Today’s review item can easily be mistaken for a Hacky Sack. The MovieWedge is basically a bean bag and is used with various portable media devices as a stand. Sounds far fetched, doesn’t it? It is simple in it form and function yet remarkably versatile.
MovieWedge is basically a beanbag with a lip area designed for supporting most lightweight portable devices such as a PSP, iPhone, iPod Touch, Zune, etc.
Eschewing fold up parts, shiny metal and rubber feet, MovieWedge delivers a simple design that serves its purpose well. With this product what you see is what you get. Here is what the company has to say about the product.
The MovieWedge comes packaged in a clear plastic bag. It is covered in a black micro suede material allowing the stand to function as a screen cleaner.
The form of the MovieWedge is a triangular beanbag with a “lip” area with a small ledge where the portable device rests. The lip rests perpendicular to the opposite edge of the bean bag creating a pyramid shape for resting the media device.
While other stands require the device being viewed to be free of enclosures or cases, the Movie Wedge does not.
Designed to be light and portable, it can be easily thrown into a laptop bag or pocketbook and takes up minimal room.
The versatile stand that works with a wide variety of portable media devices such as Apple’s iPod Touch and iPod Nano, the Sony PSP and Microsoft’s Zune; mobile phones such as the Apple iPhone, Samsung Instinct, Blackberry Storm and basically any other device you can fit snugly in there!
Have you ever tried watching a movie on your iPod Touch or iPhone only to realize it’s not that fun to hold your device for hours at a time? Did you then try to prop it up against stacks of books or magazines or try to create an improvised stand or holder with limited success? So did we. That’s why we created the MovieWedge. Hope you find it as useful as we do.
-Holds your device in place on uneven and unsteady surfaces
-Variable viewing angle
-Compatible with virtually any case or enclosure your device is in
-Soft microsuede covering perfect for wiping screen
Setup involves resting the MovieWedge on some form of surface which does not have to be level or even. For my tests I tried the MovieWedge with my iPhone 3G and PSP. Since the MovieWedge is a beanbag, it can mold to whatever surface you place it upon including uneven surfaces.
The lip section of the stand allows it to wedge my iPhone and PSP into a comfortable viewing position. The viewing angle can be easily adjusted by molding the beanbag body into the proper orientation.
The micro suede material is soft and can clean your screen if things are too “fingerprinty”.
