A stand that towers over others

When you read the specifications of this next product, you might think you are reading an automotive blog, but the iPad Butler (http://ipad-butler.com) is an iPad table and floor stand that shares many high tech features with premium sports cars. Carbon fiber, German engineering, aluminum structure... There are even vehicle accessories including both a headrest and a lighter adapter for mounting the iPad inside your car.

I had the opportunity to use the floor stand version at a trade show and it was very useful. The iPad is displayed at a comfortable height and the significant weight of the stand and base give you confidence that the iPad isn't going anywhere. Indeed the iPad 'screws' in using an included Allen wrench and you can display in portrait or landscape mode.

The iPad Butler is a solid piece of German engineering, and should keep your iPad safe in your corporate lobby, trade show booth, or even vehicle!
