    Hey everyone!

    I am in the process of designing some Ipad/Iphone stands. They are in the prototyping phase now, and I am testing them. I was curious, how many, if any would be interested in purchasing some of these stands when I finish designing them. I think the Ipad stand will cost $14 shipped, and the Iphone stand will cost $9 shipped.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Pictures are attached.

    Thanks,
    Elliot Cohen

    They look really cool. Why don't you consider becoming an iPad Forum sponsor, then you could have your own 'section' of the Forum and market them shamelessly!!

    Thanks, and alright. They are not ready to market just yet, I just want feedback for now from people to see if people are interested in this. They are 2 pieces of flat acrylic so they can easily be transported and set up. Good, bad?

    Once I get the design right, I would become a forum sponsor!

    Nice looking. Four factors are critical for me.

    () Stability in both landscape and portrait orientations.
    () Footprint. The trick is to maximize stability while minimizing footprint.
    () Portability. Ideally the stand should fold or disassemble flat enough to pack easily. It would be nice to see a photo of the stand in its "travel" configuration.
    () Works at least with SmartCover and back protector. There's a trade-off between holding the iPad securely and enabling the stand to work with a back protector/screen cover attached. But requiring that the iPad be "naked" for the stand to work is a dealbreaker for me.

    They do look cool, more artistic than what is already available. The price is certainly good. Very marketable. Good luck with your venture

    Thanks everyone! I got a bunch cut out...I have Ipad stands with the cut outs and solid....they are two flat pieces that interlock...it fits the Ipad in portrait or landscape...

    The Iphone stand is perfect but it only supports the phone in landscape mode.

    I'm working on getting good pictures for you guys
