Cicada from Uplifting Solutions

Winter is here, but the Cicadas are Humming! Uplifting Solutions launches the new Cicada laptop / iPad / tablet holder

Cicada from Uplifting Solutions


August 1st, 2012

Typically the most successful designs are those that enhance the minutiae of our day-to-day existence without so much as drawing a second glance – the unsung heroes of efficiency.

One such innovation that, in name, is loud and proud but in functionality is the perfect example of design working for us, with us, definitely not against us.

Portable, lightweight and flexible, Cicada™ elevates your laptop or iPad screen to an ergonomic viewing height for cool computing and comfortable viewing.

At only 400g the sturdy little support boasts Samson like strength capable of bearing up to 5.4kgs, be that a laptop, iPad or PC tablet with keyboard.

A fully height-adjustable, telescopic and tripodic arrangement, Cicada™ requires minimal surface area contact with your device, allowing better circulation of air, avoiding overheating. Compact when collapsed it stows efficiently in your pocket or a laptop case.

Cicada™ guarantees better ergonomics for working as much as it is an indispensable tool for presenting to clients, groups or browsing content.

Selling for $49 AUD, the price – like the device – is low impact and promises a lot for very little.
