When you first look at the Tstand, you’ll have doubts that it can hold an iPad. When someone shows you how it holds a tablet over your face, you’ll marvel that anyone ever thought it was a good idea. But then you’ll try it, and realize that it will change Netflix in bed forever.
In a so-crazy-it-just-might-work design, art student Andrew Kim, created the polyply. It's a stand made from acrylic plastic, birch plywood and birch that can hold an iPad, iPod and iPhone 4 (and for some reason, a stylus) all at once.
We had so many people sending us tips about the PadPivot stand today that I was beginning to suspect the designer had signed up for a multitude of alternative email addresses. Until I looked at Kickstarter, and saw that the $10,000 goal had been exceeded—by $106,426, with five days still to go.
There's a good number of nice iPad stands—most recently Twelve South's Compass—but at some point you have to ask yourself how much stand is too much. The PadFoot does the job and stays out of the way.
When you put the iPad on the Just Mobile UpStand, it just looks so cute. Like a child-sized version of the iMac.
Those looking to minimize desk clutter will be pleased with HyperMac's entrant to the iPad stand rodeo, offering a built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery for 16 hours of extra life.
It's $50. But in an age when Apple was just selling fanboys Livestrong bracelets for $30, I don't think we can complain about that point too much.
As this thing costs 25 notes, I'm going to suggest you pick up some wood and a drill and make it yourself. If you really don't have the inclination for doing so, then head over to Etsy and cough up.
Well, this is clever: a felt and leather iPad case that rolls back to become a stand with two different viewing angles. Not to mention it's pretty chic even without the extra functionality. Here's how it works:
I'm glad someone actually took the time to design a simple stand that not only matches the iPad's industrial design but makes it look even better. The Joule's made in California, but it reminds me of classic 70s European designs.
