Swiss Army Phone Multi-Purpose Utility. . .Or Not

Swiss Army Phone alternative to Swiss Army knife

Swiss Army Phone, the smartphone that does it all.

Any smartphone can take a picture, send a text or surf the net. But what about a phone that will open a can, pop a wine cork or clip a coupon? The Swiss Army Phone can do it all. Combining the versatility of a smartphone with the utility of a multi-purpose knife, the Swiss Army Phone would be the only tool you’d need . . . if it existed.

Fortunately or not, the Swiss Army Phone is a tool that shouldn’t exist and doesn’t. Would you buy one if it did? Probably not, but somebody might. It’s just a humorous way to point out that the usefulness of any tool depends on the many ways it can be used.

HandlePod is a Genuine Mulit-Purpose Tool

Which brings up another tool that should exist and does. Like the Swiss Army Phone, HandlePod, has multiple uses and none of the impracticality. It is the ultimate tripod alternative tool for camera stabilization in a variety of circumstances.

Attaches Easily with Elastic Cord

How about attaching it to supports for hands-free operation? That’s easy too with the elastic cord. Just wrap the cord around the support and cinch it off in the slotted handle. It holds firmly on just about anything, even large objects like power poles.

 

 

Sits on Level Surfaces Like a Mini-tripod

HandlePod sits on any level surface.

What if you just want to rest it on a flat, level surface like a mini-tripod. HandlePod does that too, vertically or horizontally.

HandlePod has many other uses and applications detailed in other articles. I hope you enjoyed the Swiss Army Phone and maybe someday it will exist. But for now, consider a more practical tool—HandlePod, the ultimate tripod alternative.
