About this project
Thank you for checking out our iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad stand that’s good in bed!
We call it the LaziWedge, It’s a lightweight, stable, hands free stand for your mobile devices. http://www.mobilepadcloud.com
What is the LaziWedge?
Tennis elbow and the iPhone don’t mix, so I came up with an apparatus to hold my iPhone vertically or horizontally, on my lap, in bed or on my desk, without holding it in my hands, straining my wrists, elbows or arms.
The LaziWedge is a lightweight, stable and hands free way to hold your mobile devices.
How does the LaziWedge Work?
The LaziWedge (formerly the Mobile Pad Cloud) is a triangle with a cavity on two sides, one vertical, one horizontal. You choose which cavity to sink your device into; horizontal to view Netflix Watch Instantly or Vertical to play Sudoku. You can even use it with a friend at a coffee shop; one device in each cavity!
Most iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad stands on the market are cold, hard and tippy and not very good in bed. The Mobile Pad Cloud is lightweight, stable and very good in bed!
Why own a LaziWedge?
Now more than ever people are using their mobile devices for extended periods of time. Most people use their mobile device of choice while watching T.V. Most of us are never too far from our favorite mobile device and that need is taking a toll on our bodies.
The LaziWedge is not only fun but practical too. There are many physical therapy applications.
Currently the LaziWedge prototype is made of grey, open cell foam. Our goal is to have a mold made for 2 sizes of popular mobile devices; the iPad (including the iPad 2) and iPhone (including the iPhone 5), and to make the LaziWedge from a pliable, colorful, foam similar to a “stress” ball. Your pledge will get us started with molds and tooling.
Pledges will provide us the ability to order at least 1 (hopefully 2) sizes of popular mobile device molds in a stress ball type foam. Our first mold will be for the iPad and iPad 2 (If Apple comes out with a 7" iPad that may have to wait. From everything I hear Apple will not be doing a 7" iPad and the iPad 2 will be thinner but that will not effect how the iPad 2 fits in the LaziWedge).
There are also plans in the works to make the LaziWedge of beach ball material so you could blow up and let out the air of a LaziWedge on the road!
With a choice of multiple colors, potential branding, logo, and promotional advertising (businesses could stamp their logo on our foam) and plenty of new mobile devices coming on the market there is a long future for the LaziWedge!
In order to get the LaziWedge to market made from the best materials available we need to have molds made for at least 2 different popular mobile device sizes (i.e. iPhone, iPad, Kindle, or Zoom tablet etc.) and with minimum orders that’s a lot of money just to get the first run close to manufactured.
Our plea to you,
We need your help. Our friends, family and some complete strangers from all over the world love the LaziWedge in it's current incarnation (open cell foam). It crosses the generations; children to senior citizens use the LaziWedge with equal joy. We also see a helpful market in physical therapy applications. We need your help to have the LaziWedge made in the next level of foam.
Upgrading the material the LaziWedge is made of will greatly increase market share.
