There’s always a risk of dropping a smartphone while taking photos and texting, especially when you have slightly heavier models. Startup GIC Nexus’ latest gadget will make that dubious task all the more easy.

The i-Ox smartphone grip is a small attachment that’s used on the back of any smart device. When attached, users can wear it like a ring via a foldable band, enabling them to do all sorts of one-handed abilities with their smartphones easily without fear of dropping it. Take weird gravity-defying shots, ride a bike with your phone attached, text without repercussions — this smartphone grip makes most things possible. The attachment can also turn around either horizontally or vertically, as well as become a makeshift stand for watching videos.

The i-Ox uses enhanced vacuum technology to stick onto its device. The team at GIC Nexus has made sure that it’s engineered to be lightweight, portable and durable. It’s made out of stainless steel and is no bigger than a typical ring.

The Kickstarter page is at US$30,847 and is close to its US$35,000 goal with 28 days left to go. Interested parties living in Asia can get it via the early bird promotions if they have more than US$25 to spare for the crowdfunding project (shipping prices included).

Video’s below so you can see what other nifty things you can do with the slender-looking gadget.
