Have you ever been following along with a recipe on your iPhone, but found yourself with nowhere to put the phone? When you think about it, there are probably plenty of situations where a small, portable stand would have made your life easier. This is, at least, what Unique Design Solutions (UDS) is hoping. They have just introduced the world to Vavo.

Vavo is a small, universal stand and mount for a variety of smartphones. The team behind the stand, UDS, has turned to the ever popular Kickstarter site for help with bringing it to market. The following video was created by Unique Design Solutions to introduce you to their product:

If you cannot view the embedded video above, it is also available by clicking here.

Apart from its compact size and ultra portability, a key feature of the Vavo is the specially formulated sticky pad. This pad, apparently, sticks to more surfaces than a suction cup or magnet. The nicest aspect, however, is that the pad is reusable and leaves behind no residue whatsoever.

A breakdown of the Vavo.

UDS is looking to raise $10,000 to help with the initial run of the Vavo. They are, at the time of writing, sitting at a healthy $2,544, with 46 days to go. For an investment of just $8 (or $10 after the “early bird” option has sold out) you can get your hands on a Vavo of your own.

Would you trust the small sticky pad to hold your iDevice on a wall? I am a little hesitant, but happy to give this a try. If you want to invest in the product yourself you can visit their their Kickstarter page here.
