Local Inventor featured on KickStarter

podpropsKen Malsan, co-creator of  the Cohabit iPhone puzzle app, has just launched his latest invention — PodProps.  A PodProp is a flexible smart phone dock, perfect for holding an iPhone or iPod Touch.  Channels cut in the bottom of the stand allow you to charge your device while it’s in place, and the soft material keeps it safe and secure.

To raise awareness for the product, and generate the funding needed to begin mass production, Ken has launched a KickStarter campaign.  It will remain open until June 4th, by which time he hopes to have raised $15,000.

I have been using a prototype in my office for nearly a year now, and I really like it.  I’m guessing you will too.

Take a look, and let me know what you think!
