The $79 Gorillamobile Ori takes its inspiration from origami. Folded up, it's a regular folio-style iPad case.
The Ori's panels are metal sheets with flexible joints and flip-down parts. Here it's in a semi-elevated lap-typing-friendly orientation.
Here it's bent back in a kitchen-friendly "sous chef" mode, the rear panel clicking into the base.
In fully extended "popcorn and movie" mode, the Ori's a tall monitor-stand, perfect for videos or monitor-style display. The iPad can swivel a full 360 degrees for portrait/landscape views, too.

The more affordable $49 Gorillamobile Yogi isn't a subway-friendly case, and it lacks a screen-protecting cover, but it's perfect as a superflexible stand. Or, for latching onto the back of your office cube.
The rear ball-jointed legs bend into an unlimited number of positions, much like its Gorillapod stand brethren.
Bent back into a reading-friendly mode.
Bent forward, for a picture-frame-style orientation.
The case works well flipped-over, too--the rubberized case and legs hold their positions on a table, like a tripod.
The twin segmented legs clip in either portrait or landscape orientations. It can be swapped without removing your iPad from the case.
Or, you can be ridiculous and wrap it around your arm to make the largest wristwatch in the world.
