This clever, portable stand meets you exactly where you are: 1) Standing, 2) Sitting, and 3) Typing. Adjustable legs allow you to configure the stand in these three modes, each improving viewing angle and height. All fits securely in a featherweight, aircraft-grade anodized aluminum tube for easy, everyday carry.

Inspired by the minimalist functional design of our previous Kickstarter hit, the VERSI Docker Stand, the 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand in a Tube is available in both laptop and tablet versions.

Fits 13", 15" 17" laptops including the new 11" MacBook Air.

 Studies show that sitting at work for extended periods of time can lead to severe health issues and decline in overall productivity.  Standing, for just thirty minutes each day, has been proven to combat these health concerns and boost energy levels and concentration during and after the workday.

"Today, our bodies are breaking down from obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, depression, and the cascade of health ills and everyday malaise that come from what scientists have named sitting disease.” ~ James Levine, MD, PhD

The stand allows you to raise your laptop to the proper viewing angle and height.

In the typing mode your laptop is elevated to keep your arms at 90 degrees and the the raised keyboard prevents slouching and back pain. It also allows air to flow under your laptop cooling it and preventing it from overheating.

The Laptop Version: Exceptionally lightweight 326 gr / 11.5 oz, 1.5 in. diameter. Choose from three models:

  • Model A - gives 20.32 cm /  8" height - support/storage tube is 30.48 cm / 12" long
  • Model B - gives 27.94 cm / 9.5" height - support/storage tube is 35.56 cm / 14" long
  • Model C - gives 30.48 cm / 11.5" height - support/storage tube is 40.64 cm / 16" long

What size should I order for my laptop in Stand Up Mode?

 The tablet version of the 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand has the three same modes as the laptop version standing, sitting & typing in landscape or portrait position.

Tablet version meets you exactly where you are - standing - sitting - typing - accommodating conveniently with or without a case.

The Tablet Version: Exceptionally lightweight at 204.12 gr / 7.2 oz. The anodized aluminum tube has a diameter of 3.81 cm / 1.5" and 24.13 cm / 10" in length.

 The 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand's portable design encourages you to take full advantage of your office or home workspace. It's the  perfect solution for people who are on the go and can be easily transported anywhere - think purse, backpack, briefcase.  Whether you're at the office or on the road, a healthy, lightweight  mobile workstation is always at your fingertips.

  At $35, the 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand costs a fraction of most standing desks and with the 3 in 1 design, you're getting three stand options in one.

 Stable across all work surfaces:  The 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand provides a sturdy working surface for your tablet or laptop.  The tube is made out of aircraft grade anodized aluminum and the legs are made out of high tensile strength fiberglass. It's hard to tip over and your tablet and laptop are protected by cushioned rubber grips that hold your device in place.

 You're probably wondering how something that weighs less than a pound be so strong? Well it happens that the tensile strength of the fiberglass rods are extremely strong.  So strong that we put a concrete block on it, it didn't budge and it would take two more easily. The typical laptop weighs in at around 3.5 pounds and the concrete block weighs approximately 34 pounds!

 We believe in creating products and sourcing parts that are made in the USA.  We find the US products are far superior in quality than those that are massed produced in most other countries.  By making this in California we not only hire people and contribute to the local economy, but also we can have control of the building and delivery process.



Use of Funds:

We use off the shelf off-white high tensile strength fiberglass rods for prototype.  If funded, we would procure customized black fiberglass rods for production.  In order to do this, we will require to purchase custom quantities.

Also, we will use funds to purchase the remainder of materials and fasteners.

Risks and challenges

If there weren't any risks, it wouldn't be novel, original or any fun.

Moving from prototype to production is rarely easy but having the experience of bringing projects to production is not new to me. Doing this for the first time is always filled with unknowns, fortunately this is not my rodeo. I have built trust over the last 30 years working with reliable partners that deliver. We would rather have the chance to deliver your 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand earlier rather than later - just as we did with our Lumia Lamp and Franken Edison Light & VERSI Stand.

I am targeting delivery for April 2015 which allows us some time from when the project ends, funds are delivered and components ordered. I'd rather be honest from the start rather than annoying everyone with delays.

There might be slight design changes of which I will inform you. The only design change at this time would be to change the rods from off white to black. I think this will match the aesthetics of the anodized aluminum and black eyelets.

If you're in doubt drop me an email, I'll answer your questions.
