My first idea was a Laptop Stand that attaches to a cymbal stand, but was turned down by the USPTO for prior art. Good thing too because it wasn't very easy to manufacture.
Which led me to come up with something a little more stealth for an MP3 player. This is a prototype made from a plumbing cap and some glue.
Around that time, Apple was introducing this new device called an "iPad" which I was able to have added to my utility patent.
