Remote Control Holder Mod Stores Tablet Close At Hand

If you spend most of your iPad time lounging on your couch or in bed, this simple IKEA hack will keep your favorite tablet stowed right at your finger tips.

IKEA’s inexpensive remote control holder, the $4.99 Flort, is easy to hack from a remote holster into an tablet holder. You simply flip it around, sew up the edge of the back flap, and holster your tablet in it–your tablet fits all the way inside, in the above image the iPad is tucked in semi-precariously to demonstrate it sliding inside.
