One entrepreneur took it upon himself to fix a problem many people encounter while flying.
The Airhook is a mount that can hold an air traveller’s smartphone or tablet while also holding a drink — all without the seat tray having to be put down.
A recent NBC investigation found dangerous levels of bacteria on airplane tray tables, so the product not only enables more comfort for airplane passengers but also extra peace of mind when it comes to cleanliness.
While the FAA has banned certain gadgets in the past, founder Craig Rabin told Fox in a recent interview that he’s confident that his product will be accepted.
The company recently finished a successful Kickstarter campaign for the Airhook, raising over $72,000 with a target goal of $15,000. It’s available for $22 on its website.
