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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

6 Reasons to Project Your iPad Screen with a USB Document Cam

Filed Under (Document Cameras in Business, iPad in Education, Ziggi-HD/Ziggi-HD Plus Document Cameras, Point 2 View (P2V) USB Document Camera, APPLICATION, PRODUCT) by ipevoblog on 2013-04-15

Do you need to project iPad onto the big screen for your lecture or presentation? If so, you definitely need to know why a USB document camera is the best way to go.

Reasons Why We Recommend an IPEVO Document Camera:

1. Project All Apps and Tablets
When it comes to projecting iPad, people turn to Apple technologies like Apple TV and AirPlay. However, AirPlay is not available on older iPads or iPhones, nor does it support every single app. With an IPEVO doc cam, you don’t need to worry about compatibility. The camera simply captures everything displayed on your iPad, iPhone or any other tablet.

2. Offer a Complete Picture by Including Fingers and Gestures
“How did you do that?” If you’ve ever been asked that question, you know the importance of showing actual operations and gestures on iPad with fingers visible. From piano apps to drawing math diagrams and more, finger gestures absolutely matter, and you can only capture them with a document camera.

3. No Need to Mess with Network Settings — Plug-and-Play via USB
To project your iPad with AirPlay, you need to link them both to the same network, which can sometimes cause problems and delays. With an IPEVO document camera, just plug in your camera to a USB port on your projector-linked computer and launch the software. You’ll be ready to go in no time! And no hassling with the network or waiting on IT for help.

4. Effortlessly Switch Between Devices and Objects
Sometimes you need to include more than one iPad in your lecture. And sometimes you need to show a book, a printed diagram, or something else entirely. No matter what material it is, an IPEVO doc cam projects it all. And there’s no need to switch between different setups to present different types of material. Just slide your material under the doc cam to project it.

Effortlessly switch between devices and objects

5. Remote Lectures are Easy with IPEVO
An IPEVO document camera is easy to set up on PC or Mac, and it’s perfect for webinars, video conferencing and distance education. All you need to do is select IPEVO Document Camera in Skype, start the video conference, and shoot the iPad to start your lecture.

6. Get All These Features Combined for Just $69 with Free Shipping
An IPEVO document camera is the ideal tool for your iPad presentations. It’s easy to use, it’s portable, and it’s affordable — as low as $69. Get it at a trusted retailer like Amazon, or purchase from www.ipevo.com and take advantage of free shipping.

Make Your Own PadPillow

Filed Under (iPad in Business, PadPillow Pillow Stand for All Generations of iPad, All Products, APPLICATION, IPEVO, PRODUCT) by ipevoblog on 2013-04-02

The PadPillow is one of our most popular products, and we decided to offer up a Do-It-Yourself Guide for making your very own PadPillow from scratch. Now making PadPillow is just as much fun as using it! This DIY project is great for families or just anyone who loves some hands-on arts and crafts.

Here’s what you need to do, one step at a time:

  1. Buy (or reuse) a large piece of sturdy cloth for the PadPillow exterior. It should measure 0.45 yards (about 16 inches) long and 45 inches wide. A tough material like denim works best, but you can experiment with other fabrics. Gather a few necessary tools: scissors, pencil, a sewing needle and thread, a sewing machine, a razor knife, and a ruler. Lastly, you will need a small piece of leather to make a leather tab.
  2. Purchase a large chunk of carving foam, which can be found at art supply stores or other specialty stores. This will form the soft body of the PadPillow.
  3. Download IPEVO’s printable .pdf file of PadPillow cutouts, and print the document in its original size. Cut out the shapes from the printed document with scissors. Place the four cutouts onto your chosen cloth. Trace the shapes with a pencil.
  4. Cut the cloth according to the shapes with scissors. You will now have three cloth cutouts — one long rectangle and two chisel-like shapes.

  5. Using the cutout document as your guide, sew the leather tag onto the rectangular cloth cutouts using needle and thread.

  6. With a sewing machine, sew the chisel shapes onto the rectangular shape using the cutout document as a guide for where to join the pieces.
  7. When you’ve sewn all three cloth cutouts together, you’ll have the basic shape of the PadPillow with a hole in the back to stuff foam into.


  8. From your carving foam, cut your first piece of foam using a ruler and razor knife. The smaller piece should measure 12.6 x 9.1 x 1.6 inches (32 x 23 x 4cm).
  9. Shave down one side of the foam piece to form a semi-triangular shape rather than a simple rectangle.
  10. Cut your second triangular piece of foam. This piece measures 6.3 x 5.7 x 12.6 inches (16 x 14 x 32cm ), where 6.3 inches is the base of the triangle, 5.7 inches is the height, and 12.6 inches is the length.
  11. Carefully stuff the foam pieces one at a time into the opening of the sewn-together cloth cutouts.

  12. Try folding the two foam sections together. If it doesn’t fold quite right, you’ll need to remove the foam pieces and trim them for a better fit.
  13. Enjoy your very own homemade PadPillow! It’s perfect to hold iPad and ebook readers in the lap or anywhere else.

Are you familiar with PadPillow? It’s the soft pillow stand that makes your e-reading and tablet computing much more comfortable. And now PadPillow is available in three new colors — Lemongrass, Honeysuckle, and Tangerine. PadPillow conforms to your body, and now it might just conform to your personal sense of style, too.

If you’re not familiar with PadPillow, this cushy triangular stand is made from a soft foam covered in an equally soft denim cover. PadPillow is for all those times you use your iPad or ebook reader away from the desk, whether it’s lounging on the sofa or reclining in bed. You can place it on the bed, the carpet, the arm of the sofa, or right in your lap. PadPillow can be used with all generations of iPad, including the new iPad 3, and it can also be used with other tablets and ebook readers like the different Kindles and Nooks. It can even be used with traditional magazines.

One more note: PadPillow comes in two sections which can be compactly kept together or folded apart. When folded apart, PadPillow gives you room for a separate keyboard if you’re writing emails or having an IM session, for just two examples.

Lemongrass, Honeysuckle and Tangerine (which are subtle shades of yellow-green, pink and orange) join the existing three PadPillow colors: Steve’s Blue Jeans, Light Khaki, and Charcoal Gray. That’s a total of six PadPillow colors to express your individuality while you’re getting work done or enjoying a nice, long read. Don’t crane and don’t strain: get PadPillow and enjoy a better way to read, surf, watch movies, and much more.

The Accessory You Can Hug – Introducing PadPillow Pillow Stand for iPad

Hey, iPad users. Need a little support for your iPad when you’re hanging out in bed surfing or working, or when you’re sitting on the couch, or even on the floor? We had that problem, too. You shouldn’t have to be chained to a desk to enjoy the kind of hands-free support you’d get from a metal stand or portfolio case stand, both of which need a hard and stable surface to work.

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand for iPad

Enter PadPillow Pillow Stand, IPEVO‘s newest member of the family. PadPillow is designed for your own body as much as it is for the iPad. It’s a super-soft, super-comfy body pillow shaped like a triangle—well, two triangles with a soft hinge, but we’ll get to that in a second. Basically, you can use PadPillow on your lap or belly for extended, comfortable use of the iPad. It’ll feel as cozy and huggable as a bed pillow, with its soft foam and its 100% cotton denim cover. But it’ll be stable enough to keep the iPad at just the right viewing angle for all your multimedia apps—Angry Birds, anyone?—as well as the movie-watching, emailing, and all that other fun and productive stuff you do.

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand for iPad and iPad 2

It’s also pretty darned versatile. Remember I said it has two sections connected with a soft hinge? You can extend these triangular sections out and rest a full Bluetooth keyboard in front of the iPad, and then rest your hands on a comfy foam wrist support. Or, you can fold the sections together to make a compact triangle that’s great for your lap or, say, the arm of a sofa. In this configuration, a raised leather label acts as a stopper to keep the iPad in place. Pretty smart. In either position, you can use PadPillow’s unique shape to change the viewing angle just by changing the position of your body. Now that’s comfort computing!

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand

A couple other notes: the blue denim cover is removable and machine-washable. We bet you’ll be using PadPillow as a pillow for your head at some point, maybe after a long day of shooting aliens or what not, so we want PadPillow to always be fresh and clean for you. Also, while PadPillow was designed for the iPad, it can accommodate many other types of tablet computers, along with ebook readers like the Nook or Kindle, and even regular books and magazines. So tackle that War and Peace novel you’ve always been meaning to—you now have a fun and functional pillow to help you get through the lengthier passages.

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand

Try PadPillow out in bed, on the carpet, on the lounger or the deck chair, or on your sectional. We guarantee PadPillow will take you to Cloud Nine in no time.
