About this project
Imagine holding your iPad like your iPhone! Comfortably and securely in the palm of your hand. Better yet, confidently lay it on almost any surface at that perfect angle for extended productivity.
Thanks for checking out our project! My name is Salman Paracha and I am the creator and entrepreneur behind Meglio, the first of its kind ergonomic handle and stand that helps you comfortably and securely enjoy your iPad. We like to believe that Meglio is a hand-held ergonomic revolution! Check out the Meglio FAQ for questions that you may have.
The iPad is without a grain of doubt, one of the most remarkable innovations of our time. The tablet that powers millions of work and personal lives. But, the iPad is fairly large for a hand held device, which makes it hard to comfortably or securely hold it, creating for what is known as the pinch grip in ergonomic speak.
Knowing that Apple's minimalist design methodology would never allow for an external contraption. We set out to make the Meglio, an ergonomic way by which you can hold your iPad securely and comfortably. And, an equally transformative way that allows for hands-free enjoyment of your iPad, whether it's making your iPad sit on your coffee table or confidently on your lap!
Ergonomically fueled design
Meglio's design is inspired by the ergonomics found in computer mice, and borrows from Apple's minimalist design methodology: A smooth concave bulge that contours to shape of your palm and makes holding the iPad in your hand most comfortable
It's all in the bend
The malleable arm of the Meglio was precision engineered with a specially fabricated carbon steel to be bent to create for a snug and secure hold in your hand, while transforming your Meglio into a stand for your coffee table or what we like best, a stand for your lap!! Make sure to check out the video to see this in action.
Experience the iPad in a whole new light
While securely holding your iPad, you can seamlessly flip iPad's orientation without having to release the secure and comfortable hold on the iPad.Flipping may become an addiction, you have been warned. And with designing low profile symmetrical bumper cases, we also give you the option to protect your precious iPad from dings and scratches.
We are very close in realizing our dream and making mobile lives more comfortable. But, mass producing and distributing a new product is very expensive, especially for independent entrepreneurs, who don't have the resources or the option to fail. Plus, the funds would put us in a good standing to design and release the Meglio for the iPad 2
So, here is where you come in. Help fund the project (and an entrepreneur's dream) and be the first to receive the Meglio. If you don't have an iPad, we are sure you know someone who does, so spread the love and get them a very unique and useful gift.
We hope that you are inspired and excited by the idea and choose to support the project. Either way please spread the word and share with your friends.
