Matias unveils iFold
Matias today announced a new laptop stand that it calls the iFold. Featuring a completely modular design that can be folded flat for easy portability, and made from a combination of black acryllic and zinc alloy, the stand is designed to increase work comfort without compromising portability. By using an external mouse and keyboard in combination with the iFold, users can view their laptop screen without having to crane their necks in an awkward position, or without affecting how they sit. The iFold is available from a number of suppliers, as well as directly from Matias itself for $60.
"With laptops out-selling desktops, the landscape has really changed," claims Matias Marketing Director, Vesna Vojnic. "Lots of problems that were solved in the desktop era are now reappearing. For example, displays are too low, so people are getting neck pain from looking down. Laptop keyboards are cramped and lack a number pad. Most of the products out now are not portable. In the coming weeks, Matiaswill be offering solutions to all these new problems."
