(Credit: Roisin Finlay, Sunday Business Post, Outsider Editor, Ideal for fixing an iPod or an iPhone to a picnic table or tent poles, the Spiderpodium by Breffo is the perfect festival, camping or barbecue accessory. This multi-functional holder for hand-held gadgets, which looks like a spider, thanks to its eight flexible and grippy legs, is also perfect for your sporting endeavours. It can securely wrap onto your bike handle-bars or grip a workout unit at the gym - keeping your device safe (even shooting downhill on a bike) or clear of your sweaty palms. The eight notched legs ensure a secure hold and the rubber shell absorbs any shakes. It's an easily justifiable purchase being a whole lot cheaper than a lost/crushed/sweat-soaked MP3 player.

(Credit: Holly.J.Morris, Washington Post Express): The Spiderpodium looks like it might skitter. Or suck your face. Damn you, 'Alien' franchise! In fact, it's quite safe - the bendy limbs allow for hanging (like in a car) and standing.

(Credit: Gavan Byrne, Daily Star): We love our gadgets here at Toys for Boys, but finding a way to keep them where we wnat them can be a bit of a pain. Sure, a lot of them come with docks and stands, but the A-men manbag just isn't big enough to carry them all. The Spiderpodium is here to change all that. It's a bendy spider-like contraption that can be twisted and made to fit all sorts of different devices. It has eight grippy legs, just like its arachnoid cousins, that can be used to make a simple stand or even to firmly attach things to car dashboards or bike handlebars. Best of all, it's lightweight so you won't mind carrying it in a bag or pocket. The Spiderpodium is available in black or white and is the best gadget accessory we've seen in ages.

(Credit: Roam, Singapore): Sure your phone can be a video player, navigation device, camera and even a bedside clock. But how do you hold it steady for all these functions? Try this eight legged, waterproof wonder, which is billed as a "flexible, universal travel dock and gadget grip". Its many legs can be twisted to grip your phone and hold it in place, whether on flat or uneven surfaces. Or use it to mount your phone on your bike's handlebars or car's sun visor. Works as a pliable toy too.

The portable Spiderpodium has eight bendable legs that hug your iPhone or any other handhelds, allowing you to hang it on your dashboard or your bike handrail. Made of rubber and steel, it's waterproof and looks way cool to all but the most hardcore arachnophobe.

(Credit: Tom Wiggins, Stuff): Ants can't whistle, ducks can't play squash and until now spiders couldn't hold onto your gadgets. But a bit like a skeletal Gorillapod (what's with these gadget podiums taking on animal names?), Breffo's Spiderpodium has one purpose - to provide a platform for pretty much whatever you want. Its eight spindly legs wrap around your iPod, Sat-Nav, or [insert gadget name here] and hold on for dear life. You can even use it to fix your phone to your bike's handlebars. Perhaps it's time to start listening more closely to those ants...

De handleiding is simpel: klem gewoon een paar poten rond het toestel naar keuze. U kan bijvoorbeeld uw mp3-speler aan het stuur van uw fiets binden. Eindelijk een spin waarvoor de vrouwtjes niet gaan gillen.

C-NET - Crave

Car & TravelMarch 15, 2010 (Credit: John Chan, CNET): The Spiderpodium from U.K.-based Breffo is a gadget holder with eight legs. These can be manipulated to fit your needs, whether you're using the accessory as a desktop stand or a hanging holder in your car. In its promotional materials, Breffo even displays it wrapped around a bicycle handlebar so you can attach your phone to your bike. This is useful, especially if said phone is also a satellite navigation device. Right now, all I can think about is how to wrap it around my face so I can make an iPhone look like a facehugger from "Alien."

The Spiderpodium is expected to be available starting March 29 and is currently on preorder for 14.99 pounds ($23.70) - full article


Car & TravelMarch 14, 2010 (Credit: The Spiderpodium Gadget Stand Is Unnecessarily Freaking Me Out The Spiderpodium is pretty self-explanatory: It's a gadget-stand/tripod (well, an octo-pod, technically) shaped like an arthropod. Lacking much to explain, I'm going to tell you the origins of my arachnophobia. Everyone take a seat. It's about to get real.

First, to get the business part of this out of the way, the Spiderpodium is sort of a riff on the Gorillapod, only it has eight flexible legs shaped like the legs of its terrifying namesake. It's a good idea, actually; since all eight legs are equally flexible, it can be attached to pretty much anything, and it can also securely hold pretty much any gadget, of any size. It's like if Gumby was hugging your gadget, only he had eight legs and gave me nightmares. This is what it looks like in different configurations- full article

Pocket Lint

Car & TravelMarch 16, 2010 (Credit: Duncan Geere, Pocket Lint): A company called Breffo has invented a product called the Spiderpodium, which looks to do for the world of iPods and iPhones what the Gorillapod has done for the world of digital cameras.

It's essentially a stand for your Apple device, with eight arms that can fold around your device or around anything else. The company suggests clipping it to your bike handle, or the vents in your car, or even around a car seat, so that it lets you view your gadget more easily, even if you don't have a proper dock. - full article
