The iPad Flexible Arm Lets You "Comfortably" Use Tablets In Bed

This is either completely stupid or I am missing something major: Tokyo-based crap gadget maker Thanko strikes again with the so-called “iPad Flexible Arm” [JP]. The idea here is to make it easier for owners to use tablets (both in a vertical and horizontal position) while lying in bed.

The thing is specifically designed for use with the iPad and iPad 2, but according to Thanko, most tablets not thicker than 18mm will fit.

The iPad Flexible Arm is already on sale in Thanko’s Japanese online store (price: $61).
