Tablift - Using your tablet in bed or on the couch is less than ideal for viewing—not to mention uncomfortable. But we all try to do it anyway. Tablift holds your tablet for you, safely mounting it on top of bendy legs that stay stable on uneven surfaces. Your tablet fits in the tray and is secured by a bungeed clip. Adjust the legs to whatever height is ideal. It’s that easy—your tablet is elevated to eye level, and you’re ready to relax without holding it awkwardly or cramping your neck. $39.95 https://www.thegrommet.com/tech-gadgets/tablift
