If you're so rugged that you demand your technology is teamed with accessories that look like they should form part of an engine, I've just found you the perfect iPad stand. It even has a manly name: this is the Rokstand.
Hewn from raw blocks of 6061 T-6 Billet aluminium, the Rokstand is — you might want to sit down before I tell you this — made in the US. What's made in the US these days, eh?
Anyway, it's practically dripping in needless engineering: high-speed bearings, non-slip contact surface rings and strange little cam systems that provide six whole angles of adjustment. It is perhaps one of the most ludicrously over-designed products I have ever seen.
But, hey, I think we can be certain it will never break. It does, however, cost an eye-watering $US169.00. At that price, it better not break. [Rokform]
