The proliferation of tablets has spawned dozens of creative and cool stands for the reading-friendly mobile devices. It's time for tablets to take a stand!
This soft, pillow-like stand by Flazbag works much like the Mae West Lips Sofa by Salvador Dali; the tablet sits on the jutting lower lip.
A YouTube video by Maturine Deschain demonstrates how to turn a classic Mac into a tablet stand.
A 3D printer produced this PLA plastic universal tablet stand. The stand is also adjustable.
This lightweight stand is designed for a minimal footprint...or tailprint. Its aluminum fins and tail adjust to enable different viewing angles. The end of the tail also works as a handle.
The beautifully minimalistic Yohann iPad stand is the brainchild of Swiss designer Berend Frenzel.
The aptly named Breffo Spiderpodium has bendable legs. Use it as a stand, or wrap the legs around the back of a car seat to keep kids entertained on the road.
Speck's iGuy for iPad Mini tablets is both free-standing and durable. A soft foam construction means no more cracked iPads...and a lot of huggability.
A current media darling (Vogue, Vanity Fair, Wired) the "Venus of Cupertino" is another cool stand from London designer Scott Eaton.
Backed with felt and hand-crafted, the V-luxe is made in limited runs. The price tag: $1,500.
