Keeping a close watch on the appearance of new fancy gadgets on the markets has become common today. So is changing our phones once very two-three years. As a result, the whole mobile accessories industry developed around our gadget mania. According to ABI Research, its global revenues are estimated at about US$80 billion in 2015, with a forecast to grow to $101 billion by 2020. Such accessories are diverse and are fairly affordable, so almost every one of us owns at least a couple of them: there are wireless charges, external batteries and hard drives, different holders, Bluetooth speakers and even mini-projectors to stream movies or presentations directly from your phone.
The problem that a modern user faces nowadays is how to conveniently integrate all these various accessories with the gadgets they are built for?

Grygoriy Syerykov, Smart Stand project manager shared: “Only in our experience working with retail and hospitality sectors for the last 20 years, we see a big demand, that is counted in tens of thousands pieces yearly and keeps growing, for docking stations that turn an ordinaty tablet into a multi-functional POS-terminal. So we felt the necessity to offer an ordinary consumer something just as practical.”
The Smart Stand idea already found it’s investor and the project is on the final stage of realization now. In April this year it will be presented to the consumers on Indiegogo platform at a special price starting from $23.
The stand will have two variations: a Phone Stand (with possibility to insert a wireless charger mat even Blackberry phones) and a Tablet Stand. It will have at least two mounting options – magnetic clips and regular plastic fixtures, that can also be adjusted to accommodate a mini-projector. Thanks to adjustable top that turns 180 degrees, you can find the most appropriate height and angle for your projection.
