Here is a great, simple idea, which is still in the prototype stage.  The Orbit, a swivelling smartphone (and now camera) mount, is the brainchild of San Francisco designers Jon Norton and Joe Molinari who tout its versatility as a handsfree tool.  The Orbit gives the user the ability to affix your device to almost any surface by virtue of a pair of suction cups: one which attaches to the unit and the other which attaches to the surface.  The clear, repositionable polycarbonate discs can be stuck almost anywhere meaning your device can be mounted to a painted wall, wood surface or dashboard. The rotating ball-and-socket joint ensures that the perfect angle can be achieved with minimum fuss.  One of the suction cups is removable and doing so reveals a threaded insert that allows it to be mounted to any tripod.
