How do you get the simplest solution to a problem?
Ask a kid!
Ellie Jane's grandmother had a problem. She
couldn’t easily read on her iPad and keep it at a comfortable
angle. An angle that enabled her to get an optimal view of the screen without
13 year old Ellie did some research and found that
there were stands on the market but that they did not do the job well enough.
So she got out her mother’s sewing machine and
invented her own!
padpodTM was born.
Her Nana was delighted and now finds her padpodTM
indispensable. Ellie was soon very busy making padpodTM because everyone else in
the family wanted one too. And then all their friends. So it was decided to commercialise
padpodTM and manufacture professionally.
Ellie's pyramid-shaped bean bag is stable on your
lap, when you are lying in bed or when it is placed on a table or desk. Your iPad,
Kindle, smartphone or whatever can be placed on it at any angle that is
comfortable. It can be used at work or at home, in bed, in a plane in a car -
Ellie's Mum, Jenny, is an occupational therapist,
so she helped Ellie refine the design of the
padpodTM to the highest standards of
comfort and safety.
The weight of your iPad, or whatever other item you
are using, holds it in place on your
padpodTM naturally. There is no need for
straps or sleeves, clips or adhesives. You can use your
padpodTM to hold anything – your iPad,
Kindle, smartphone, cookbooks in the kitchen or a novel in bed. Ellie’s family even admits to using one
as a pillow in the car and they are great on planes too.
Simple, elegant and effective. Designed for
