The Slope iPad stand allows your iPad to be used similar to a laptop adding just the right angle for work. What makes this stand unique is the suction technology. It has two pads that are comprised of a special make of Nanofoam that is laden with thousands of microscopic air pockets across its surface that acts as tiny suction cups. When you press it against a flat surface the Nanofoam forces the air out of the pockets to create a vacuum that in turn provides suction. It sticks to most surfaces.
