Customer experience strategy firm Simplicit Inc. has unveiled a new line of stand-alone preconfigured iPad kiosks, stands and designer kits for businesses, the company said in an announcement.
Key features include a device locking mechanism, Apple USB connector, flexible cable management, velvet screen protection and an acoustic sound amplifier. Three standard products are now available in addition to custom design services:
- SOMA Edition: Features a quarter-inch aluminum plate, shielded home button and beveled window.
- Lux: Features an open "C" design that features a small wedge ensuring stability for an iPad. Standard finishes come in black or silver.
- CoffeeTop: Features ability to be flipped to use in a portrait position and has an angular design that's intended for mobile use, playing music or for product demos when used with the integrated acoustic speaker amplifier.
According to Simplicit founder Ken Zaloom, the company created the stands while designing and implementing in-store digital experiences for high-end retailers.
"We couldn't find any elegant solutions at a price point that supported a wide scale rollout — so we designed our own," Zaloom said. "All of our stands will not only raise eyebrows, but can easily become a point of sale for any business."
