The Twig is described by its creator Jason Hilbourne as an "amazing ultra-portable cable for your iPhone." The team has already raised more than 120% of its initial $50,000 Kickstarter goal.

The 4-inch cable is a simple charger cable that connects your phone to your laptop. The Twig is durable enough to bend into a sturdy table stand for your iPhone. In this state, it doubles as an iPhone camera tripod. The Twig stand also makes hands-free FaceTime possible.
