The WINGStand Clamps Your iPad to Your Wireless Keyboard And Turns It Into A Laptop

By

The WINGStand has to be one of the nicest accessories for an iOS device I’ve seen for some time. It takes your iPad or your iPhone and marries it to your Apple wireless keyboard with two simple plastic clamps to provide you with the most comfortable typing experience.

The WINGStand is a Kickstarter project that uses two injection-moulded clips made from recycled plastic. They fix to your battery compartment at the rear of your Apple wireless keyboard, and then to your iPad, iPad 2 or iPhone 4 — in either landscape or portrait orientations. Because both clips are separate, you simple slide them together to accommodate the size of your device.

The WINGStand is just $20, which makes for an incredibly cheap alternative to Apple’s iPad keyboard dock that holds a price tag of $69. If you use Apple’s wireless keyboard to do any kind of writing with your iOS device, the WINGStand looks to be the ultimate accessory.

    I just p a i d $21.87 for an i P a d 2-64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasonîc Lumîx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS.I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.

    Check out this other Kickstarter Campaign for iOS devices that has raised over $1,000 in the first 3 days. It’s a Text-to-Speech (Read Aloud) web browser that gives the web a voice by combining Safari and the iPod.

    Very neat.  I think I might even buy this. 

    Edit: No go. I tried to buy it and you have to pay through Amazon (dot) com

    I hate Amazon, there is no way I’m giving those guys any of my info. Hugely disappointing that one can’t simply pay with PayPal or even a credit card.

    If the inventors are listening, you are losing a bunch of business by doing the Amazon thing.

    They may lose your business, but you’re in the minority – most people have no problem with Amazon. They also get a lot more visibility than they would if they were just selling direct. That being said, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t at least have a Paypal option, in addition to the Amazon one.

    Just backed it.

    Wait, I can use my Mac keyboard with my iPod Touch?!?

    A lot of countries can’t do Amazon also.

    My issue with this thing is that if you have a SmartCover and an Apple Wireless keyboard, you don’t need this. You can simply set up the iPad in the movie viewing position and then bring up the keyboard as close or as far away as you like.

    simple but smart idea!

    A bit over priced imo. It’s also made for pc’s so the price should be half that.

  17. mixter504 says:

    I agree with @Cold_dead_fingers:disqus  chances are if you have an ipad, iphone or any tablet for that matter, you are going to get a protective cover for your device. That makes this item useless. Plus the price is outrageous for two pieces of plastic. Knock offs, will soon follow at a fraction of the cost.

    Sounds to be a good option but I do think that it is over priced .. If it comes in between $10 to $15, I might get one for myself..
