Just like the MoPods phone charms, these clever little things flash and spin the moment a call or text message comes in. The difference is, these transparent domes come all the way from the Star Wars universe and contain Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper helmet. You just need to attach a Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper phone flasher to your mobile phone and the head in the device will start rotating and flashing when it detects an incoming call or a text message. To make that work the device just picks up the strong radio field that is being generated around your mobile phone, meaning that the device is going to receive a call any moment now. It is rather simple thing, but it really does a good job and it is quite cheap so you can easily get a few spare ones just in case or for presents to your friends that are also big fans of the Star Wars saga…
It goes without saying that Star Wars Phone Flashers really come in handy when you’re drinking with friends in a noisy environment or partying in a night club, but they also make brilliant desktop/work companions, especially if your phone is in silent mode. When they start to rotate and flash you will notice them even if your attention is focused on something else, or at leas someone else will see that something is happening and will ask you what is going on with that Star Wars thing.
Currently there is a promotion going on in the online shop that is selling the phone flashers, so that you can get your own personal promo code for about $8 off of any product. This way a single phone flasher will cost you absolutely nothing and you’ll have to pay only for the shipping. You can generate your own discount code on this page: Special Firebox voucher offer. The promo code will be valid until the end of this year (31st December) so you can even use it later on and not only for purchasing a phone flasher, but for just about anything available in the shop.
The Star Wars themed phone flashers are available for $8 each.
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.
