We’ve seen some weird and wonderful mobile phone accessories in our time but MoPods really take the biscuit. Why? Well for starters these funky little wearable characters live in transparent domes. But more importantly, they spin and flash when your mobile receives a call or text.
Yes, we know it sounds a bit silly but MoPods aren’t half as daft as those Bluetooth headsets favoured by middle-management morons. And if you hate missing calls, MoPods are infinitely more imaginative than a deafening ‘I’m wacky, I am!’ comedy ringtone. (And that includes the 24 CTU one, the theme from Grange Hill and the music from Austin Powers. Yawn).
The idea is to wear your MoPod as a kind of charm-cum-collectable on bags, belts, clothing, keyrings, or even mobiles. With several characters to choose from including a penguin, kitten, monster and devil, MoPods are destined to become must-have mobile accessories amongst fashion-conscious phone fans everywhere. In fact our good friends in Japan (always first with the coolest peripherals) have already gone completely MoPod mental.
It goes without saying that MoPods come in handy if you’re in a noisy pub or sitting on a clattering train, but they also make brilliant desktop/work companions – especially if your phone is in silent mode. Having said that we can’t be held responsible for the consequences of wearing a flashing, spinning penguin in a board meeting.
More than anything, MoPods are impossibly cute companions that are also extremely practical – and you can’t say that about your average collectible thingamabob.
The price of a any single MoPod is about $9.30.
