Breffo Spiderpodium Universal Smartphone Holder - Car Mount On Ventilation System
A while back we featured the Spiderpodium smartphone holder here on CoolPile.com.
Now we’re back with a full hands-on review, a lot of pictures, a complete review Youtube video as well as with some new thoughts about what is deemed to be one of the most versatile smartphone stands and car holders out there.

First, the Spiderpodium is a bit bigger than I expected based on the pictures I checked on the Breffo.com website. And this is good news, because it offers an even better grip and I was hoping! The smartphone holder sports 8 legs covered in a rubbish material which serve both securing the phone as well as positioning the Spiderpodium on almost any type of surface. The smartphone holder works with all phones up to 5″ including iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S series, LG G series and any other maker/model on the market (if you own a phablet or a tablet, Breffo also has a bigger version of the Spiderpodium available to accommodate your needs), works with GPS units, digital and action cameras, flashlights … you name it!

"Water From A Stone" Or How To Automatize Flowers Watering
Are you one of those guys who often leave home for fun weekends or for short business trips? Or you’re simply afraid of forgetting to water your flowers on daily bases? No longer worry about it! We have your back covered!

ALSO CHECK the Tempo Bluetooth Smart Temperature Monitor we featured earlier.

The “Water From A Stone” automatic watering system is a fancy way to keep your flowers watered. Simply remove the cork, fill up with water, replace the cork in it’s original position, place the water stone into the planter (cork facing down), give it a couple of gentle taps and you’re ready to roll! The water stones are made of quality glass and each holds 7oz (207 ml) of water, just enough for watering a small flowers pot for a couple of days.

Salutoo iPhone Sticky Skins And Cases
Salutoo, the German company behind the cool adhesive smartphone skins and cases, just released their latest case collection (SM)ARTPHONE by Salutoo!
Build in collaboration famous artists such as French Graffitti drawer Shuck One, NY based Chris Uphues, California’s David Choate and at last but not the least Mark Kessell, the Salutoo-Art collection brings the world of art into the geeky world of smartphones.

Just as the regular Salutoo skins, the new collection features the same ingenious quality epoxy build which confers your smartphone sticky capabilities. You can easily stick your phone to the bathroom ceramics or mirror, to your car dashboard, to your PC screen’s frame, your fridge or any other flat surface around.

The Salutoo skins are available for various models such as iPhone 4 and 5 series, Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4 and even for iPad Mini, come in a range of vibrant models and colors (some of the pictured above) and are available for purchase on Amazon.

Check out the attached video for a hands-on review where I also mount one of the skins on an iPhone 5. Although this was the first time I ever mounted a such skin on a phone and the iPhone also had a screen protector (which did not help my effort!), the entire action took less than two minutes. Another cool thing about the Salutoo skins (which also helped my effort!) is the fact that the skins can be removed as easily as they can be applied.
In the end, if you’re not into mingling with the skins to perfectly apply them on your iPhone, Salutoo also offers classic iPhone cases with the same impressive designs and functionality.

Check the post for more pics and a Youtube video review of the Salutoo cases and skins.
