The Nite Ize Steelie Kits are an innovate way to create a mini stand for a tablet, e-reader, or other device.
Make a stand and get a handle on your tablet, e-reader, or other electronic device with the Steelie HobKnob Kit.
With its ingenious magnetic design, the Steelie HobKnob Kit is a fun, innovative way to create both a handle and mini stand for your tablet, e-reader, or other device. Simply peel and attach the Steelie Tablet Socket to the center of the back of your tablet or its rigid case. The Steelie Tablet Socket Component is a strong, machined aluminum base containing a powerful, circular magnet ringed and centered with flexible silicon and backed with 3M®'s VHB™ foam adhesive tape. The Steelie HobKob Handle Component - a specially engineered aluminum knob topped with a grippy rubber ball that fits securely around the socket, attaches to it magnetically, and makes a perfect handle so you can easily share your tablet, show videos, and give presentations without obscuring the screen or fumbling in the process. And, when it's propped on any flat, smooth surface, the HobKnob makes a useful angled stand, in either landscape or portrait, for typing, viewing, reading, or video chatting. As easy to detach as it is to snap on, the HobKnob fits easily in a pocket, and is as mobile as you are.
As an added plus, with the Tablet Socket attached to the back of your device, it will magnetically connect to other convenient metal surfaces - refrigerator doors, steel shelving, stove hoods, filing cabinets, lockers, and toolboxes -so you can dock it securely and keep it accessible and viewable wherever you go.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
