9to5Toys Specials currently has the ‘Neutron A’ Magnetic Phone and Tablet Car Mount for $30 with free shipping. It uses powerful magnets for an instant secure hold.

The benefits of being able to use your phone safely while driving are obvious. But getting your phone into many holders is a challenge, so the Neutron A’s magnetic mounting is refreshing. You simply stick a small patch onto the back of your phone or tablet which makes it strongly attracted to the Neutron A’s magnet. As a result, you simply have to hold your device up to the mount for it to lock into place. The mount and the stick-on pad are held on by strong-but-removable 3M VHB tape (usually used in aircraft maintenance), meaning you can use the Neutron A with a case.

  • Allows quick removal and attachment of your device
  • Machined from solid aerospace aluminum
  • Holds devices up to 1 lb
  • Contains shielded magnets that will never lose their hold (even dirt and temperature resistant)
  • Includes 3M VHB tape that is easily installed and removed
  • Works with a case attached to your device

PIXELKABINETT-1
In my house video games are required, per my fiancé’s request (obviously), to be in the basement and out of sight. I’m sure my love for Mortal Kombat’s skull shattering gore doesn’t help my cause, but it’s more than that. She also hates the ugly boxes and nests of wires that come along with gaming consoles.

Now, if I had the Love Hultén PIXELKABINETT 42 I have a feeling things would be pretty different. This full-size coin-operated arcade cabinet looks like a priceless piece of fine art and supports hundreds of classic games… Read more
