The shape of SlingAmp pushes the concept of simplicity ahead of the curve.
Developed for hands-free use in all moments of daily lifestyle…at home or in the office. It can reduce potential iPad neck strain.
The stability of the stand is further enhanced by the placing the stand on the smart cover with magnetic end of iPad tablet.
It has a unique anti-gravity design which can support iPad units in two different positions. landscape or portrait…horizontal and vertical.
The U- shaped channel supports iPad in the vertical position, and amplifies sound from the speaker(s) located at the bottom.
The U-shaped channel supports iPad in the horizontal position, and redirects the sound around the listening area.
Sound waves are bounced back and forth between the smooth rear surface of iPad and curvaceous interior of the SlingAmp stand thereby enhancing the experience..
SlingAmp functions as a beautiful photo or clock/alarm stand.
SlingAmps are scheduled to be manufactured by a professional shop in the USA. Once funding goals are met, I will be in a position to finish the tooling and start production of SlingAmp units for the backers.
Prototypes have been produced and tested for the entire family of iPad tablets. Units are scheduled to be produced in the USA.
I am working closely with a well established shop in the USA. It is equipped to handle larger volumes.
The cost material and future backlog at the shop may affect the overall cost and schedule.
Introduction of significant changes in the design and specification of iPad may impact the functionality of the SlingAmp Antigravity Stand.
