SlashGear highlights a handy little device that will be useful to those who fly a lot, or generally to anyone that likes to rest their iPad on their knees. Itâ€™s called the AppStation, and comes from a company called New Sky Productions. Itâ€™s basically a kneeboard that holds you iPad securely to your knees using Velcro straps. The back of the kneeboard is constructed of polycarbonate, and is curved so that it fits the knees snugly. Itâ€™s also raised up at the top so that you donâ€™t have to lift your leg to tilt it towards you. The kneeboard also has standoffs built in at the corners so that your iPad wonâ€™t be scratched if you rest it face down (does anyone do that?). And thatâ€™s not all! Thereâ€™s even storage space for a stylus and a Mini Mag Light flashlight, or a pen or pencil.
According to SlashGear, the AppStation has also been designed with pilots in mind, to enable them to use apps while flying their aircraft. Maybe itâ€™s just me, but I find that a little alarming! I donâ€™t want to be on a plane where the pilot is playing Angry Birds at the same time!
You can order the AppStation for $69.95 from New Sky Products.
