You can buy the PuGoo XL right now, but the Mini version is still in the funding stage at Kickstarter. The Mini will ship to Kickstarter supporters in December, 2014.
While the PuGoo XL is 4″ x 8″, the Mini will be 1.5″ x 2″, a much handier size for placing in tight spaces.

PuGoo is a specially formulated Nano Suction Pad that sticks to smooth, non-porous surfaces, and is easily removed while leaving no residue. Works great on finished wood, tile, laminate, glass, granite, plastic etc. It cannot grip onto dirty or porous surfaces such as rubber, silicone, soft touch TPU, heavily textured or leathery surfaces.
With PuGoo Mini you can create your own phone stand, tripod mount, bicycle mount and much, much more. With PuGoo Mini pads there is no limit to what you can create.
Over time, as dust and dirt settle on the pad it will lose its effectiveness. You can clean it by wiping with a damp rag (not a paper towel or anything that leaves fibers) or run some water over it and use your fingers to clean the pad and then let it air dry. If your desk or surface is dusty, give it a wipe first. Once dry its ready for use again.

Interview With Bojan Smiljanic, Inventor of PuGoo
We asked Bojan a few questions over email about PuGoo and his background as an inventor and engineer. Here’s what he had to say.
DoItYourselfRV: What is your engineering background?
Bojan Smiljanic: PuGoo Mini was created by Jelena Tomic, Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi, and myself of B&A Studios. We are a fledgling design studio and our cumulative backgrounds are in industrial design, illustrations, engineering and marketing. We place a premium on well thought-out design, attention to detail, and time management for our projects and customer service.
DoItYourselfRV: Why did you decide to make this product?
BS: PuGoo is a product we have been using for several years now and almost all our previous product designs had this material involved in the overall product function or aesthetics. We perfected its formula and now we are ready to bring it to the world in packs of 6 🙂
DoItYourselfRV: What separates PuGoo from other products?
BS: PuGoo pad material is a specially formulated Nano Suction Technology, and with years of experience using it in many applications, we are confident it is probably the most durable as well most functional suction pad you will find on the market.
Some shots of PuGoo XL pads in action.
The Mini is about 75% smaller than the XL, but can easily hold a smartphone.
The PuGoo pad is made of a special tacky material that will stick to most smooth, hard surfaces. It won’t leave a residue, is resuable, durable, and can be washed under regular tap water.
