The Steelie is a ball-and-socket style device that allows you position your iPad or iPhone any way you like for use around the house or in your car. A small metal ring – the “socket” – attaches to your iPhone or iPad with adhesive tape. Then, it can be magnetically attached to the “ball” which comes as either a stand, a car dashboard mount, or as a handy handheld attachment.
When the iPad or iPhone is attached to the ball, you can swivel it into any position you like.

Because the socket is attached to your iPad with adhesive, you won’t be able to put your iPad or iPhone in a case. However, this probably won’t bother people who primarily use their iPads around the house (cooking, etc) or for corporate use (podium, presentation, hospitality industry, recording studio, etc).
The hand-held socket comes in a number of different sizes, optimised for either holding the iPad close to your hand, or for setting it on tabletops in order to get a good viewing or typing angle.
