Is your iPhone simply too heavy to carry? Do you wish you had an easier way to bring it out into the world with you?

The wheeliebot is a wheeled iPhone case with a handle attachment! Now you can travel the world with your phone by your side!


The wheelieBot is designed from the ground up to allow iPhones to become more portable. No longer will you have to leave it at home when you go out!

After printing I reamed out the axle holes, sanded the shaft slightly and attached the two ends of the axles to each other with a piece of wire. Zip tie a broom handle on to the back and you are ready to go see the world!

The openscad file is a little rough. You need to comment out the individual parts in order to export the stls. I uploaded the stl files as well.

I took pains to make this a printible piece, as I was disappointed by the sheer number of EvD entries that are unprintible, and wouldn't even work if they could be printed.

This product is a parody, and is intended for the Engineer vs designer absurd iPhone contest. Save your breath if you want to tell me it is absurd. Or better yet, tell the fine folks over at EvD!

can i use this to get the point of view of a mouse?

What about those kid's toys that have the little popping balls in the dome? You could have a vid of bouncing balls and then give this to a toddler.

How about a voice-controlled helper bot to hold the broomhandle and walk it around near you? C'mon, that's the kind of convenience we need. You could also make the helper bot be a small form 3D scanner too while you're at it, please.

Now it needs a steerable third wheel and an app on the phone to have it follow along!

The power of zipties, lol
