“Hygge”- pronounced as HYU-gah, and loosely translated as “coziness,” “togetherness” or “well-being” in English, is a cultural concept rooted deeply in the Danish life which has helped Denmark become the “happiest country on earth” despite long, dark winters. According to Denmark’s tourism bureau, “hygge” originated from a Norwegian word for “well-being”, and first appeared in Danish near the end of the 18th century. In essence, it means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. While the word “hygge” is uniquely Danish, the concept behind it isn’t. And over here at IPEVO, we do think it can be universally adapted. After all, who will refuse to be happy?

So it is in this view that we have come up with some ideas on how you can easily achieve “hygge” this Christmas with IPEVO very own PadPillow.

Enjoying “hygge” with your family

As your loved ones gather for this festive season, it’s the perfect timing to enjoy some “hygge” with them. Curl up on the sofa, sit together on the floor, or lie around cozying up and bond over laughter through playing on your iPad or Tablets. Or enjoy some quality time together reading a good book. And you can achieve all these while using IPEVO PadPillow as a pillow stand for your iPad or Tablets, or books and magazines. Its versatile design allows it not only to hold iPad/Tablets, but also books and magazines of various sizes. In addition, it can be either fold into a compact mode or fold out to an extended mode for using on couches, chairs, beds or floor. More importantly, its cotton denim cover is soft and comfy, which is safe for both young and adults to use. So, grab one now and start enjoying your “hygge”.

Spreading “hygge” to friends and relatives

For friends or relatives of yours whom are avid users of iPads or Tablets, spread the “hygge” to them by giving them the perfect Christmas gift this season. And IPEVO PadPillow is definitely the right choice! With its cushy, comfy and versatile design, it can be sure that your friends and relatives do not risk injuring their wrists or neck while using their iPads or Tablets for long periods.

Giving your friends and relatives (and their iPad or Tablet) a comfortable companion for Christmas — this act is definitely “hygge”!

“Hygge” for your furry buddy too

What can be more “hygge” than seeing your cute buddy curling up on the sofa or your bed for a nice rest? Well, now with IPEVO PadPillow, they do have one more option to add on to that “hygge”. As the saying goes “good things are meant to be shared” — we all love our iPad, and our iPad loves sitting on the PadPillow, and so don’t be surprised if your adorably buddy comes to appreciate the PadPillow too. Its huggable nature is one of the reasons why we (and they) like it so much. So watch as your buddy sits comfortably on the PadPillow, or lies completely flat on it for a sweet dream.

The recent meteoric rise in the sales of adult coloring books is proving that coloring is fast gaining popularity among adults, tapping into our desire to fend off the stresses of daily life. And no matter whether you are enjoying coloring as a personal relaxation session or coming together as a group to unwind, there’s always a way that an IPEVO document camera can better enhance your experience. So, to all coloring book converts out there, read on and find out more.

Reduce Stress on Your Eyes

We do coloring after a hectic day to help relax our mind, but how about our eyes? With hours already spent during the day staring at computer screens or mobile phones, we are adding more strain to our eyes as we squint to color those intricate drawings in the late hours. This is when an IPEVO doc cam comes in super handy. Connect an IPEVO doc cam to a computer, use it as a kind of magnifying glass to zoom in on the specific portions that you wish to work on, and that live view will be immediately streamed to your computer screen. And voila! In an instance, everything becomes bigger and clearer, meaning you don’t have to squint your eyes anymore! Finally, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Quality Control

Talking about quality control, let’s admit it. Some of us are definitely coloring books enthusiasts who can get quite serious with, and even taking pride in our coloring. As a matter of fact, we know that adult drawings can get very intricate, but it’s a No-No to draw outside the lines. It’s also a No-No to leave blank spaces in between. Besides providing an enlarged image for you to work on, an IPEVO doc cam also double up as a quality control “inspector” by allowing you to easily point and zoom on specific portions to check for precise and tight coloring. And yes, you’ve that quality totally under control.

Seniors Can Enjoy Their Turn Too

No worries even if you are a grandpa or grandma with fading eyesight. With a helping hand from the IPEVO wireless doc cam iZiggi-HD and an iPad, you too will be able to enjoy the relaxing and calming effects of coloring. Simply connect the iZiggi-HD wirelessly to your iPad, place the iZiggi-HD alongside your coloring books, and you will see the live view of the intricate drawings on the iPad. To achieve a bigger and clearer view, use the pinch zoom and drag features of the iPad for adjustments. And once you’ve a comfortable view, start enjoying! For a more ergonomically viewing position, consider placing the iPad on an IPEVO PadPillow.

Ease of Sharing

As they say, “good things are meant to be shared”, and that’s why people are getting together for group coloring events to share tips and laud the mental benefits of coloring sessions. And the best part of a coloring group is that you can share your drawings in real time and receive immediate feedback. Throw in an IPEVO doc cam and it will make that sharing instantly available to all of your coloring pals. Instead of your pals crowding around your drawings or hovering over your shoulder to catch a glimpse of them, you can now stream your drawings onto a computer screen, TV or even a projection screen with a projector. You can even save the hassle of passing your coloring books around and yet achieve the same “around the table sharing” by using the iZiggi-HD doc cam wirelessly with an iPad. Your pals can take turns to look at your drawings through the iPad. Finally when you are all ready, utilize the multi-jointed swing arm of any IPEVO doc cam to position it at the best height and distance to capture the perfect shot of your drawings. And now, your drawings are ready to go viral.

Make Your Tips and Techniques Sharing Interactive

Well, what’s a coloring group like without some tips and techniques sharing time? Who’s not in the favor of learning the perfect flick or “Tip to Tip” technique to get the desired shading effects, or mastering the fine strokes to layer and blend the colors? With IPEVO doc cams, these sharing are made visually available for all, and even interactive. If you have a computer, the Ziggi-HDs are useful for streaming live demonstrations onscreen. If you have a projector for big screen projection, go for the VZ-1 HD that comes with a VGA mode. If you have iPads lying around, use them with the iZiggi-HD and your pals are able to view the demonstrations directly on the iPads. They can even make their own notes by drawing or annotating onto the live view using the IPEVO Whiteboard App without affecting the ongoing demonstrations!

So whether it’s a personal stress relieving activity or a group coloring session, IPEVO’s family of doc cams are the perfect tools to enhance the experience.

happymothersday

Did you remember that Mother’s Day is almost here? Sure, we believe you — you didn’t forget! And even though it’s the thought that counts, Mom is going to take it personally if you don’t deliver on the big day. So why not skip the usual chocolates, flowers, or unwanted cookware? Here’s 6 reasons to surprise Mom with a PadPillow on Mother’s Day.

1. Health matters

Without adequate support, posture problems while using iPad are common in older and younger folks alike. With PadPillow, you can help Mom get comfortably and correctly situated while typing, surfing the web, or watching videos. And there’s another important reason to use a PadPillow: it provides just the right angle to support the hands and wrists for those with arthritis. In fact, many reviewers report just that on PadPillow’s Amazon webpage if you want to take a peek.

mothersday_padpillow_01

2. Comfort matters

Lightweight, soft materials make the PadPillow cushy and yet firm enough to do its thing. Plus, PadPillow’s soft foam will keep iPad’s heat away when she’s binge-watching her favorite show, reading a book she can’t put down, or enjoying a long video call.

mothersday_padpillow_02

3. Versatility matters

PadPillow was created for all generations of iPad. However, hundreds of users have come up with a long list of items you can also use it with, including Kindle, smart phones, some small laptops, other tablets and e-readers, and many more. So, if your mom has one of these products, chances are the PadPillow will be a great complement for her preferred device.

4. Design matters

Just take a look at the pictures — this could be love at first sight. The PadPillow is pretty! You just have to pick your mom’s favorite color (or the color that’ll match the living room curtains), and you’ll be all set.

mothersday_padpillow_03

5. Convenience matters

Made with easy-to-wash materials, PadPillow won’t cause any trouble if it gets dirty or needs to go into storage for a while. Plus, it’s small enough for Mom to take along whenever she travels, even on the bus or plane. PadPillow is just the right size. And remember, it’s not heavy at all.

6. Surprise matters

Mom won’t expect anything out of the ordinary for Mother’s Day, and that’s exactly what you can deliver with PadPillow. Besides, maybe she doesn’t even know that her perfect gift is just sitting out there and waiting for her? And moms, if you’re reading this and you get a PadPillow, I know what you’re thinking: that means an iPad is on its way too, right? Let’s hope so!

Happy Mother’s Day!

DSC_9032_590

We’ve all got technophiles on our holiday shopping list. And nothing quite gets people excited like tricking out their iPad. With that in mind, what kind of gift do you feed an iPad junkie? It can’t be run-of-the-mill, but most importantly it should be something functional and useful — something they won’t just leave on the shelf. And hey, let’s be honest, it can’t cost you a fortune! With all those in mind, let’s dive right into 6 affordable iPad accessories from IPEVO that could meet and exceed their holiday expectations. These are all available straight from the IPEVO Store at Amazon.

1. Perch M Side/Sofa Stand: 

Perfect for the “techy musician”

perchPerch M is perfect for musicians who use the iPad for sheet music or other music apps. People who multi-task in the living room by flipping through iPad while they’re watching TV. Perch M also makes a great second screen setup for people at their computer desk.

Pros: Perch M is versatile and the ideal height for seated users. Forged aluminum construction is lightweight and ultramodern. And you can change the viewing angle and orientation by hand thanks to a dual-axis hinge.

Cons: It might be too big for certain applications, and you certainly can’t put it on a table or counter. But you’re still in luck: IPEVO also sells the Perch S, a smaller version for tabletops.

2. USB SuperCharger: 

Perfect for the “dedicated teacher”

perchUSB Supercharger could be a big hit for teachers who use iPads in the classroom, as with 1-to-1 iPad programs. It would also make business power users and mobile entrepreneurs pretty happy. The entire small group — meeting at the bistro or in the conference room — could charge up as they present material or collaborate.

Pros: A single wall socket charges up to 4 iPads simultaneously. No hunting for wall sockets or extra power strips. This is a full charge at 2.1A, meaning you’ll get the same charge speed as with the OEM adapter; other chargers compromise on the amps for a slower overall charge.

Cons: While it can charge a single iPad just fine, you’ll need a scenario involving multiple iPads to get the most use out of this device.

3. PadPillow: 

Perfect for the “avid iPad user”

perchPadPillow is perfect for people who web surf in bed or while laid out on the sofa. A top choice for avid ebook readers. PadPillow is also a smart idea for older folks with arthritis, as it can cut down on the wrist pain and sore arms that come from extended iPad use. Finally, because it’s soft and cuddly, it’s a safe choice for children using iPad for gaming or learning.

Pros: Comfort computing. A soft body pillow doubles as a support for iPad, other tablets, and ebook readers. It can be used in many more places than a steel or plastic stand: on the couch arm, in bed, on the carpet, or directly on the stomach. The pillow folds apart to make room for a keyboard, too.

Cons: While good for the car, it’s a little large to be taken in the carry-on bag for airplane trips. Train commuters and coffee shop addicts might also think it’s just a wee too big compared to folding folio-type stands.

4. PadPillow Lite:

Perfect for the “frequent traveler”

perchPadPillow Lite does fit in the carry-on luggage, so frequent air travelers in need of a comfy place to put their iPad on long flights would consider this a lifesaver. It’s also great on the train or subway, or to help keep the kids occupied in the back seat of a long car trip.

Pros: It’s in the name: Lite. This is a lighter and smaller version of the original PadPillow. Its size fits devices like the iPad Mini and Kindle readers. Available in Pink for the ladies, Dark Grey for the guys. At $12.99, you can’t really lose with this one.

Cons: The size makes the pillow stand more travel-ready for commuters, but some users may prefer the taller, plumper original PadPillow for larger tablets, particularly at home when size is not an issue.

5. 360° Rotating Folio Case:

Perfect for the “cool dad”

perch360° Rotating Folio Case is great for artists (professionals and hobbyists) who need to often switch between portrait and orientation. Same goes for salesmen and other businesspeople who rely on multimedia content and apps like Keynote to share, collaborate and present.

Pros: 360 degrees of viewing freedom thanks to a central pivot, making switching between portrait and orientation a breeze. A microfiber cover and genuine leather holder look clean and professional. And for a sleeker, on-the-go profile, you can pull out the holder from the rest of the case and re-insert it just as easily.

Cons: It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of more expensive cases — such as a built-in keyboard or all-leather construction. But at the price ($12.99 at the time of this writing), you won’t find a better case.

6. Tubular Wireless Speakers:

Perfect for the “outdoorsy friend”

perchTubular Wireless Speakers is perfect for teenagers and college students who enjoy streaming Pandora or listening to their iTunes library during study sessions. Also a good choice for outdoorsy people — hikers, swimmers, campers, road trippers — who would appreciate a compact set of stereo speakers to share the tunes instead of keeping the earphones on.

Pros: This compact pair of Bluetooth speakers comes in an interlocking tube design for storage or travel. It’s small enough to fit in a car’s cup holder. 6 to 8 hours of audio on a full charge, recharges via standard USB. With its stereo configuration, Tubular is a clear upgrade over iPad’s built-in mono speaker.

Cons: It won’t deliver the output or fidelity of a premium Bluetooth speaker like Jambox, but it’s a solid choice at less than one-third the price ($44.00) of Jambox or similar speakers.

5 Reasons Why a Pillow Stand Makes a Great Holiday Gift

Filed Under (iPad in Business, PadPillow Pillow Stand for All Generations of iPad, APPLICATION, All Products, PadPillow) by ipevoblog on 2013-11-10

The holidays are coming up again — so quick? — and that means figuring out what to get everybody on your list. We thought we’d take a little guesswork out of your gift-giving by sharing 5 reasons why a Pillow Stand can make a unique, functional, and fun holiday gift.

Take the IPEVO PadPillow Stand. It’s designed for iPad, tablets and ebook readers, and it gives the user a comfortable yet sturdy place to set their device while they’re reading in bed, surfing the web on the couch, or any number of everyday tasks. At only $24.95, it won’t cost a fortune, and it’ll be something they’ll actually use. But don’t take it from us. Here are 5 reasons backed by comments from actual users who purchased their own stands on Amazon. 1. Easing pain and soreness The iPad may not be “heavy” in the usual sense of the word, but just try holding it in the air or awkwardly cradling it in your lap for any extended period of time. PadPillow helps with these issues, and it’s also a great fit for the handicapped and others with special needs.

“Genius! This product is pure genius! My wrist was killing me from balancing my iPad while reclining, plus I couldn’t use both hands. I had no idea anything like this existed and I am so glad I found it.” —Victoriastars-5-0._V192240867_

“I have Rheumatoid arthritis and have a difficult time holding things for long periods of time. I just put this on my lap with my Kindle Fire on it and my hands are free and it is so comfortable. I highly recommend this for everyone.”—L. Constantinostars-5-0._V192240867_

“Perfect iPad stand for a handicapped person. No hard edges or corners allows easier use of the iPad for those with limited physical ability.”—frytzystars-5-0._V192240867_

2. Compatible with a ton of devices With IPEVO PadPillow, it doesn’t really matter which specific device they have. From iPad Mini to Microsoft Surface, the pillow stand supports it all.

“Love this product. I sit in bed at night with my Kindle and love how this holds my Kindle. It’s much better than the “bead bag” ones I’ve seen and that my husband owns.

PadPillow and Max

Okay, so you’ve purchased a pillow stand for your iPad. Now you can support your tablet at any height and angle and be really, really comfy on the couch or in bed. All good.

PadPillow and Max

Unfortunately, Max is giving you that “WTF?” face. You realize you have to acclimate your pets to this amazing new accessory which will now steal your time and attention.

PadPillow and Max

First, show Max how soft and non-threatening the stand is. Adorably sad faces are standard during this process.

PadPillow and Max

He may resent your new cuddle buddy. A reassuring hug will remind him that he is also still soft and cuddly.

PadPillow and Max

Anger, revolts, and downright attempts to destroy your pillow stand might follow. Patience is key during this crucial stage.

PadPillow and Max

Max will come to regard the pillow stand as his enemy, and may bark, yowl, or yap from a distance. Just let this ritual play out. Earphones help.

PadPillow and Max

Eventually, after a couple of weeks, Max learns that he’s not really competing with the stand. He’s warm fur, and the stand is soft foam with a 100% cotton cover. Different universes.

PadPillow and Max

Aggression gives way to curiosity. You’re almost to acceptance…

PadPillow and Max

Getting even closer…

PadPillow and Max

BOOM! Max is his happy-go-lucky self again.

PadPillow and Max

And now you can enjoy your pillow stand… as a family.

PadPillow and Nibbles

But wait! Nibbles the Cat! What’s he doing here? He hates strangers even more than Max!

PadPillow and Nibbles

This could get ugly. He’s like a… well, he IS a cat ready to pounce.

PadPillow and Nibbles

But you’re willing to take a claw to the chest to get these two to play nice.

PadPillow and Nibbles

Is Nibbles actually liking the ease, comfort, and utility of the pillow stand?

PadPillow and Nibbles

YES! Now you, your pillow stand, and your pets can exist in multimedia bliss.

PadPillow and Nibbles

What’s that, Nibbles? You want to get one for yourself? The PadPillow is available from IPEVO.com in 6 cool colors. Unfortunately, catnip is not included. Don’t give me that face.

Would you believe a pillow stand will make you look (and feel) like the coolest, most put-together summer reader ever? It will. Trust us.

1. Horizontal is In
You may have heard that vertical is in. That’s so 2008. Get horizontal and support your book in any position — to the envy of all your frenemies.

2. Moisturize
Water, water, everywhere, but not a drop to– Oh, wait, I have an extra hand free because of my cool pillow stand.

 

3. Choose the Right Colors
You can’t just tell people how good you are at expressing your individuality. You have to show people.

4. Find a Form That Suits You
The “sideways sit” should only be attempted with a versatile pillow stand and 1 to 2 years of dedicated study at a European fashion house.

 

5. Mix It Up
Will you choose book, tablet, Kindle or magazine? The answer is: Yes. You simply can’t be caught dead with just one type of reading material.

 

6. Make Your Accessories Work
Before the pillow stand, the world of tablet computing and the world of drinking could never collide. Forget all you know, or think you know.

 

7. Take Full Advantage of Textures
And by “textures,” I mean the amazing feeling of sand between your toes as you laze away the day.

8. Layers, Layers, Layers
I mean, seriously. A stand that conforms to your lap? The only thing better is pairing that with the classic boyfriend headrest.

9. Define Your Look, Not the Other Way Around
Because television is such a critical darling nowadays, you’ll always look intelligent and “with it” when you make the switch between your book and catching up on Breaking Bad.

10. Be Serious About Your Fun
You deserve it all — the great outdoors, comfy lounging, and multimedia entertainment at a proper viewing angle. This much fun requires your serious face.

 

11. Know Where to Shop
You can get the PadPillow Stand in 6 different colors from IPEVO.com. Think of it as foam couture.
