Anyone looking for a new dock for their tablet should take a look at the Mantis Stand.

As the name suggests, the Mantis Stand draws inspiration from the predatory insect. While it may not take its entire form, the piece definitely resembles the insect's overall look as grip that the dock brings is certainly reflective of its strong grasp. It's constructed from solid aluminum with a slick, durable anodised finish. The claw is shaped in an 'X' that grips all four corners of the tablet securely. It can also swivel around so that users can have the option of landscape or portrait multimedia viewing. The arm is retractable as well for those who want to adjust the stand to a proper eye level.

The Mantis Stand is compatible with the iPad and the iPad 2.
