Une Bobine Doubles as iPhone Stand and Charging Cord
The Une Bobine (it’s French for “A Coil”), featured above, is the latest successful iOS Kickstarter project and rightfully so.
The idea is simple. A charging cable, with a metal gooseneck material that lets you bend and contort it into different shapes, but is strong enough to act as a stand. This dock and cable in one offers an incredibly unique and minimalist solution for iPhone users out there.
The Kickstarter campaign ends June 15th, but it doesn’t really matter considering Une Bobine’s creators [FUSE]Chicken have already raised $102,296, or roughly 10 times their fundraising goal. Those hoping to secure an Une Bobine can head over to the Kickstarter page and pledge a minimum of $25 to secure their own ($50 gets you two, $75 (4), $100 (6) all they way up to $500, which gets you 33).
After blasting through their total project funding goal of a measly $9,800 [FUSE]Chicken upped the ante to $90,000, promising customers a few interesting additions if they were able to reach the goal. Well, they did it, and the additions include a 12-inch petite Une Bobine to go along with the standard 24-inch model, and the inclusion of a 3-foot USB extension cable with every Une Bobine purchase.
With more than 2,500 backers and a planned first production run of more than 10,000 Une Bobines, chances are those who want one will be be able to secure a Une Bobine when they become available later this year.
