Like many iPad users, I don’t always use mine on a flat surface — and there’s nothing more rewarding than answering a few casual e-mails whilst laid back in bed. Unfortunately, though, trying to use a Smart Cover whilst resting on your lap is a pain in the proverbial backside and most of the time, I have to resort to holding the iPad in one hand whilst typing with the other, which makes writing e-mails an extremely laborious task.

Thankfully, though, this pain was shared by Thomas Borowski and that’s exactly why he designed the GroovBoard. Handmade by a local carpenter in the tiny Bavarian town of Obing, Germany, the GroovBoard lets you work with your iPad comfortably on your lap or on your legs and it’s also designed to work with the Apple Wireless Keyboard (which can be paired to your iPad via Bluetooth) so you can type away comfortably on any surface.

There’s also space for a stylus (and if you haven’t got one the GroovBoard store stocks a range of them) and the GroovBoard is available in a range of different woods, from alder to walnut.
