Perch is finding a place in all sorts of venues. Today we wanted to share how Perch M as well as Perch L have scored a hole in one (or at least a very nice Eagle) on the golf course and driving ranges.
Perch is the user-friendly lightweight stand for iPad or iPad 2. Pop in your iPad and you have a versatile go-anywhere stand at the ideal height and viewing angle for hands-free operation. Perch M, our medium stand, comes up nearly waist-high and is ideal for seated users, while Perch L is higher for standing users.
One of the early inspirations for Perch came from the driving range. Our CEO, Royce, is an avid golfer, and he was eager to use the iPad (and a few golf swing tutorial videos and apps) to improve his game.
However, as you can imagine it’s tough (if not impossible!) to view the iPad while you’re practicing your swing. The iPad needs to be at a decent height. What do you do — prop it up between the clubs in your golf bag? Not good. For these kind of scenarios, Perch was born. Depending on personal preference and height, golfers using Perch have found that either the M or the L models have worked for them.
With either M or L, you can position the lightweight stand wherever you like, whether you’re right- or left-handed. Adjust the viewing angle as well as the orientation by hand, and you have a customized iPad mount for the course or driving range that’s easy to transport in the backseat or trunk of your car.
As an additional use, owners of courses and ranges can use Perch as a signboard to advertise tee times, pricing, specials on products in the clubhouse golf shop and more.
