Meet the Tstand: an ergonomic tablet stand

Couch

Everyone loves using their tablets whilst sitting on the couch or laying in bed, but sometimes it can get very uncomfortable having to hold the tablet for extended periods. This is where the Tstand could come in handy, with its reversible base and adjustable viewing angle, you can view the tablet hands and strain-free. Tstand has just launched its campaign on Kickstarter, with the goal of raising $10,000.

As you can see from the GIF above, the Tstand isn’t just for when you are laying around in bed, it really is quite versatile. It can be used as a workstation for your tablet, or for watching videos on the sofa, Skyping with the family or perhaps in the kitchen referring to a recipe whilst cooking. All the while reducing the strain on your wrists, hands, backs, and necks. In short, the Tstand is very ergonomic.

The Tstand is made from ABS plastic, silicon rubber and has a steel frame, weighing in at 1.25lbs (around 566 grams). The grippers fit all tablets from 7-inches up, and can even hold the recently launched Surface 13 (No doubt my editor, Justin will breathe a sigh of relief with that news) and Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro. So, if you were thinking of buying it as a gift, it doesn’t really matter what sort of tablet the recipient has, it will be compatible.
