When I saw the iPadFlex from UZBL (as in usable) at MacWorld, I wasn't sure what to make of it. Is it an iPad case, a stand, a handle, a tripod, a suction mount, or a carrying strap? The answer is, all of the above. You can add and subtract elements to make your iPadFlex perform exactly as you wish!
I had been walking around MacWorld, wearing my iPad in a case from ModulR, running a 'nametag' app, and getting a lot of positive reaction. But this iPadFlex will do the job and provide protection and comfort at the same time.
The iPadFlex is a Kickstarter project so there is time to buy one at investor pricing and help influence a cool product. I went from not knowing what the heck this thing was to buying the high-end configuration on Kickstarter! You get a lot with that configuration, so it's really a good deal at $60. You get the undercover frame, a protective silicon skin, a padded shoulder strap, a comfortable hand strap, a quick release pivoting tripod, a suction based monopod mount, and a flexible Joby GorillaPod tripod.
That's a lot of gear for one reasonable price, but after the Kickstarter project is funded, expect prices to go up. Details at http://www.iPadFlex.com.
