This Handy Ztylus Stabilizer Rig Kit
If there's one thing that Apple excels at, it's making smooth rectangles that are very, very easy to drop. Unfortunately, they also cost $800, so you'll probably have to keep your fragile status symbol padlocked to your pocket. Or, you can just outfit it with a beefy handhold like this Ztylus Stabilizer Rig Kit. It mounts on a tripod, and it gives you a super secure grip, so you no longer have to worry about the age-old tradition of watching your phone suddenly launch from your hand whenever you start to walk across any surface that's harder than pudding. Pick up one of these rugged phone handles here for $21.95.
This Credit-Card-Sized Smartphone And Tablet Stand
Anyone who thrived in the rising tides of early 2000s social media knows that true selfies are supposed to be viciously grainy, and are always taken from a high angle with a Nikon Coolpix. With the advent of front-facing cameras, narcissism has been democratized, and the pioneers of the form have gone back underground with their lip rings and swoopy bangs. Fast-forward to today, and the high-angled selfie has been replaced by the more debonair, low-angled headshot -- perfect for your LinkedIn portrait or for FaceTiming with grandma. Keep your photos crisp, and even use your phone as a tiny TV, with three of these portable Credit-Card-Sized Smartphone And Tablet Stands for $19.99.
