While digital technologies have evolved at a rapid pace, it's true, as claimed by one member of the Breffo team that has developed the Gumstick, that humans haven't learned to adapt as quickly.

Indeed, the minimal, modular design offered by the Breffo Gumstick that acts as a stand for any handheld device is currently absent, despite the fast growth of the handheld device market. The moldable rectangular stick can easily be bent into any shape and uphold a device, with its strong, malleable design ensuring that the device stays in shape.

Some shapes that the Breffo Gumstick can be turned into include a S-shape, with the large curve acting as the phone's backrest, while by laying it down facing up, the phone can be slipped in between a curve to adjust the angle at which the device stands upright. When finished, the Breffo Gumstick can be easily squashed and slipped into a pocket or bag for easy portability. Stats for Squishy Smartphone Stands Trending: This Year & Buzzing
