“I thought I wanted to be an inventor but then discovered you couldn’t study inventing!”
Tablift is a tablet stand that works in a bed, on a sofa, or any uneven surface. Its patented design works with almost any tablet (if a case is used, it must be less than 10mm thick).
The stand is great for binge watching in your most comfortable places. Its flexible positioning can help reduce eye and neck strain. Because it enables hands-free viewing, it can limit arm strain as well as enable viewing recipes in the kitchen.
Tablift is lightweight (2.5 lbs.) and small enough to pack into your luggage. Its flexible legs fold to compact size.
The tablet holder sells for $39.99 online.
OneClock is designed to wake you softly and comfortably, with original recordings not available elsewhere that gently increase in volume. There is no Bluetooth, WiFi, apps or connectivity.
The music features Jon Natchez, renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist of The War on Drugs. When OneClock’s alarm is activated, its AI music generator randomly chooses one of the songs stored in the clock’s solid-state memory and remixes it by adjusting the levels of each instrument or vocal for infinite combinations. You never hear the songs the same way twice.
The clock’s retro analog design makes it an art piece as well. It will retail for $350, with shipping for crowdfunding Rewards backers set for May.
