Turn your iPad into a Shield

The Onhand X-Band from TKO Solutions is a holder for your iPad that consists of four leather corner loops that are connected to a neoprene and nylon X shaped strap. A user can slip their hand under the strap to give them an easier way to hold the iPad in one hand for presentations or demonstrations… or for playing knights of the round table. Get yours for $19.99.

    Bite your tongue, Julie! Use it as a shield!?! I’d take a bullet for my iPad! (Just kidding. I think…) ;o)

    Hey…we can now serve drinks using the iPad!

      @Rainydayinterns Yes! Or play ping pong and ratchet ball!

    Yikes! Of all the reasons I created the X-band, that was NOT one of them! But cheers for the creative thinking.

    Type iPad too heavy into a Google search field and you’ll see how 850,00+ people find the iPad too heavy.

    This device is a good start to fixing the problem. But I fear it isn’t enough for a full presentation.

    Also, it isn’t quite right for reading.

    I’ve been stuck in bed with a broken shoulder. And I agree that the iPad is too heavy for one-handed operation.

    The iPad is 1.5 pounds. Kindle DX is 1.2 pounds. But the Kindle 2 is .6 pounds — way lighter than the iPad and perfect for reading.

    For anyone who carries a computer or iPhone, the Kindle 2 is the better ebook reader.

    For someone who doesn’t want to carry a smartphone or computer, the iPad is a fair alternative. But still not a good idea for one-haded reading.
