iPhone accessories are great and all, unless of course you’ve got an Android or Blackberry.  You know what we’re talking about.  You hit our pages daily (wishful thinking), discover a great new case or lens for your smartphone, and then quickly that elatement turns into a sour taste in your mouth when you discover it is iPhone only.  Case in point you ask?  The olloclip.  It’s a 3-in-1 lens that provides iPhone 4 or 4s owners with a macro, wide angle and fish eye lens.

And that my friends is what makes the Macro Cell Lens Band so damn ingenious.  Embedded into the rubber band – the same thing you use to fire at your friends in middle school during lectures, or wrapped around one and other to make a giant bouncy ball – is a macro lens that in theory should work with any smartphone on the market – not just the iPhone.

And since it’s a rubber band, you can store it around your wrist, make it pull double duty as a theft deterrent wrapped around your wallet, or just leave it adhered to your phone.  Furthermore, the Macro Cell Lens Band is lightweight and really adds no bulks to your handset, unlike the olloclip and other lenses we’ve seen for the iPhone.

Photojojo has it for $15.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
