Rain Design unveiled the iRest stand for Apple iPad, winning a Best of Show award at the recent Macworld Expo 2011. It is the first tablet stand designed specifically for use on the lap to free your hand for a comfortable viewing and typing experience on the couch. The iRest stand is available now.
# Versatility and Portability
The iRest also functions as a stunning and stable desktop stand. The cushions can be detached to reduce its footprint in desktop mode. The stand folds flat for portability and storage.
# The stand has cutouts for the dock connector and speaker, and can accommodate regular iPad cases. Generous padding keeps the iPad safe from scratches.
The iRest works with the iPad and tablets with a thickness less than 0.47 inches (1.2 cm).
