what looks like a faucet magically floating in the air and pouring water is actually the latest smartphone/tablet stand from Elecom. the JAGUCHI (Japanese for faucet) as it is called, is the 5th Elecom collaboration with the Tokyo-based design studio, Nendo. the “ripples” not only adds to its realism but also doubles as a ‘barrier’ to prevent the device from sliding off when leaning on the ‘faucet’. the concept of this design is to come up with something that will also look nice when not in use. well, in that respect, i think Elecom JAGUCHI has succeeded.
the JAGUCHI stand will be available in two sizes, one for smartphone use and the other suitable for tablet use. the smartphone version will be available in a choice of four colors that include clear, clear blue, clear black and for those who prefer milk bath, one in complete opaque white. the tablet version will be available in two colors, namely clear and clear blue. the good news is, this is not a concept product and we can look forward to its release soon. however, there is no word on the price and the exact availability. check out a few more look after the break.
