    The only good thing about this design is the part which connects teh Display and the 2nd Arm. It's round, so I think this display will support pivot funtions. But I don't see any use for 2 seperate arms. Am I missing something?

    Maybe someone has brilliantly discovered that the best arm would have a shoulder, elbow and wrist . Go figure.

    What about a tablet that clips in to the case fixed to the arm? Looks like the casing has some depth to have a unit fixed into it (bluetooth keyboard is all you need)?

    I think the patent is just for the arm and not for the base...the pyramid is just a placeholder for what the real design became...the dome.

    Filed last October. Probably coincidental timing.

    The best arm is the one which can box a user. Given the fact that it has a 17/20 inch fist, the hardware will be fairly hard to beat.
