If you use your iPad or Android tablet as a secondary desktop display, chances are, you’re using a stand or some makeshift contraption to set it at a nice angle next to your monitor. And while there’s nothing with that, the Pixo does seem like a more attractive alternative.
A mount that lets you attach tablets to any desktop monitor (or TV, for that matter), it tidies up your tablet-reinforced multi-monitor setup. No more setting up a stand atop a pile of books to get it at just the right height – with this thing, just place the mount at any desired position (along the sides, on top, and even at the bottom, if there’s room) and you’re set.
The Pixo attaches to your monitor using metallic stickers, which you place both front and back to ensure a secure hold. Once the stickers are set, you simply slide in the mount, which uses a magnetic clasp to affix itself to the metallic stickers. Similarly, you’ll need to add a metallic sticker to the back of your tablet, which, once installed, you can then use to easily snap it onto the mount’s magnetic docking facility. The use of magnets, instead of adhesives, mean you can take the tablet on and off at will, all while making it just as easy to remove the mount at any time.
It can work with any tablets measuring a maximum of 9mm thick and weighing a maximum of 750 grams, which is, pretty much, any modern tablet in the market (including the 12.9-inch iPad Pro). Oh yeah, they don’t recommend it for laptops, unless you’re willing to maybe… possibly… break it or something.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Pixo. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at £25.
