Hey

I really did not need the next " Arm for iPad " , but after finishing it , and mounting it to the wall beside my bed ,  i found it  very useful !

you don't need to actually hold the iPad, you can swivel 360 degree , and it`s actually very handy

I used one of my unused Desk light fixture.
Disassembled it`s end , removed the wiring , and assembled some tablet mount i purchased from eBay

Attached it to the wall , and that`s it, i`m ready for some chilling on my bed with the  " iBed "   :)

I agree! , i did not think about it in that direction.

there are a lot of iPad stands in the market for sale for about 50$ ...

Wow, that looks great.

Silly question - I don't suppose you remember the name of the tablet mount you got? Because I'm looking for one that can hold my iPad while it's still in its (fairly bulky) case, and that looks like it would be perfect.

and the mount itself also from eBay
