While I would like to make the "iFeet" that dim3m made, I can't seem to use my right hand properly after my spinal op. After buying 4 pieces of the paper binders that dim3m used, i totally wasted 2 of them as I can't hold a penknife properly like I am used to.
So, to DIY my own stand, I opted for the easy way out and that is to use a book end, double sided tape and cut some anti-slip mats. At least with this method, I can angle the iPad to whichever angle I want. Just need to turn the bookend on the longer or shorter edge to adjust the angle.
The anti-slip mat prevents the iPad from slipping down as well as to provide protection.
I'm using this bookend as a photoframe for my iPad as I can connect the power supply to it without any hindrance.
Thanks......It's just a simple workaround solution.
Great when I'm using BigOven and cooking up a storm in the kitchen:D
Saw yours too and it's also a great and simple solution.
With some velcro, yours can be folded flat and carried around.....mine can't:(
i think i will hunt that lamp stand today ,,, this idea make me so psyched up.
I like the lamp stand, very clever thinking.....
Yeah, you may have to beef up the springs on a typical lamp arm, or find a way to tighten the joints to lock the position when you get it where you want.
I'm going to make a car mount for mine. The suction cup ones suck IMHO.
I've tried it and it failed. I'd have to put sturdier springs for it to work. As it is the iPad is too heavy so the thing droops down to the table. The one I built with the microphone stand works better.
