Constantly Dropping Your Phone? Give Yourself the Feinger
Here’s a tip for PR executives who are pushing smartphone accessories: Any product with a marketing video made up of an old-school beat and a line like “Ride a bike, climb a tree, multitask, take a pee — get on the dance floor and get funky!” deserves a whole new write-up.
Let’s now move on to the important business at hand (pun totally intended): The Feinger costs $15 and is made up of two-parts. First “the Knuckle” adheres to the back of your phone. Once that’s in place, you can attach either “the Sleeve” or “the Unimount/Lanyard” – the possibilities are … two!
You would want to go with the Sleeve, though, which slips over your finger (hence “The Feinger”) and it looks really cool. Mobile phone lanyards have been around since the dawn of time, but they’re still very much in style from what I hear, eclipsed in coolness only by belt clips and Bluetooth headsets. If you really want to get the whole experience, there are several optional Feinger accessories to go with.
Once you’re popped and locked and buckled in, you’ll be able to “keep your phone safe and secured to your hand with the space-age, patented aeroprene (whatever that is) band” And according to what I’ve seen, it might appeal to a few people, a niche market at the least! Try it out.
