ElevationLab Debuts Aluminum Elevation Stand for iMac and Apple Displays

by

ElevationLab today launched a new Kickstarter project for the Elevation Stand, an aluminum stand designed for the iMac and Apple displays. Aimed at improving posture, the Elevation Stand is milled from a single piece of aluminum to match the seamless look of the iMac and Apple’s displays.

According to ElevationLab, the Elevation Stand has the smallest footprint of available iMac stands, along with a minimalistic design that hides extras like hard drives, USB hubs, cables, and more. It raises the monitor by 68mm, encouraging users to sit up straighter.


The company is also debuting the Elevation Anchor, made to keep headphones out of sight but within reach. Constructed from medical-grade silicone, it mounts under a desk to hide headphones.

ElevationLab previously produced the Elevation Dock, an aluminum iPhone dock that raised more than 1.4 million dollars.

The Elevation Stand can be preordered via a Kickstarter pledge of $59, while the Elevation Anchor can be preordered for $25. A $79 pledge gets backers a Stand and two Anchors, while additional colors are available at $85 and $99 price points. All products are expected to ship in September of 2014.

Why are all these videos always in the same style? The uplifting music, narrating with production footage being shown. Seems like everyone is trying to copy Apple's videos. Can't these people just make their own style and come up with a different idea to showcase their products.

The narrator of the video is eh, almost seems unsure of himself.
They seem to struggle on finding good points to make on this stand, as if it's something highly more than just a shaped piece of metal. "No screws, etc"-- as if that would be a feat to not have screws on something like this.

Not to be a negative nancy, just seems a bit silly to me in the way they talk about it being manufactured on the same machine Tesla makes their cars, la la la, but in actuality it is just a chunk of metal.

I would have preferred the base to be large enough to house either an Airport Extreme or Time Capsule underneath, but in playing devil's advocate with myself, I guess that could only really apply to the older generations of.

I switched to an adjustable VESA arm because the iMac sits too high - I cant imagine there is a lot of people out there crying out for a way to make it taller.

my 27" now sits 1cm off the table and I've never been comfier.

I'm getting about 58mm from two old text books. Sure, their initial price was a bit higher...
