Kids are precious cargo. We strap them down and wrangle them in everywhere we go, with the really paranoid among us controversially tying their kids the the other end of a leash. So in the case of our everyday gadgetry like cell phones, iPods and point-and-shoot cameras—only slightly less important than the kids, lets be honest—we see how there could be some really paranoid 'parents' too. You've seen them—the kinds of people that check their pants pocket for their iPhone every 10 seconds or fasten the wrist strap as tightly as they can before reaching over a banister to take a great shot of a vista. They're the market for this gadget accessory billed as the "safety belt for high-tech toys," the Mobigrip...

Mobigrip is an adhesive disc with an elastic finger loop that sticks onto any gadget with a smooth surface to keep portable electronics securely connected to their mommies and daddies, eliminating the inevitable cracks in your screen when your iPhone no longer hits the pavement beneath you.

Mobigrip, which can also be personalized with a custom-designed disc, is available here in a bunch of colors for $9.95.
