After a long hard day at work, you recline in your office seat, prop your feet up on the table (if the boss is out of the office, that is), take your smartfoam smartphone out of its hoodie, and prop it on the Zigstand.
Do you ever get tired of holding your iPad in bed? Well, it looks like there’s an accessory that will help you deal with that situation once and for all. It’s called the Hanfree and it will work with the iPad and iPad 2.
It’s true that using a keyboard with your iPad works well, but in retrospect, doesn’t it just transform your tablet into a regular computer? Elecom doesn’t think so, and they’re about to release their keyboard and matching stand to fit your your iPad.
While it looks a bit sharp for an iPhone stand, there’s no denying that this thing is unique. It’s being billed as a steampunk accessory stand, and that’s a strange way to describe something that looks so distinctly Klingon to me…
You know what really sucks? Holding stuff.
Sure, most of us have two hands and opposable thumbs, but do we really need to use them for holding stuff all the time? Lets say you have an iPad, and you want to use it.
iPhone users the world over have a hard time watching video and making FaceTime calls thanks to having to lay the iPhone flat on the table or desk. This problem has created a number of solutions on the market, none of which are as cute and gross at the same time as the Mobile Tail.
If you need a place to juice up your Nintendo DSi or DSi LL (XL here in the states), you could plug in into that boring old AC adapter that came with your system – or you could do this…
The guys at Hori Japan have come out with this ridiculously gleeful Pikachu charging stand (translated) for Nintendo’s latest handheld systems.
While I’m probably not speaking for the majority of you out there, I bring my iPad everywhere I go. I use it for taking notes in meetings, sending e-mails, watching movies, and even the occasional game of Fruit Ninja HD.
You’ve probably heard of Joby’s Gorillapod. It’s a great take on the classic tripod that doesn’t take up too much space, and works just about anywhere. Now, it turns out you can reuse your Gorillapod as an iPad stand too.
Remember the $0.69 (USD) business card holder-turned-iPad stand? This is the exact opposite of that:
It’s called the PC Set Stand, and it’s made by Japanese company Resound. It was originally made for notebooks and portable DVD players, but then Resound realized that it works with the iPad too.
There are probably a million different iPad stands out there, but none of them have the simple appeal of this one: it uses rubber bands and pencils so that your iPad can rest peacefully still while you browse.
Fresh from the streets of Korea comes the N-Board, a new gadget which lets you convert your iPad into an (almost) full-fledged netbook computer.
The handy N-Board acts as an easel to prop up your iPad, but also sports a hub with 4 USB ports, and what I thought was an unnecessary cooling fan.
Not only does this iPhone case look exactly like a retro cassette tape, it actually serves a purpose.
When out of its box, the silicon cover protects your iPhone from scratches, dust and fingerprints. But when placed inside and propped open, it provides you with a handy stand for viewing video or photos (assuming you want landscape mode).
If you’re sick and tired of having your laptop actually burning a hole in your lap, check out this unique laptop stand, which features an unusual inflatable design.
The Laptop Lilo not only keeps your lap cool, but provides air pockets for circulation so your computer doesn’t overheat.
Despite their willingness to drop dough on bleeding-edge technology, there are some geeks out there who are frugal. They will buy a nice gadget like the iPad, but they will never buy any accessories to make using the gadget better.
