Enter Rocket-Rail, a very nifty idea which could have received the necessary Kickstarter funding... with a different approach. The basics are simple and the gadget could be really useful for those who use cameras or GPS systems, or those who can't ride if they don't see their iPhone in front of their eyes.
The Rocket-Rail is a CNC-machined thick aluminium blade which is to be mounted on the top ends of the fork, provided you ride a bike with clip-on bars. It comes with a ball mount which can accommodate a ton of bike-oriented accessories, and since the surface is really generous, other specific mounts can also be installed.

This idea is really nice, because it provides ample possibilities for mounting a lot of devices and is easy to install (or remove, for safety purposes, without unloading tall gadgets).

We could have gone for it even with the estimated price of $60-80 (€), but James W. Kondrat, its creator asked for a whopping public funding of $150k (€). Which proved fatal to the project, of course. However, maybe he could do some custom Rocket-Rail for interested customers, in case you drop him a line.
