I think there are some things to mount an iPad to to suspend it above your head like this. That would probably be great for watching a movie. I think something with lots of scrolling like web browsing would just drain the blood from my arm.
Well it would only drain blood from one arm. If you didn’t have it you’d be holding it up and lose feeling in both arms
Properly shared I could have probably been making bank with the idea years ago, but I’m lazy so it’s just been me and cardboard. In bed, hee hee.
This isn’t really a problem for me… Mainly because I don’t own a tablet, so I use the internet on my computer and watch movies on the TV. But I guess that if I’d had a tablet, I would probably prefer to sit up and have it in front of me, instead of lying down and having it floating/suspended above me.
So who’s severed finger is Biff using to interface with the tablet?
Man I didn’t catch that. Good one!
It kinda looked like a crayon or a chalk stick to me until you pointed that out! I don’t know why Biff would use a chalk stick for a tablet, though…
There is something like that, and it was picked apart by posters on Fark not too long ago. The inventor basically created the gooseneck lamp. It was a standard gooseneck reading lamp base, with a mounting for a tablet instead of a light. Probably had a heavier than usual base. What we could throw together from a fifteen-minute visit to the hardware store, he expected to make a mint off of. And he is, actually.
I just found this on Amazon today. If you delete or edit this comment, I understand.
It’s listed price is $0.00
Wife just got a holder for her iPad, with a 1/4-20 tripod socket in the center; comes with a couple pretty anodized tubes for fastening to a mic. stand, so she can watch lyrics or set-list while performing. When #3 daughter was born, I rigged her a book-holder with a similar T-nut, bottom rail, and a clear hinged cover she could let down over the open book while she nursed, hands-free. Old camera tripods are easy to find.
