Lying down and holding your iPad just plain sucks. In no way is it comfortable, and there are far too few solutions to alleviate the issue and prevent your arms from going numb. The Tablift aims to cure the problem, but if can only do so if it gets funded. Early birds can pledge $60 or more and secure a Tablift of their own, which is $30 cheaper than the planned retail price (which is way too expensive).
Pledge Goal: $20,000

While there are a number of stand solutions, and even stand-case solutions already out there in iPhone accessory land, but few look as good as idoStand. The case allows users to prop up their iPhone in landscape or portrait all with a minimalistic bumper design. Best part, these things aren’t that expensive. A pledge of $15 or more gets you an idoStand and a pledge of $28 or more gets you a two-pack. These things will retails for $40 once in the wild and the expensive stealth version pictured above will retail for $60 (made out of aircraft grade aluminum).
Momentum Precision Aluminum Case for iPhone
Pledge Goal: $8,000
Amount Raise: $660
Now, this is an IndieGoGo campaign, which is almost exactly like KickStarter, except that the project doesn’t need to reach its funding goal to get the money pledged. If they raise $300, the project receives that much minus IndieGoGo’s cut.
Anyway, the Momentum PRecision Aluminum Case is an aluminum bumper case with a slight twist, it doesn’t require screws to secure the case around the phone. Using a securing system dubbed “Fast Loc” the Momentum case can put on and taken off in seconds instead of minutes without fear of losing tiny, tiny screws. Pledges start at $40 and that secures you a case, and $50 snags you a custom two-color variant.
