My dad and I have a lot in common: DNA, family, phones, a 2012 Prius. A while back my dad made a quick phone holder with wireless charging. All he did was hack a cheap phone holder to include a wireless charger. It was a nice start, but I always thought I could do better.

Here is why you should vote for me in the Stick It contest.

  1. This project uses magnets to....Stick the phone to the mount
  2. This project uses Epoxy to.... Stick the wood to the plastic
  3. This project uses double sided tape to... Stick the plastic to the car

3 different adhesives used together seamlessly to create an aesthetically pleasing phone mount. What could be better than that.

Problems with regular phone holders:

  1. Either magnetic or wireless charging, not both
  2. Ugly
  3. The clips holding phones on non magnetic chargers can interfere with the buttons

How my holder fixes these problems

  1. Includes magnetic docking AND wireless charging
  2. looks great
  3. Magnets hold phone, so no interference with buttons
