture the footage, sit back and feel like Martin Scorsese. (Note: this also works for late-night hotel room trysts.)
And because it retains its formed shape like a pipe cleaner, you can even wrap it around stuff (signposts, tree limbs, kitchen cabinet handles), should you ever want shots from above.
Although placing your phone in a tree to charge it sort of defeats the convenience factor.
