Why The Ridge Stand Plus

Let’s face it, moving from the Mac desktop to a lower MacBook can be a pain in the neck. And cranking your neck to use an iPad can be even more of a pain. As these electronic devices become smaller and smaller, the viewing angle for them becomes lower and lower. As we lean further and further forward to see the screen our necks – and soon our backs – become more and susceptible to pain. And, slumping over to read and text for hours on a tiny phone – ouch!

We designed our stand so you can easily lift and angle your MacBook or iPad up to the exact angle you need to assure your body’s comfort. With an eye-level screen and external keyboard and mouse, your posture improves. When your neck and back feel relaxed, you can enjoy the task at hand and safely use your device longer.

The Ridge Stand Pro+, when used as an upright stand, can provide MORE useable desk space and raise your screen up to 20cm, allowing you to stay organized and more productive. When used as a normal stand, it can also raise your screen up to 12cm!

It’s Portable

So light to carry and simple to set up, our Ridge Laptop Stand is a breeze to use.

With its elegant stream-lined design, The Ridge Stand Pro+ for the MacBook makes it easy to set up your laptop for comfort at home, office, or out of town.

The Ridge Stand Pro+ is fashioned for the MacBook. The Pro+ is wider, more stable, and able to withstand the greater weight of a laptop. The design of The Ridge Stand Pro+ encourages you to protect your neck and back with a healthy posture as you work, play, and interact with the world.

Smaller and lighter, you can easily use The Ridge Stand+ wherever life with the IPad takes you.

Extremely light and small, The Ridge Mini, is the take-me-everywhere Ridge Stand for the phone.

The Ridge Stand Mini is a small stand designed for phones. The Mini is ideal for holding a phone up to the perfect angle to allow you to comfortably watch videos, scan the news, chat with friends live and take selfie photos and videos.

All models are perfect for students, designers, photographers, salespeople . . . anyone creating, managing, and sharing information on the go.

The Ridge Stand Plus helps productivity soar.

Build-in cable organizer

The Ridge Stand not only prevents stress on your neck and back, it removes the distracting jumble of wires with a built-in organizer.

Raised above your desk or table, the Ridge Stand also protects your device from accidental spills.

And, it’s open, lifted design allows for increased airflow that makes your electronic devices operate more efficiently.

Space Age Material

Wider and more stable base

How does our stand provide such secure and flexible support for your device, yet remain small and light? It’s the aerospace grade aluminum.

This powerful hinge allows all our stands to be adjusted and readjusted to any angle – that means the screen meets your eye level and puts your neck and back the most at ease.

Rest assured that our Ridge Stands won’t slip, thanks to a silicone pad that is skid proof and protective of your devices stability. This is critical when you are setting up your temporary work space on a restaurant table, on a bench in a bustling construction site, or on a desk in an active classroom.

Polyurethane, a re-usable, non-adhesive yet sticky covering, helps even the larger MacBook stay put without slipping or tipping backward. See Update #5 for more details!

Not only have we chosen stellar materials but we artfully fashion them to build the Ridge Stand. The Ridge Stand’s sleek space age design engenders an airy aesthetic that can even make an ordinary cubical feel serene and uplifting.

Versatile

Silicone assures your MacBook/ keyboard and iPhone are slip free. Watch videos comfortably with adjustable phone stand.

Color options

Our twilight colors complement the airy style of our stand and work with any decor.

Our Plan

We have launched The Ridge Stand generation one on Kickstarter by 2014 and now we are seeking funding to produce a bulk order of The Ridge Stand+ products so we can reduce unit cost and ship them at once.

Timeline: 

  • Feb - Apr: Crowdfunding on Kickstarter
  • Apr - May: Collecting surveys, manufacturing
  • May - Jun: Packaging, sending out reward

A Little Goes a Long Ways: As a team looking at Kickstarter, we realize that even a small level of support can make for a BIG DIFFERENCE in helping us reach our funding goal. We appreciate you reaching out to show support and help us take our new product to market for the first time ever...

Risks and challenges

We are an established firm with six years of industrial design experience. We have experience designing, producing, and bringing to market accessories for the Apple family of products, including the first Ridge Stand. Our manufacturer has already produced samples of the Ridge Stand+, Pro+, and Mini and is set to go.
