Crowdsourcing Mornings: Ringo – The Water Bottle That Magnetically Holds Your Phone

Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Mornings segment!  Every weekday morning, Geek Alabama talks about and features one crowdsourcing project from crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and others.  The hope with Crowdsourcing Mornings is to feature and help a project be successful and reach its fundraising goal.  Please enjoy today’s featured project!

We’ve all been through the struggle of trying to prop up our phone with whatever we can find to take a group photo, watch a movie, video chat with loved ones, or follow a recipe. Not to mention the struggle of finding the perfect angle to follow a workout or record one.

Let’s just say the results are… less than ideal. Double chins, weird crops, and falling phones – the struggle is real.

These frustrations were getting all too common in our own lives, and we didn’t want to carry a bulky tripod around with us everywhere, so we wondered what could be done to get rid of this frustration using an item that we already carry with us on a daily basis.

That was the “aha!” moment for us – and Ringo™ was born.

With adjustable positioning for both portrait and landscape use, Ringo™ ensures that your device is always at the perfect angle and height for that selfie, zoom call, or timer’ed group photo. It’s easy – just snap it on and adjust it to the perfect angle for whatever you’re doing.

It goes with you everywhere, so you’re always ready to capture the moment, consume your favorite content, and connect hands-free with perfectly positioned video calls… or however you want to use it!

Ringo™ combines a premium double-wall stainless steel water bottle, the kind we carry with us every day, with an ultra-strong MagSafe phone mount that’s always there when you need it.

Ringo’s advanced bottle tech will keep your drink hot or cold all day long, and its integrated pro-grade magnetic tripod mount securely and conveniently holds your device whether the bottle is empty or full.

Oh! (or should we say… “O!”) – the ring also works as a carry handle.

The true usefulness of Ringo™ only really hits home once you’ve been using it for a while – and its uses are endless. Entertaining kids, keeping your phone off of the sand at the beach, using it at a bedside alarm, recording your tennis practice, your golf swing, your wake-surfing, using it to help you navigate while driving – how will you Ringo™?
