Sniper Stand – Appropriate Technology Rules!

The Sniper Stand deserves an award for elegant simplicity. A tiny plastic nub allows iPhone users to prop up their phone as a TV / Computer screen using the Sniper Stand and a Credit Card. Although a tiny plastic blob is arguably overpriced at $9.95, so is everything else with respect to iPhone accessories and at least this one seems to provide a valuable service to users.

The thing I really like about this is how it demonstrates that functionality in technology does not need to be complicated. Too often we assume that an advanced technical solution is required when in fact all we need is a little ingenuity. Good show, Sniper!
