Slope is an impressive new stand for the iPad and iPad mini that is seeking funding via Kickstarter.

Slope is made from aerospace grade aluminum. Her minimal form is shaped via CNC machining, her beauty by way of her finish—hand buffed, glass bead blasted, hard anodized and sealed. It's a finish aptly complimenting the craftsmanship of Apple's iPad, with no expense spared.

How It Works:
Suction is the thing that drives its function. Slope has two nanofoam pads affixed to its aluminum base, one gripping the backside of the tablet, the other gripping the surface of the desk underneath. These pads are comprised of a special make of foam that, as you can see from the video, are extremely effective.

The material that comprises nanofoam was manufactured in such a way that it is laden with thousands of open air-pockets along its surface. Pressing an object with a flat surface up against the nanofoam forces the air out of the pockets thereby creating a vacuum, and it's this vacuum that creates the suction you experience. You can't truly grok it until you feel it for yourself.

You can pledge $55 for a Slope mini (iPad Mini) or $59 for a Slope (iPad). The project has already raised $20,696 of its $60,000 goal with 27 days left.

Check out the videos below for a demonstration. Following this Kickstarter campaign a second one will raise money for an iPhone version of the stand.

Looks great. Main Concern to me would be how sensible the Nanofoam is against dirt. If I move the Stand it will pich up dirt from the surface of the Table, if leave it standing without a tablet attached it will pickup dust from the air. How good will the Nanofoam work after half a year or so?

Forget the stand, I'd like to buy the nano foam material.
