The Bluelounge Mika Universal Table Stand is simplicity at its best. The stand is universal so it works with most every tablet and many light, thin laptops. It is, as the company notes, “simple and timeless, it can be used for the device you carry today, and tomorrow. And at $29.95, the Mika makes a great gift this holiday season!
What’s new is that Mika is now available in white with light grey details. Until now it was only available in aluminium with black details. This new version offers a nice aesthetic option.
“That drawer filled with old accessories and chargers that you’re holding onto “just in case” – you won’t find Mika in there.”
Made from aluminium and plastic, the Mika is simplicity at its finest. There are no moving parts, nothing to assemble and, as a result, nothing to wear out or break. At just 4.5 x 4.25 x 0.25″ it also doesn’t take up much space. That makes it ideal for small spaces or to just leave on a desk, table, or countertop waiting for a time when you might need to use it.
As Bluelounge explains:
“Mika can be a helpful companion in the kitchen to prop up an iPad to follow a recipe. Mika can prop up tablets to use as an extra display when working. Mika is available in a soft white to coordinate with accessories and other fixtures. Mika is made from solid aluminum and is coated in a soft white with light grey details.”
“Mika is the ultimate universal stand for tablets, phones and more. Formed from solid aluminium, Mika tilts devices at the optimal angle Tilted at the optimal angle, Mika is the perfect stand for all tablets. Tilted at the optimal angle, Mika is the perfect stand for all tablets. Mika can also be used to stow a laptop at the end of the night to free up desktop space. Mika can be a helpful companion in the kitchen to prop up an iPad to follow a recipe Mika can prop up tablets to use as an extra display when working. Designed for the devices you have today and the ones you choose tomorrow, Mika never goes out of style.”
The Mika is:
- Angled To Perfection: 70-degree angle allows you watch videos, read or use your iPad as secondary display.
- Made From Premium Materials: Because the design is so simple, solid aluminium or a white (coated aluminium) finish make Mika edgy and sophisticated.
- A Stand That Goes Beyond Tablets: Mika can also be used with thinner laptops or wireless keyboards.
Yes, the Mika works well with pretty much any tablet. It works great with my iPad Air 2 but works equally well with my iPad mini. It is also, however, compatible with thinner laptops such as the MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro.
I’m a big fan of Bluelounge products and the Mika is no exception. Add in the fact that it ships with one of their CableDrop Mini cable holders and you have something that will make a great gift for someone… or yourself. You can learn more and order yours here.
