Will you be buying the Lapdawg O-Stand?
Is it a man? Is it an alien? No, it’s the Lapdawg O-Stand!
We’ve haven’t quite worked out yet if it’s architecturally and ergonomically genius or if it is plain-old weird, but the Lapdawg O-Stand has certainly peaked our interest.
The stand is designed to hold your tablet up so that you can read content from just about everywhere – sitting or standing. The design, which you’ll be forgiven for imagining octopus legs, involves a stand that rests on elaborate, curly legs. These legs can apparently be twisted and turned to suit the exact height and position that you would like your tablet to be in. You can also remove legs, depending on your needs.
Made for iPads, Android tablets, Kindles, the Sony eReader, Nook, Kobo and other similar to it, Lapdawg O-Stand is intended to make the viewing of content hands-free and thus that much more convenient. Imagine having a recipe set up right in front of your face while cooking? Imagine not having to hold your tablet up while you read in bed? Imagine watching your favourite films with the screened positioned perfectly in front of you?
The flexibility of the legs as well as the option to detach them makes the Lapdawg O-Stand easy to store as well, which means you don’ t have to worry about tripping over it in the night. If it’s safely stored away, you also won’t wake up to curly, octopus legs and wonder what they are!
Once you get over the futuristic design of the stand, it’s easy to see why one might find tablet viewing far more comfortable with this alien-like holder around. While not available in South Africa yet, you can buy it online on their website for $79 dollars (about R643). A device that gives you the option of never having to hold your tablet again, this is one we’d like to try out.
