Future Tech: 

Your iPhone will float in thin air with this stand


Look no hands! But how?

New smartphones, accessories and apps are released every day, making it harder than ever to stand out from the crowd. Today’s latest phone is tomorrow’s old news, but here’s one way to help it rise above the rest – sprinkle a little bit of magic on it.

Apart from attracting attention from friends and colleagues, the magic phone stand is also a practical charging station, allowing you to keep your iPhone “floating” while passers by are left scratching their heads.

But how is this possible?

In actual fact, the ‘magic iPhone stand’ is about as magical as a rabbit pulled from a hat – sorry to spoil the illusion.

The seemingly bendy cable is actually a firm loop, supporting the phone through a micro-USB, Lightning or 30-pin charging port.

The mobile accessory is part of a Kickstarter campaign set up roughly three weeks ago and – despite the trickery at play – has already snagged over $27,000 despite its $8,000 target.

The stand is available for the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S/5C and Android smartphones using a micro USB adaptor for $24. It is scheduled to be in the hands of early supporters in September.
