The FACET Pyramid iPad Stand is yet another Kickstarter project that has grabbed my attention – as I really like the concept of this clever iPad stand:
Facet is a multi-angle magnetic iPad stand. Each side of the pyramid is a different angle: 35°, 55°, and 75°. When holding up an iPad, Facet is barely visible from the front. We also wanted Facet to be a sexy object on your desk when it’s not being used.
It’s compatible with the iPad 2 and the new 2012 iPad, and the embedded neodymium magnets are the same as those used in the Apple iPad Smart Cover.
Here are a couple more photos of the FACET stand – in use on a desk and in bed:
It probably won’t shock you to learn that I’ve backed this project on Kickstarter – to the tune of $30 so I’ll get a black one once the project gets funded. I think I’ve now backed at least three iPad stands on Kickstarter – I’m going to have start adding a line in my social network profiles: “Professional iPad stand Funder’. Seriously though, the FACET stand looks very promising to me and I’m excited to try one out.
The project still has a ways to go to meet its funding target, so if you think it looks good you may want to check out the Kickstarter project page for it (with a fun video demo and lots more details) and consider backing it.
