They Innovate Inc. is the name of an upstart design company out of Port Hope, Canada. Focusing on the phone mounting space, their first product is the Clipless, a magnetic means of attaching your phone or tablet to any surface (including your own clothes).
Early prototypes were 3D-printed, but the team didn't get much traction; early test runs indicated what more and more people are discovering—not everyone digs the occasionally janky results you get with 3D-printed plastic. But after switching to a CNC mill and changing materials to aluminum, user feedback went positive and the group knew they had a hit on their hands.

Even cooler, the production version of Clipless will be NFC-enabled:
They Innovate started up a Kickstarter campaign for Clipless, which easily hit their modest $25,000 funding goal. There's still 18 days left to pledge, but early adopters had better hurry—the $17 buy-in slots are all gone, and you'll need to pony up $35 to get in on the action.
