Tstand Review: a reimagining of tablet holding

This week we've been working with the Tstand, a tablet holder that'll allow you to use your tablet without cranking your neck or your knees. It's big.

The version we're working with is made mainly of ABS plastic, with silicone rubber bumpers to hold the tablet in place. This stand may look strange, but it might also be the tablet companion you didn't know you needed.
