So you have an iPad in your home, you use it for everything, and let’s confess - it’s a big part of your life. But does your iPad have a home too? Introducing LaunchPort: the best way to charge, hold and protect your iPad in your home.
LaunchPort eliminates wires from your life and provides a seamless and easy system for keeping your iPad always charged. Perch your iPad on a BaseStation and use for typing, viewing apps and content. Place on a WallStation and use as a digital picture frame, information center, or just a window with a view of your life.
LaunchPort has two parts, a Sleeve and a Station. The Sleeve wraps around your iPad, protects it, and provides an interface to mount your iPad to a Station. The Station gives you a spot to mount your iPad, rotate in portrait or landscape, all the while keeping your iPad charged. There are two types of Stations: a WallStation for, you guessed it, mounting your iPad on the Wall, and a BaseStation for most everything else.
The LaunchPort system consists of a Sleeve and any number of Stations. A Sleeve is a case that fits onto your iPad. A Station is the mount and charging unit that interacts with a Sleeve. A system requires a Sleeve and a Station.
LaunchPort uses induction which means as soon as a Sleeve is mounted to a Station, charging begins immediately- without a 30-pin cable or conductive elements. Magnets are used to mount and affix your iPad in its Sleeve to a Station. The tabletop BaseStation only uses some of the magnets in the LaunchPort system, making it easier to grab and go. The WallStation uses all magnets in the system for secure and safe mounting. The magnets are located on the Sleeve case which means you can also mount it to any metallic surface like a refrigerator or work bench.
LaunchPort changes how you can use your iPad in your home.
