An Organic Lap Pillow Rest For Your iPad

If you’re one of those who has recently adopted an iPad or similar e-reader tablet, you may share Kyle Voltz’ former frustration at not being able to sit with your gizmo down and get the hands-free angle you want. If so, he’d like you to know that he and his partner have created an earth-friendly solution, just for you: the Lap Log.

This is, essentially, a buckwheat-filled organic cotton pillow that molds itself to fit your lap, or whatever surface you happen to place it on. An attached insert, hand-carved from repurposed wood locally sourced in Charleston, South Carolina, holds your tablet steady as you read.

“I grew tired of not being able to get the viewing angle I wanted, or having it fall over every time I switched positions while watching my iPad in bed,” stated Voltz, Co-Owner of Lap Log, LLC, in a statement. He goes on to note that he and his partner saw the need and created the product to fill it. (As a side note, the Lap Log can also be used as a neck pillow.)
