Los Angeles Times features BendyMan Flashlight and Device Holder
- Amid the glut of high-tech stands for electronic devices, the simple, inexpensive little BendyMan brings a smile.
What looks like a flat 6-inch cutout of a simple human figure is actually a rubber-coated flexible metal device holder with arms and legs you bend to cradle your cellphone, e-reader, mini-tablet or other smallish item.
The 1/4-inch-thick torso does the cradling, and the slightly thicker head — which wears tiny rubber headphones — functions as a flashlight. Flip the switch on the back of the head and the little guy’s eyes light up (really brightly), powered by two included and replaceable button-cell batteries.
Lay BendyMan out flat, and you can use him as a light-up bookmark.
BendyMan is available in bright green, pink or turquoise as well as basic black.
