If you have been using your iPad or iPhone in bed, you might want to help Kickstart the Mobile Pad Cloud, an iPad iPhone bed stand on Kickstarter.com.
The Mobile Pad Cloud is a lightweight, stable and hands free way to hold the iPad and iPhone in bed or anywhere you use your Apple toys. It’s a foam triangle with a cavity on two of it’s sides; one vertical, one horizontal. You choose which cavity to sink your device into; horizontal to view Netflix or Vertical to play Angry Birds and watch on 45 or 90 degree angles.
Most iPad stands on the market are metal, tippy and not very good in bed. The Mobile Pad Cloud is lightweight, stable and very good in bed!
The Mobile Pad Cloud is nearing actual production and for the product to be produced, the costs go up exponentially. Tricia Hanley the inventor and designer behind the Mobile Pad Cloud has set up a Kickstarter.com project page in hopes to fund a kickstart of Mobile Pad Cloud manufacturing.
From the Kickstarter.com web site:
Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Every month, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.
A new form of commerce and patronage. This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project.
All or nothing funding. On Kickstarter, a project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands. Why? It protects everyone involved. Creators aren’t expected to develop their project without necessary funds, and it allows anyone to test concepts without risk.
Each and every project is the independent creation of someone like you. Projects are big and small, serious and whimsical, traditional and experimental. They’re inspiring, entertaining and unbelievably diverse.
