“The Plinth isn’t just a super-compact tablet stand — it’s an amusing party trick.” So begins Lewis’ appraisal of the prototype Plinth sent to him during the kickstarter camapign.
“It’s obviously composed of multiple parts that fit together seamlessly, and a couple of buttons look like they might do something. But let a friend fondle the plastic object, and they’ll likely fiddle with it for a while before they discover the Plinth’s awesome secret. That’s so cool!” said my test subject when she finally figured out how to manipulate the Plinth’s sliding latch, which instantly unleashes the tablet holder’s spring-loaded arms. It’s not that the Plinth is difficult to deploy. In fact, once you figure out the Plinth’s trick, it’s incredibly simple (and switchblade-fast) to open.”
“And thank goodness for that, because the Plinth is a wonderful creation that makes any tablet (or a phablet or standard smartphone, for that matter) even more useful and enjoyable. The Plinth adjusts to five different angles, making it simple to look at your tablet hands-free and also takes much of the sting out of typing on a slate’s virtual keyboard.”
