iPad Stand Concept and Prototype

by: modgrain

A new product prototype in the works! I’ve been asked by Wodclub to design a custom iPad stand or dock. Something made out of wood vs. the standard, plastic/rubber stands that are commonly used with iPhones and iPods. My client wanted something a little more urban and environmentally friendly. Below is a quick sample drawing of where I’m headed with the design. The “X” shape is inspired by “Crossfit”. The stand must do two things…hang from a wall or sit on a desk or common area throughout Crossfit Gyms. Trainers need easy access so they can record a members time or load quickly and efficiently into the Wodclub’s Crossfit workout tracker. The design also allows a trainer to grab the iPad from any of the four sides of the stand. If you’re spending $500 for a iPad, it makes sense to have a safe place to set it!

I’m working on a variety of ways to put this together, including laser cutting the back and designing an aluminum bracket that will attach to a wall or sit on a desk. Stay tuned for updates.

    I can probably figure something out… I would need specific information about the mic stand that you need to attach it to. And, check out what I have done for another client that needed a way prevent the iPad from easy removal or accidental bumps. This idea along with a way to attach to the mic stand might work well for you! You can use my contact form if you are interested in discussing more. Thanks.
