TriPad frees up hands and laps, helps professionals in the field

Boosting productivity with one device

As a frequent traveler, mobile worker, photographer or videographer (novice or professional), you know how much equipment and how many supplies you carry around with you while you work. Your bag, lap, and hands can easily become cluttered and full. As a result, this can greatly limit your productivity. And that’s not even mentioning the time you spend at home or in your studio looking over, editing, and tweaking the photos and videos you’ve taken throughout your daily or weekly sessions. Whether photography or videography is a career or a hobby, there is a simple product that can streamline your workflow and save you precious time and energy.

While the TriPad looks pretty basic, it’s all centered on practical use. Basically, it’s a tripod for your camera that has an attachable table for your laptop. Off of the laptop tray, TriPad even has a cup holder on one side and a flat small extendable tray that’s a perfect fit for your laptop mouse. Assembling the TriPad is as easy as it gets. Everything basically just clips on and slides right out. This means that you don’t have to waste precious time setting it up when you could be getting the right shot. According to TriPad’s website, it only takes 1.7 seconds to put together.

Free up your lap – genius

This one simple tool will keep your laptop and other tools off your lap as you work. It also allows you to see your photos or videos right away on a larger screen than what is found on your camera. This means you can adjust camera settings and the subjects of your photos because you’ll recognize if there’s a problem sooner than if you didn’t have your laptop readily accessible for referencing. When you have a stable spot for your laptop and your drink, you free your hands so you can focus on your work.

With continual advancements and complicated innovations, TriPad is a breath of fresh air. Its simplicity and utilitarian construction strangely puts it in line with its more complicated competition. With life becoming increasingly convoluted and intricate, maybe it’s time for some minimalistic tools for making everyday work tasks as simple as they should be.

    Can I use the Tri-Pad (for tripods) without the triangle part and have a “traveler”
    variant or do I require a separate talbe for each use.
