Holding stuff in your hands is for losers. Especially when you’re in bed. Then you just want to turn into a sloppy rag of a human being and holding something an iPad up to your face sucks. That’s where the Tablift enters. It positions itself as a better alternative than the myriad iPad stands on the market currently. These are prone to either tipping over when on an unstable surface, or needing a sturdy surface (like a floor) on which to rest their weighted bases. The Tablift instead features four twistable legs and a three-slotted receptacle that lets it cradle the tablet in three different positions (and angles): sitting, reclining and lying down. Its wide base means it won’t tip over on an unstable surface, while it’s spider-like configuration means you can just rest it on your bed, even when no floor is available around you. And finally, since its legs are twistable, the entire thing can be made small and very portable.
Currently it’s a $55 pre-order on Kickstarter, which will go up to $60 once the early-bird models have sold out.
