The TabletTail system works with almost any iPad, tablet, or e-reader. It also works with any non-textured, non-porous hard case. Octa’s vacuum suction technology is safe and reliable, and can hold up to 60 pounds for a minimum of six hours without re-pumping. Re-pumping what? Let us tell you how it works.
Start out by taking the Vacuum Dock and placing it against the back of your device. With a few easy pumps, the air between the Vacuum Dock and your tablet is displaced, creating a tight seal. This seal will hold for a minimum of six hours with no additional pumps, though in test runs the hold has lasted much longer. Use the Vacuum Dock as is for a tablet grip. The rounded shape was made to fit perfectly in the human hand at rest, and is very comfortable to use, especially while reading on a Kindle or Kindle Fire.
If you want an iPad handle or stand, simply remove the Dome Cap from the Vacuum Dock and click on the WhaleTail. The Dome Cap is a small piece of rubber which protects your hand from the Vacuum Dock’s gear system for use without a tail. The WhaleTail can be used as a tablet stand, to prop your device up at any range of angles. Use it as a low angle stand for increased lateral support! You can also use the stand on both horizontal and vertical planes.
Thread the WhaleTail between your fingers and you’ve got the perfect iPad handle. Curl the tail tightly around your hand and curl the twin flukes in towards your wrist for the ultimate support. With this kind of iPad handle, you can walk around and use your hands without the fear of dropping your device.
The whole system comes in a drawstring bag, which can be used to clean the screen of your device. The entire system comes as a package, which includes the WhaleTail, Dome Cap, and Vacuum Dock. Octa will be releasing a variety of tails throughout 2012, all of which will be completely interchangeable with the Vacuum Dock + WhaleTail.
