The Move allows you to virtually wear your iPhone
Sleeping with your iPhone? Now you can wear it as well – The Move project on Kickstarter caught our attention with its simplicity: clipping your iPhone anywhere on your clothes happens so easily and tightly that it almost looks like the phone is sewed. But the project's slogan “Become one with your iPhone” is pretty catchy/creepy as well.

So what is The Move? Nothing more than a simple holder for the iPhone 4 (works also with same-gen iPod touch) with no straps, clips, velcro or magnets. It won't affect your clothing in any way as you just place it underneath your t-shirt for example where you want your iPhone to be, then place the handset in front of it and snap it right in. You'd only get to see the screen of the device but there are cut outs for the physical buttons as well.

You might wonder what's practical use, but there seems to be plenty – shooting videos without having to hold the device with your hands sounds like an awesome idea for going to a concert for once, but also using it as a hands free phone or for listening to music while jogging. It's not yet available but pledging $25 secures you The Move with free shipping to the US and Canada, while for other countries you'd have to add $8. Check out the video below for all the juicy details.

Wait is this for real??? LMAO... so they go around at parties showing off their invention to drunk people?? I can't wait for the spoof of this video...of course its amazing when your drunk not to mention how easy it will be for a criminal to get punch you in the face and take your phone just for the thrill. Best part of this is the non discreet blade wannabe trying to catch you in the act...come one people MOVE on.

I think this is a good idea if you're working out or hiking and you don't gave any pockets to hold a phone.

I've held my iPhone for 30 min at a hockey game, and I was thinking there has to be a better way. As for people thinking they're gonna get them stolen, this product is really no different than those sleeves you put on your arm - and those suck AND you can't use them for anything else. I have one and it always slips down and is falling apart

Hm, use it for jogging?
1) How does the headphone jack connect? Through a hole in your shirt?
2) Having it on your chest/arm will make it flop around with anything faster than a walk. Very annoying.
3) This will cause nasty wrinkles I'll never get out. I vowed I would never iron again. I can't go against my morals.

I have the Adidas Griffin GB01817 armband. Works great. Even has a slot for a house key.

Do they make one for wool sweaters, the kind made from sheep?

Props to the inventors, though.

I just ordered one :), the headphone works by folding the wire before you snap it in. Gonna wear it jogging and walking AND for the sweet point of view video taking ;). As for wrinkles, I'm just not going to wear it with something like a silk shirt (kind of a no brainer)
