A simple platform to elevate a phone, tablet, multimeter, and similar equipment at a nice viewing angle, allow for freedom of movement, with the ability to lock it down if needed. 

The Widget Wedgy is an accessory initially intended for the large mobile device market. Unlike other device mounts, clips, and holders it has an open pedestal design making it more universal and versatile to expand into other markets. It is designed to be easy to 3D print and (with slight modification) mold injected for mass production. (See notes in PDF). The prototype is designed to fit most phones and smaller tablets. You can easily modify the design file to fit larger devices and adapt it for other uses like pedestals for books, laptops, etc.

Download contains STL files for the prototype we built in the lab, the parametric OpenSCAD file so you can modify the design, and build instructions that includes references to parts needed.  Want a copy of a Widget Wedgy for reference? There may be some Widget Wedgy Prototypes left.
