VGA Connector Stand: So That’s Where It Went!

VGA Connector Phone Stand

 

What’s hot one moment can quickly go obsolete in the next. The VGA connector has been a staple in terms of connectors, but someone could come up with an alternative any moment now to replace it. Before it completely disappears (and goes out of style?), the enterprising folks at Meninos decided to hollow it out and transform it into a stand for your smartphone.

A suction cup is attached on one end to hold your phone in place, while the rubber stand is shaped with a flat bottom so that it can rest steadily on any flat surface. The VGA Phone Stand is available for $8.90.

The iPad Charging Floor Stand Will Help You Use Your Tablet Without Holding It In Your Hands

ipad-charging-standj

This creative iPad Charging Floor Stand will make sure you don’t have to hold your tablet, and still get it in a position where you can comfortably use the tablet, especially when you are in bed reading, following recipes in the kitchen, or for any other reason. Interestingly, it’s not just the iPad, the charging stand supports any tablet between 7-10 inches. All you need to do is place the tablet in the tension brackets holder, adjust the mounting arm to a comfortable position and you’re good to go. The stand does not only hold your iPad, it keeps it charged as well. There’s a USB port at the base of the stand, which can charge your tablet with the device’s power cable. Do note that you have to use your owner charging cable as it doesn’t come with the stand. If this is something you want, you have to shell out $99.95 for this iPad Charging Floor Stand.

Ergonomic Laptop Stand-Slash-Tray is Perfect for Those Who Love Working in Bed

Laptop Bed Desk Tray

Ever wished that you could lie in bed and work with your back propped up on your pillows when you don’t feel like getting up and walking over to your desk? Well, I have, and I would usually just lug my laptop to my bed and start working. Unfortunately, it’s a lot more taxing on my back than I’d like, since I have to hunch over my keyboard whenever I lean in to type.

There are a lot of bed stands and tables around to take care of that problem, but none like this one I just spotted today. It’s a laptop stand-slash-tray-slash bed desk that makes working from bed comfortable and ergonomic. It’s even got a mouse pad holder off to one side and a cup holder on the other for maximum comfort (and to make sure that you never get thirsty!)

Tablift Can Help You iPad Lying Down

By David Ponce

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.

Chopping Board Turned Into Charging Stand Looks Cool

By David Ponce

Let’s face it, when you’re charging your iPhone, you usually just plug it in and flop it down on a table somewhere. But there are those who are inordinately proud of their Jeevus phones, and wish to take any opportunity to put them on display. Made of maple or walnut wood, the BaseStation for iPhone 4 has recessed spaces that will fit the phone, its connector and some length of cable for all to see. It serves no practical purpose of course. It just looks sort of neat.

It’s $52 and can be custom engraved.
