Let's say you want to look like a clown but for some reason don't want to strap a tablet onto a bright pink sombrero (crazy, I know). Well, fear not, for some of the Internet's most promising minds have found just the solution for you.
It's called Headflat, and it's a visor-based apparatus that looks kind of like the headgear from your dental-themed nightmares. Instead of fixing your teeth, though, this contraption holds your phone in front of your face. Which, in a fitting twist, might result in your walking into a metal pole and then needing actual orthodontic headgear as a result.
Headflat's creators say the device could solve the oh-so-pressing problem of having your smartphone in your hand and getting fingerprint smudges on your screen. Instead, you can just strut around with this giant thing strapped to your head. Benissimo!
Not surprisingly, Headflat didn't reach its funding goal on Kickstarter -- though the project did manage to raise a whopping $78,000 from a total of 172 backers. Keep dreaming, you crazy kids. One day, you'll find a way to attach your phones to your heads and show your friends and family just how awesome you are.
