Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Soccer Cars
My boys and I are also huge fans of Psyonix's smash-hit video game, Rocket League, where you pilot a rocket-powered vehicle in a futuristic arena to knock a giant soccer ball into the opposing goal. Sounds ridiculous? That's what I said -- several hours before I finally had to turn off and go to bed. Speed, finesse, timing, wits, physics ,, and now LEGO.
Spotted at Developer Conference!
As a software developer, having a secondary screen for docs, log-tailing, terminal etc. is super handy.
Big thanks to fellow LEGO fans and attendees of this year's Angular developer conference (do you like good web apps? You can probably thank Angular for the best ones!) who spotted me using this in a few coding workshops and weren't too shy to ask and cast a vote for my project.
Idle Hands and Unexpected Uses
Although it was not intentionally designed to be a tablet-gaming support, QuickStand puts tablets and large smartphones at the perfect height to rest hands while using virtual joystick thumb controls:
March Break and a great opportunity for in-flight testing (and core math skills, sorry kids) and probably the only time I have ever looked forward to turbulence ... which QuickStand survived just fine, planted and rock solid through bumps, shimmies and shakes holding an iPhone and iPad Mini.
Rough handling in a small, jam-packed carry on was not a problem, with the antenna securely locked into the frame sideways (see laptop-bag photo in gallery) but was a little concerned about it popping off in cramped airplane cabin, so tucked it back into the frame after taking this photo. As the most optional element in the design, it could be left behind or left out completely but will work on a more secure mount than the single stud it relies on currently for those that really want a stylus (yes, DIY touch-capacitive solutions exist for this.)
Thanks to early supporters, blog mentions and retweets!
