We're breaking into the accessory industry by offering an iPad stand. The stand holds firm while using the touch screen and it adjusts to almost any angle.
Check it out and let us know what you think.

We are still in development, but production starts very soon. :comingsoon:

good rendering, and aluminum profiling .... but too simple and how to recharge or synch when you use it in vertical position ??

Looks like a revolutionary product. Not to mention the part where it will probably be simply modified to be compatible with many devices, now and the future.

The only thing that bugs me is the name... Ska_doosh_.. but the iPad also has a risky name, so far so good!

Make sure to market this! ;D

Wish you the best.

When you say rendering, do you mean a computer generated image? The pictures of the stand is an actual machined and tested stand. We just haven't started final production yet. The iPad, unfortunately, is only rendered.
Too simple? It holds the iPad and tilts. It's supposed to be simple. I hear what you're saying about the recharging and syncing. We have added a slot and a pocket to allow the connector to easily be set down into the stand. Once we get these ones rolling, we plan on developing new interchangable rockers, including one with a connector, but the problem is, if you place the iPad in horizontal you have a connector in the way. The interchangable rockers will be aroung $10 to $20 each (depending on their function).
No broken dreams here. Thanks for your thoughts.

I like it Hobbs! Looks very simple and attractive. I can imagine putting one of these on my bathroom counter so I can watch / listen to something when getting ready in the morning.

I know what you mean, as we are developing 60 products for iPad, and we have various stand and dock .... my 23 years experience in dev told me immediately the weak point, the concept is good just need some small improvement for made it useful :D

I would like a pivoting arm to hold my iPad. One like the document holders secretaries use when typing.

I'm stuck in bed with 7 fractures on my right ankle. Might have more surgery coming so i'll be here a long time.

A stand next to the bed would allow me to use it over my face when I'm on my back without having to hold the iPad...

Good luck

JADU - is your design correct?

Is it OK to hold the iPad at the bottom? Won't it put too much pressure on the bottom of iPad?

From the photo on your website it looks like the iPad will tumble as the center of gravity will overshoot the base area as the user tilts the iPad backwards (closer to horizontal surface).

The design of the stand is solid :)
The iPad is designed to be held by one hand while you use the other hand to control it, so the bezel area is very strong. I don't know if you have one, but if you hold the ipad at the bottom and lay it flat, there is no flex or undo stress on the ipad.
With the iPad in the stand reclined 60 degrees (the flattest it gets), and in portrait mode, you can tap the screen at the top and the stand doesn't budge. The flip out support has to be used when it is vertical. It works okay horizontally without the support, but it works best with it. We spent all weekend playing different games that required a lot of tapping and swiping and the Skadoosh stand worked very well.
We are sending many of them out to be reviewed in a week or so before production begins. So hopefully these concerns will be addressed objectively in the reviews.

Thanks

Pricing!! i like the look of it and appreciate the engineering. Now stop and get it to market. If you over-engineer it now, it raises your per unit cost, and reduces you ability to bring out different improved models later. Just need to know the price.

Price is the final decision maker for most people. You can always run a conservative introductory price to test the waters, then adjust depending on the response.

Great looking product. Slim/ or mill down the front a bit for a sleeker look and your good to go.
