Tuesday, March 29th, 2011 - MacSense Australia Pty Ltd
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - MacSense Australia Pty Ltd announced today the release of the iRest lap stand for Apple iPad and iPad 2 in Australia. The iRest is the first tablet stand designed specifically for use on the lap. It frees your hand for a comfortable viewing and typing experience away from the desk.

Beneath the simplicity of the patent pending design, the iRest actually masks a few industrial breakthroughs. It is exceptionally light weight at only 15 oz. The ingenuity is creating a design that avoided the use of extrusion manufacturing technique and thus more than halving the aluminum thickness to only 1/16 of an inch (1.5mm). The iRest also features soft foam cushions that rest on the lap and a torque hinge that makes it easy to adjust the angle up to 60 degrees. It improves your ergonomics by preventing hand fatigue from holding the iPad and raising the screen for easier viewing.

“The beauty of the iRest is its functionality and form,” says Aven Koh, Vice President of Rain Design. “It makes using the iPad on your lap so much more comfortable and enjoyable whether you’re on a couch or on a plane.”

Versatility and Portability
The iRest also functions as a stunning and stable desktop stand. The cushions can be detached to reduce its footprint in desktop mode. The stand folds flat for portability and storage.

The stand has cutouts for the dock connector and speaker, and can accommodate regular iPad cases. Generous padding keeps the iPad safe from scratches.

The iRest works with the iPad and tablets with a thickness less than 0.47 inches (1.2 cm).

The iRest lap stand won Best of Show 2011 at this years Macworld in San Francisco.
