Forget the selfie stick, I want to be able to just slap my iPhone up against the wall or window and have it stay there for taking pictures. Am I alone here? With the upcoming Zero G Anti-Gravity case for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, that dream could very well become a reality.
Mega Tiny Corporation, the company behind this mystical piece of magic, has fully funded their project on Kickstarter, and expect to start delivering the Zero G Anti-Gravity case sometime between the middle and end of May. The case uses a patent-pending design that allows it, with your iPhone in it, to stick to most smooth, flat surfaces without being sticky.
How does it stick, then, if it’s not sticky? The answer lies in millions of extremely small suction cups. This nano-suction material has been used in other applications, such as the Clingo universal car phone mount, and it works surprisingly well without being sticky to the touch. If dust or lint accumulate on the nano-suction material, you can just rinse it clean with water or wipe it off on your pants leg.
The case itself is thin but durable, with slightly raised edges that protect your screen from drops. Even though it’s a tough case, it is surprisingly trim, adding just 3mm to the thickness of your phone. That’s about as thick as two dimes stacked together, making the case easy to slip into your pocket.
For now, Mega Tiny Corporation is only planning to produce the Zero G Anti-Gravity case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but they are monitoring the demand for cases for other devices, such as the iPhone 5s. If you want to get in on the action, you can still back the project on Kickstarter or go to Mega Tiny Corporation’s website for more information.
