iPad stands are excellent for holding your iPad up against a flat surface when you’re making a recipe, watching a show on Hulu or FaceTiming with a friend, but stands are limited to tables and counters. Have you ever wanted to mount your iPad onto the wall to watch your shows or maybe on your desk for Skype. Well now you can with MagBak. MagBak, brought to you by Alex Baca and 1Lss Inc., is the very creative iPad mount that allows you to put the iPad on virtually any surface (metal and non-metal).
MagBak is made of soft silicone and attaches your iPad to any metal surface (refrigerator door, whiteboard, filing cabinet). For non-metal surfaces, there is MagStick. Using double-sided tape supplied by 3M, MagStick works on any non-metal surface, like in your car, on cabinets and furniture.
MagBak not only allows you to mount your iPad anywhere, but it provides an excellent grip, protects the back and keeps the Smart Cover in place. This product works specifically with the iPad mini and iPad Air.
I love my iPad, but my problem is that is does not stand up by itself. I purchased the Smart Case, which works well, but if I am on an uneven surface (like my bed) I have to move pillows around to get the iPad in the perfect position. The MagBack would allow me to attach my iPad to the wall and become like a mini HDTV. I can see even more uses, then just watching TV. This would be great for watching videos in the kitchen while making a recipe, getting directions in the car from Siri and doubling as picture frame on the wall.
The MagBack team has already received all its funding with 28 days to go. If you are interested and would like to purchase one, a pledge of $34 gets you one MagBack and one MacStick (if you share with friends, you get a second MagStick free). For more information, check out their Kickstarter page and be sure to pledge before April 17.
