One of the major problems with stands that work to keep laptops, tablets, and smartphones elevated off your desk and in your line of sight is that you usually can't take them with you. Satechi today announced the R1 Aluminum Foldable Stand (US$39.99), a hinged stand that is strong enough to hold laptops in the perfect position, but folds down into a compact package for transportation.
Available in silver, gold, space gray and rose gold, the R1 works well in a variety of situations. Using an iPad Pro as a second screen for a MacBook Pro? The R1 offers a way to adjust that iPad so that the two screens are in alignment. Need a way to hold up an iPad or iPhone for gaming with an external controller? The R1 can do it -- and you can even take it with you on an airplane to help keep you entertained.
