Here’s something I found a bit intriguing, it’s called the Z-Connector and it allows you to stay connected to your phone and I mean literally connected to it, by a chain. The Z-Connector is basically a security system for your phone, like the old school pocket watches used to be. A chain is attached to your phone and then the chain is attached to you. This is one of those things I’m just not sure about. It sounds like a good idea, but we’re permanently connected to our phones now it seems and this just makes that bond physical. Sure it will help you from losing your phone, but still… Anyway, you can get the Z-Connector as a separate do it your self kind of thing where it sticks to your existing phone case or you can get a specially designed case for your phone from them with it permanently attached. Check it out, and you tell me what you think.
Former ballerina, college professor, now inventor and entrepreneur Rhonda Burke Spero, co-owner and designer of the Z-Connector (www.get-z-connected.com), an easy and stylishly innovative product that keeps your smartphone as safe as pocket watches were a century ago, has retained TransMedia Group for publicity.
"The DzC is a small circular apparatus with a non-permanent 100-pound bonding adhesive placed on the back of any cellular phone. This allows attachment to a designer chain, which connects to the phone, eliminating stress, anxiety, and cost of damaging or losing your smartphone investment," said Abby Blake, TransMedia’s Manager of Public Relations.
To save her son from wasting money on new phones and hundreds of dollars on cell phone insurance, Spero designed the Z-Connector and the DzC so her son’s smartphone and his body would be like two dancers elegantly connected in a pas de deux that would never result in a dropped, lost or stolen phone.
"TransMedia will publicize the invention as a functionally fashionable security system for businessmen and women, busy moms, teens and young adults who want to ‘stay connected’ to their personal smartphone. Also, it will highlight how the Z-Connector allows people to keep their phone safe and on hand just as grandpa stayed attractively tethered to his pocket watch," said TransMedia Group’s CEOTom Madden.
"Spero came up with the idea from people securing mittens to winter jackets up North with suspender-type fasteners. The Z-Connector works similarly with one end of the Z-Connector Designer Chain connected to the DzC or Z-Connector apparatus on the back of their smartphone and the other end connected to clothing, purse, briefcase, book bag, etc," said Blake
The Z-Connector debuted Sept. 22 and is sold exclusively online. Spero received her B.F.A, M.E.D, and PhD. from The Ohio State University. Spero was a Professor at University of Miami’s Department of Education. She was a professional dancer, a performing arts instructor for BalletMet, and Founder and Artistic Director of the Neoteric Dance Theatre and Rhonda Burke Dancers in Columbus, Ohio.
