This is the Elastick. See if you can guess what it does
The object you see above is a strap-on. A strap-on stand for the iPad, that is. Here it is in action:
It’s called the Elastick, and is an iPad stand for musicians. The four loops hook around the corners of the tablet and the phallic proboscis will either support it like a kickstand, or slot into any microphone holder you might find on stage. This is smart, as history has already design a mic stand to fit pretty much any situation.
The Elastick isn’t limited to the iPad, either, or even just tablets in general. Anything that has four corners and is big enough to stretch the straps can be stuck in there. The stick is made from black ABS plastic, and the straps from silicone.
As you may have already guessed, the Elastick is a Kickstarter project. The minimum pitch that will get you a unit is $40, going up to $50 at retail.
If it makes it to production, that is: Judging by the horrible sound quality on the pitch video, and the lack of punctuation and even correct spelling on the Kickstarter page, it doesn’t look like the designers pay much attention to detail. Still, now the idea is out there you could always take a trip to your local adult toy store and pick up another kind of strap-on to do the job.
