    I love it! How does it attach to the car? And how is it for vibration while driving? That has been my biggest problem with car mounts, I have an Isuzu Rodeo Sport (Amigo), so it's got truck shocks and isn't exactly a smooth ride.

    Thanks :) it hooks over a radiator vent. The hook needs a little work but it stays in place with no vibration. Never really thought about selling it. Was more of just a fool around lol. I work in a high school as woodwork technician so have access to some cool machines this being a demonstration of just one
    : )

    Any chance you can do one in neon hot pink? :)

    And you totally should sell these! Maybe w/o the HTC on it (I can see copyright problems), but personalize the back with a name, nickname, username, something.

    Of course, you'd have to figure out how to pay for materials since I'm sure you're using school stuff .... Ohh, fundraiser idea!!! Much more practical than a bake sale. :)

    Don't know if I can get pink but there is a red.lol. the thing is I've moulded it round my phone so trying to do it for other phones could be tricky. Could try get a dummy phone. There's also the issue of hooking it on to the vent coz it would vary from car to car so if I could find a way to universally attach it then I could possible consider selling them. As for the HTC logo can easily change that. Was going to put the Android robot there instead but thought id put it on the front. Not bad for a 1st attempt though. Didn't even have to do any test runs. Thanks for the feed back though keep it coming :)
