BRADA iPad stand

Materials: BRADA laptop support

Description: My husband and I both bought iPads but when they are flat against the table they are hard to read and use and have a tendency to get scratched on the back.

I saw the BRADA laptop support for AUD$10 in Ikea and it was an easy hack.

Cut it in half and voila! Two iPad stands!

    Ha! Thanks again Jen, for this great idea. I got one yesterday and cut it in half, my Dad’s now using one for his Nook e-reader and I’m going to use the other half for an iPad. And only less than $3 US for both. :)

    ANy ideas for one that sits on top of you in bed? It needs to be more upright and maybe on a cushion.

    The BRADA laptop support is available in the US, at least in many of the California stores.

    This is great! We don’t have this product in the US… just the BRADA hard-top pillow thing. I like this much better and it’s great for the iPad, I agree.

    I bet this could be used for a Kindle stand as well.
