Matias iRizer, MiniRizer
Premium accessory manufacturer Matias recently unveiled the iRizer, a flat-folding, adjustable laptop stand. The iRizer is constructed from acrylic plastic, and can hold a laptop at angles between 20- and 50-degrees. Matias advertises that the stand can be used without an external keyboard - usually the height and orientation of the laptop on a stand can prevent comfortable typing - as the iRizer puts the built-in keyboard at a more acceptable angle, allowing users to sit back in their chair, as recommended by most ergonomists. Matias is currently shipping the iRizer for $40.
The iRizer folds flat for easy portability, being only 14 millimeters tall when folded. Matias also includes a MiniRizer - the company's credit card-sized version of the iRizer - that can be used for iPods, cell phones, PDAs, business cards, or pretty much any small object.
