Spiderpodium tablet, by Breffo

This flexible tablet stand is designed to fit tablets like the iPad or Android tablets - it has eight flexible legs that can be bent into numerous positions to create the position or angle you desire. The "toes" of the device wrap around tightly to the edges of the tablet, and the legs are strong enough to support the weight of the device. Don't throw out the back of the box, because it shows you a number of different options on ways to bend the spiderpodium in order to get the desired angle/position. It also showed how you can use this to mount an iPad on the back of a car seat, making it a handy frame for letting the kids watch stuff on your tablet during long car trips. It can also be used at the front of the device, if you want to use your iPad for GPS functionality, just mount it to the dashboard. Figuring out which legs to use can take a bit of practice, but after you get used to it you'll be amazed at how many different uses you can get out of it.
