Designed in Wales, manufactured in Exeter, packaged in Manchester and headquartered in Farringdon is a rare CV for a technology product, but then only in the broadest sense is this a technology product. It’s an adaptable bendy, er, spider-shaped stand that comes in both phone and tablet size. Yes it works, and it’s potentially useful. But is it sensible? Not really, no, it’s not.
