New smartphone buyers are tired of getting a new set of accessories with each upgrade. Smartphone mounts are especially problematic since they are unique to each model, may require optional parts, are complicated to use, can be bulky to carry and cannot be used everywhere. To solve this perennial issue, Acros Design has launched a new campaign on Kickstarter, a popular crowd funding site, for FUMM– the Flexible Universal Mobile Mount.
FUMM is a mount for all mobile devices for use anywhere and carry everywhere. It is compatible with any smartphone, GPS device or digital camera with a flat smooth surface. It mounts anywhere using nano suction pads, and the viewing angle can be adjusted using flexible tubes. The adjusted viewing angle will hold its position due to the stiffness of the flexible tubes.
According to Robert Han, the creator of FUMM, “The FUMM was conceived out of a desire to use my mobile devices in a wide variety of situations: in my car, on my desk while working, on my coffee table watching TV, at the lunch table, on an airplane tray, and in rental cars during business trips.”
FUMM’s design is made possible by the utilization of select custom flexible tubes, nano suction pads, and a special process by which nano suction pads can be applied to slightly curved surfaces like car windshields and certain textured surfaces like refrigerator doors.
The nano suction pad is a new material that has millions of microscopic suction cups on rubber tape. It can adhere strongly to any clean, flat, smooth surface. FUMM can hold more than a pound of weight but the flexible tube is rated to hold up to 7 oz of load for optimal flexibility.
Kickstarter is a crowd funding website that allows project creators to campaign for their products. Interested micro-backers can financially pledge toward the project of their choosing. If the project meets the stated funding target within the funding period then backers are charged according to their pledge level.
Acros Design is a Santa Clara, California based engineering design firm led by Robert Han, long time designer with industry experience encompassing IT, fiberoptic, consumer electronics, Clean-tech, Green Building and his passion, outdoor life. Their first public product offering is the FUMM.
The FUMM project on Kickstarter is live between May 24th through June 30th, 2013.
