tstand

You and your tablet are inseparable, but extended use can lead to poor posture or tired arms. Enter industrial design engineer Sean Kieley, owner of Montreal company Surface.ID. He created the Tstand, a lightweight portable stand that makes it easy to use your tablet while travelling, working and relaxing.

The Tstand weighs little more than half a kilogram and collapses to 8 centimetres to store into a computer bag, satchel or seatback. It's a simple design with just two major parts: the tablet holder and the reversible base. The grip is rubberized so when a tablet is placed into the retractable claw, it won't slide out.

Watching movies in the back seat is stress-free because you don't have to hold the tablet up or bend your neck. Instead, the Tstand holds the tablet at a comfortable eye level. For young children, it can be straightened to slide into the pocket of the seat in front of them.

Sit at a table to read and it rests at the perfect height above your plate to keep your posture correct. Fold it in the reverse direction, stretch out on the sofa and it will gently hug your tummy, leaving both hands free for popcorn.
