An Aussie design team has taken its latest project to Kickstarter for funding, calling for US$35,000 to get the ball rolling on the production of an ingenious new mounting system for the iPhone, Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II smartphones.

The Wallee M Modular Magnetic Phone Mounting System is comprised of several components, designed to securely fix the phone to a number of different surfaces. A specially designed phone case has magnetic grooves etched into it, and three different connections hold the phone in place. One is designed to be fixed flat to a wall, another is for in-car use and the third is a stand that transforms your phone into a little monitor or TV set.

The accessory is designed specifically for the models listed above, and comes in either black or white.

Melbourne-based Studio Proper has posted the design on Kickstarter, and is listing eight different pledge levels, from US$5 to US$2400 for a resellers package. To secure one of the first Wallee M units, contributors will need to pledge US$40 or more. This is the company's first Kickstarter project, but it is not its first successful iPhone/iPad accessory design, having created the Wallee mounting system for tablets and the Pix & Stix musical accessory for GarageBand iOS devices.
