The Smart Easel® works like a traditional artists easel, but instead of holding a canvas it grips your phone or tablet.
Today, we use our phones and tablets to capture special moments, keep us entertained, and make sure we stay productive. But the stands for our devices are often cheaply made, questionably functional, and not exactly designed to be pleasing to the eye. So I created The Smart Easel® to combine form and function in a simple but attractive package. Each Smart Easel® is handcrafted out of wood and holds your smartphone/tablet without having to take your device out of it's protective case. It sits on any flat surface, easily attaches to a tripod, assembles in seconds, and can even be used as a selfie stick.
The Smart Easel®came into existence after listening to my actor friends complain about the difficulty of recording auditions from home, They also didn't want to spend a lot of money on video cameras since they already had a good camera on their phone. So, necessity became an invention.
Over the years, people have showed me so many other ways they've used their Smart Easel®, including video conferencing, product demonstrations, reading an eBook while drinking their coffee, cooking in the kitchen, working and studying, playing online tutorials, and so much more. I look forward to seeing how you use yours.
