I've written about the Octa before, so I was interested to see what they had to offer at CES. The 'suction cup on steroids' is a pump-to-stick grip for your iPad or just about any tablet with a non-porous flat back. You twist-on a 'tail' depending on your need.
When the Octa first shipped, it offered just one tail, a whale-like flexible fin that could be used as a stand or as a grip.
Octa is now offering a Monkey Kit version with a long, flexible yet sturdy tail. With the monkey tail, you can wrap the Octa around a bedpost, arm of a chair, etc. Your imagination is the only limitation.
I found the Octa offered another advantage. When the iPad mini came out and nobody had yet released a case with a built in stand, the Octa worked fine!
The Monkey Tail is on Kickstarter and has already surpassed its funding goals. But this is a chance to get a novel accessory at an early bird price.
