Innovation comes in all shapes and forms, but here's something we never thought we'd be telling you about: a little device that allows you to hold your cell phone with actually holding it. The Chicago-based company that created Grip-Free phone cases didn't exactly find a way to make your cell levitate or anything. But these cases do have a tiny loop on the back of each case, allowing you to simply slide one finger through, doing away with your need to actually palm the phone.
It way not be a huge breakthrough, and while the cases come in a variety of colors and patterns, they aren't as artful as say, Kate Spade's tech accessories. Still, it's sort of a neat concept and the cases actually do seem to be incredibly protective. If nothing else, it may make taking selfies a little bit easier.
