Sanwa has just released a new stand for the iPad that aims to turn it into a laptop. Designed by KEYDEX, the 400-SP014 is a stand that features a cylindrical external speaker (covered in non-slip silicone) that is used to amplify the sounds coming out of your iPad and also for you to prop up your iPad against. There is also a tray for you to place your iPad keyboard (not included with the stand) onto, and since it is elevated and at an angle, it allows you to use the keyboard more comfortably. And if you don’t feel productive, there’s even a slot at the front of the tray that can turn your iPad into a screen to watch your favorite shows and videos on. It’s now available in Japan, but whether it’s worth paying $42 for is another question.
