- Can you use a tablet without touching the screen? Absolutely. If you have food or oil on your hands, you can simply ask Siri, Google, Alexa, or Cortana.
- What is the best way to use a tablet hands-free? SkyFloat is a new tablet mount that makes your device “float” in mid-air on a cable, suspended from the ceiling.
Most of the time, you probably cradle your tablet on the couch. But sometimes, it’s nice to take the weight off your arms — when you’re watching a movie, for instance.
Tablet stands get the job done when you’re sitting at a table. But what about when you’re in bed or using your tablet to provide guidance for a DIY project? Finding a suitable place to stand your device can be tricky.
SkyFloat offers a neat solution. This innovative new tablet mount hangs from the ceiling. As a result, you don’t need to find a surface to stand your tablet on.
What is a ceiling-mounted tablet mount?
It might sound a bit crazy, but suspending your device from the ceiling actually makes a lot of sense.
SkyFloat comes with two magnetic plates, which you can stick on the ceiling anywhere around your home or workspace. For added security, you can fix the plate in position with two screws.
SkyFloat comes with an extendable metal arm, which sticks to the magnetic ceiling plate on contact. On the end of this arm is an adjustable tablet and smartphone holder.
Whenever you want to watch a movie or read a book hands-free, you simply mount your device and push the telescopic arm against the ceiling plate. The magnetic attraction is reassuringly strong, and the arm can extend most of the way to the ground.
So that’s the practical side. But where would you use SkyFloat? Some of the options might not be immediately obvious.
For instance, you could stick a magnetic plate on your bathroom ceiling to enjoy movies in the bath. You could also install SkyFloat in the kitchen, giving you easy access to recipes without the chance of splashing your device with tomato sauce.
You can even use SlyFloat to watch yoga videos while you’re on the ground, or mount your phone to record videos. The potential uses are numerous.
“Amazing! SkyFloat holds your device for you in mid-air, so you can watch your videos completely hands-free at home or in your office.” — SkyFloat
The best parts
You might think that a tablet mount like this would be tricky to set up, but it’s possible to install SkyFloat in a couple of minutes. The telescopic arm is also a great idea, providing all the flexibility you could possibly need.
While the magnetic plate is designed to hold the weight of a tablet, we can’t help wondering whether a locking system would be better. Maybe that’s something we will see in version two.
