quick draw iphone shot

What’s your take on belt clip cell phone holsters? I used to sell cell phones, and I would cringe every time a customer would buy one. They’d say, “it’s just so accessible.” I even had one guy show me how much faster it was taking it out of the holster than it was his pocket. Ok.

But what if you want that kind of accessibility, without the fashion faux pas? Then you might be a candidate for this new iPhone quick-draw system. The contraption fits around your arm, and catapults your iPhone from under your sleeve to your hand in milliseconds…


Ok, so the system’s not exactly ready to ship yet. And frankly, we’re not sure that it serves any kind of purpose beyond making us laugh a little bit this morning. But people seem to love it — the video has garnered nearly 200,000 hits since it was posted yesterday afternoon.

We couldn’t find much info on the inventor either. The clip resides on the WATCHSARETV1 YouTube channel, with the title ‘Japanese Guy’s iPhone Quick-Draw System.’ And the description just says: “Listen, you screwheads. Here is a man who would not take missed calls anymore.”

Sooo…what are your thoughts on the video?
