Surfing the web or watching a movie on an iPad is very cool. What’s not so cool is trying to do either of those things comfortably. BulletTrain is making the experience a bit more magical with its new MagicStand.
This handy little add-on could really change your iPad experiences for the better. It gives the iPad a leg up—a little aluminum one, anyway. The stand is virtually invisible behind the iPad, but can go from 0 to 90 degrees, depending on how you like to type or view content. It can also do both portrait and landscape positions.
If you’re favorite iPad position is elevated, the MagicStand can do that as well. The back features a cutout, which makes hanging the MagicStand very easy.
Having a stand makes incorporating the iPad into your day-to-day more doable. The MagicStand allows you to prop up the tablet next to any computer for a second screen option. That means while you work, you can also keep constant tabs on Twitter or watch TV shows and movies. Productive? Maybe not, but we can’t say this doesn’t make you into a multitasker.
Currently, the MagicStand is only available on the BulletTrain website. Expect to pay $99.
