Just in time for the new iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display, The Joy Factory has released an all-new line of carbon fiber mounting systems for just about any place you can imagine.
Keeping an iPad (of any size) handy isn’t all that hard, but keeping it useful in unusual situations like in a car or in a kitchen can be. I personally like to use my old generation one iPad in the kitchen as a mini-media center for TV and tunes and it’s not the easiest thanks to a really terrible old stand that I have it on.
That’s just the kind of situation that The Joy Factory has crafted its new line of mounts to remedy. With mounting solutions that can clamp onto a desk or table, affix to the back of a headrest in a vehicle, or bolt right into the wall and pivot an which way you may need; there’s something for pretty much anyone and any setup.
The full line is made from light-weight carbon fiber (which actually works to absorb movement and shaking, like in a car!) and is constructed with ball-joints and full arm-articulation. The Joy Factory also says that the mounts provide “an excellent strength-to-weight ratio to sturdily support the iPad”, yet remain light weight and easy to fold up for storage. Basically, that means you can view your iPad in either landscape or portrait modes and disconnect and store without an issue. Basically, these sound pretty great and if you’re in the market for a new clamp stand or wall-mount, you might want to have a look at what The Joy Factory has on hand.
