TWELVE SOUTH HOVER BAR
The Hover Bar by TwelveSouth is an excellent piece of kit to add to your iPad accessories collection and increases the effectiveness of your expensive tablets when working on your desktop computer. In conjunction with your computer, the HoverBar allows your iPad to act as a second or even a third screen. The iPad has proven its position as the outstanding piece of technology of the last five years, but often find itself restricted in the fact that it needed to be handheld at all times. Then along came some stands, most of them flimsy, most not at all up to the task. Many ended up using the desk real estate when that was needed for other items or documents. The crew at TwelveSouth saw this as an opportunity and developed the HoverBar for the iPad. And now we all can benefit!
An extremely well made and manufactured piece of kit, the HoverBar is a 45cm rigid but flexible are, with a clamp at one end and a bas socket at the other. Once fixed to the screen, table or other suitable mount using the extremely durable clamp, the iPad Bracket can be attached to the socket and fixed into position. Due to the high quality materials, the iPad can be very rigidly placed in the appropriate position for user to interact with the iPad. This can then be readjusted as the user needs allowing complete flexibility (pardon the pun) in its use. The HoverBar is not inexpensive – costing £70 – so choosing it should be more of an investment than a whim. But having used it for a few weeks we can highly recommend it to i-Drills users wanting to put their iPads to further use. Get it here or via the Apple Store
