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!

Cardboard Safari's stand for the iPad is inspired by '50s-era televisions.

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.

Backed with felt and hand-crafted, the V-luxe is made in limited runs. The price tag: $1,500.
The "Dock of Science" is both a stand and a charger. And, yep, that's a working radiometer on there.
