Sleek, simple and elegant, the Horizon echoes the iPad it supports
Just Mobile, the folks behind the chinky Alupen iPad stylus and its accompanying orifice the AluCube, have come up with a handsome, minimal iPad wall mount.
It’s called the Horizon, and it looks like one. Unlike other iPad wall mounts, this one doesn’t require screwing a huge, dorky-looking saucer to the wall first. Instead, you hang a minimal aluminum bar. This bar has bevelled edges, and the main part of the stand slides over this and holds dovetails into place.
The front section is equally minimal, comprising a rubber-lined channel into which the iPad slides. Rubber linings are supplied for the iPads 1 and 2, and there’s a rubber nubbin front and center that will push the home button when you press it. There’s also a hole in the bottom of the u-section bracket through which the dock connecter will fit.
The Horizon goes for $50. I’d totally pay that if it also came with a big fat magnet to mount it on my fridge.
