If you’re looking for a durable, no-nonsense iPhone 6 or 6 Plus stand that you can take with you anywhere, you’re looking for something like the MOS Kick.
Currently on Kickstarter, the MOS Kick is nearing closer and closer to it’s funding goal. I’ve gotten my hands on an early prototype and my verdict is in: this is a super-handy little iPhone stand (kick-stand, get it? Get it?!).
I received my Kick right before Thanksgiving and the timing couldn’t have been better. The kick is the perfect stand for recording video of a group of people doing holiday stuff: cooking, eating, talking and just generally hanging out. It worked out perfectly until someone backed their butt right up next to the camera lens: full moon!
The Kick is utilitarian. It’s metal, so it won’t break, it’s got a bottle opener and it adjusts to fit the width of your device. That’s basically it. Oh… it has a place to put a string or lanyard or small carabiner through so you can take it with you other ways than just stuffing in your pocket.
The utility is what makes the Kick a fun product. It just gets the job done and gets out of the way.
As I chatted with the makers of the Kick, I realized something really important. My iPhone 6 Plus is very rounded. It’s not just going to stand up on it’s own like some of the older models.
Did I mention it’s tripod-mountable? And that I love my original MOS product?
Everyone should buy two MOS Kicks: one for the house and one for the car. Being stuck without a stand when the opportunity for an awesome picture strikes is the worst, but with the Kick you’ll never have to worry about that again.
