It may sound like a joke, but we’re not pulling your leg here — Tabzu wants to be the first iPad case on the market with a built-in leg stand. Are you guilty of balancing your expensive tablet precariously on your lap? Tabzu may be just the iPad accessory you’re looking for. Once it’s clamped to your leg (or the arm of your sofa), Tabzu’s rubber legs make sure your iPad stays put, whether you’re in a three piece suit or your bathrobe.
Though Tabzu’s creators hail from Hollywood, where they both have the enviable job of creating special effects for movies and TV (Coraline, The Lord of the Rings, Mythbusters) they have tried to make an iPad accessory that suits a wide range of users. Not only does the Tabzu work well on a variety of surfaces, the user can switch its clip configuration to work with different sized devices.
Kickstarter backers embraced Tabzu, and the project is fully already fully funded.
Even if you don’t plan to use your iPad while standing, Tabzu still offers a number of perks.
Tabzu sports a modernist design, and it works as an iPad stand and case. Form meets not only function, but eco-responsibility with Tabzu. Although it’s way too pretty to wind up in a landfill, Tabzu is constructed from a proprietary water-resistant recyclable composite.
The case even swivels 360 degrees, so it’s easy to share screen content with others.
Not only is Tabzu practical, it’s also personal. A user can choose from a variety limited-edition artwork to express her style.
The good news: Tabzu is funded, so interested backers can pledge safe in the knowledge that Tabzu will be created. Backers who pledge $30 will receive a Classic Tabzu by December 2012.
The bad news: the funding period ends Sunday October 28, 2012, so if you want a Tabzu of your own, don’t delay your order.
