Quirky (http://www.quirky.com/products) has released the Cradle, a community developed iPad lap desk. Its minimalist bent design is constructed of sustainable bamboo plywood, also known as Plyboo. It has an integrated circular plate, made from matte, soft-touch plastic, that allows you to rotate your iPad between portrait and landscape views.

The underside of the US$52.50 desk is lined with a foam cushion with woven covering that rests on your lap for added comfort. The compact Cradle measures 21inches wide by four inches tall by 13 inches deep by a quarter-inch thick.

The Cradle is the 39th product designed and developed by the Quirky community since Quirky’s launch on June 2, 2009. Quirky gives everyone the chance to get product ideas out of their heads and onto shelves. Each week, Quirky’s community collaborates to select and produce one new product idea.
