Smarter Stand For iPad Extends What The Smart Cover Can Do

By David Ponce

The Smart Cover for the iPad is one of the best accessories you can get for it; it protects the device, locks it when covering the front and can be used as a stand. But as clever as the design is already, it could be made better. See, when used as a stand, there are only two possible angles: a very shallow angle pointing almost straight up, or a very steep angle with the device pointing almost straight forward. But what if you want something in between? Enter the Smarter Stand. It’s a set of very simple plastic clips that bind two sections of the cover together, preventing them from folding and giving you a ton of new options. Depending on how you combine the clips, you can now rest your iPad at 33 degrees, 45 degrees, or even a shallow 15 degree inclination but with a privacy screen that prevents someone in front of you from seeing what you’re doing.

It’s up on pre-order on the fully funded Kickstarter project for $11 until the early-bird deal runs out, after which it’s $14.

    It’s a neat concept, but I really question the stability of the product. If it had a 90 degree clip as well, I think it might work better.
