Kickstarter is a great way to go if you’re looking to get an idea off the round. In fact, just a few days ago we told you about Salman Paracha of Meglio and how they needed $15,000 to kick-start their multipurpose handle slash stand for iPad.
This week, there’s a new project vying for your generous donations. It’s called Hanfree. Designed by Seth Quest, and just as it sounds, Hanfree is a hands-free, adaptable stand designed for your iPad. Held up by a modern, white, acrylic base, and made adjustable via its bendable stainless steel neck, Hansfree aims to let you get on with doing whatever it is you’re doing while using iPad.
Hanfree is an amazing new way to experience the iPad & iPad 2. We created Hanfree because we LOVE the iPad, but found it tiresome to hold in bed.
The iPad’s new camera allows face to face calling. Wouldn’t it be awesome to Skype while lying in bed? Imagine the iPad floating effortlessly above you in the perfect position, and making a call to your lover, totally relaxed, hands free…
Hanfree is lightweight, and easy to move around the house.hanfree on bed. It’s not necessary to have a huge loft, Hanfree will work in any home. Hanfree makes it easier to use cooking apps when in the kitchen. The three main parts: clear case, stainless steel neck, white acrylic base. The case allows you to simply snap the iPad into place and fits the iPad securely. It has an integrated ball and socket joint which allows 360 degrees rotation, which makes it easy to switch from landscape or portrait modes.
The base is light weight and very stable, it’s slim profile was designed to be unobtrusive when using it with pillows in bed. We designed all of the corners to be rounded to make it kid friendly, while also eliminating snagging on sheets.
The neck is constructed from durable stainless steel. We made more than twenty prototypes to find the optimal curve and ideal height to place the iPad in the most ergonomic viewing position. The neck can pivot to the side, allowing you to swing it out of the way when you are getting in and out of bed.
So far, the project has raised $3,107 of its $15,000 goal, with 53 days to go.[Kickstarter via MacStories]
