Wooden accessories like native keychains, ashtrays, lamp, tables, figurines are pretty popular in the Philippines. Carrol Wilhelm probably got this idea to design a Wooden iPad Stand. But his design is not just a wooden stand/dock, it boosts the volume to a considerable level. The design was well thought and research was conducted thoroughly before this was developed. No need to buy external speakers for your iPad!
See for yourself.
The iPad Stand will cost you around $39.95 @ Etsy. 40 bucks for a piece of wood with 4 holes @_@
