This iPad stand fixed my shitty video call camera angles


I take a ton of video calls with my coworkers using the webcam perched on top of the external monitor in my office. But when I’m on a virtual date or meeting friends, I don’t want to be locked in my home office or sitting at my desk. And it wouldn’t hurt to be framed up close and without lens distortion.

That’s where Twelve South’s HoverBar Duo comes in. This is a smartly designed stand that supports all iPads and works in different orientations, so you can use your tablet hands-free to draw, watch videos, or follow recipe instructions. I’m especially happy with the way it works for video calls.


The HoverBar Duo is designed to work with iPads of all sizes, even with thick cases attached; you can also insert phones larger than 5 inches into the clip. The articulated arm can extend to a length of 38.1 cm (15 inches).

The HoverBar Duo is very flexible, so you can configure it however you want
