Take it away, Hans... HOW IT ALL STARTED
I used to go on hikes with my fiance and always forget to bring a tripod to take pictures. We’d then prop up our phone against a rock or a tree, trying to take a picture. Because of that, I always had an idea for a mechanism that could attach Telemarketing list all sorts of accessories, like battery power, lenses, clips, mounts, wallets, etc. One day I got pulled over, and got a ticket from a cop for looking at my phone. In fear of getting a future ticket, I went to a major tech store to buy a car mount.
As I was searching to pick out the perfect one, I became disappointed that they were all the same big, boring, black mount and only did one thing! That was when the idea hit me. I thought it'd be cool to merge the two (tripod and car mount) together so that I would never forget my tripod anymore, and also have my car mount. I grew up surfing and always naturally inspired by the ocean. I thought octopus and starfish were really unique on how they're able to grab and hold onto things almost anywhere easily.
