For $20 you can fund a Kickstarter project and get a Glif iPhone 4 tripod mount and stand. The video at Kickstarter has information about the designers / makers of the Glif, as well as examples of how to use the versatile gadget.

The Glif will be manufactured with a Santoprene (grade 101-87) hard rubber. This material feels great to the touch, and holds the phone securely. It is also recyclable.
Glif is the labor of love of just two individuals: Thomas Gerhardt and Dan Provost. We put a lot of thought and energy into this thing, and we hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it. Additional information can be found at

    Well, I’ve put in my $20, it seems like just the sort of elegant design we should have more of.

    I’ll post a review if there’s interest.

    The Glif is cool, but you do have to remove your phone from its case to use it, and your phone must be an iphone 4. I work for a company called PC Treasures and we offer a tripod mount called the GrippIt, which works with any phone and lets you leave the phone in its case. Also, it’s ten bucks cheaper.
