Hands-Free eBook Reading

Between ebooks and ipads, these are the devices that people are asking for this holiday season. Jerry Hagan hopes that people will also consider his product to be a necessary future accessory reports Coloradoan.com.

Hagan designed two separate products: the Xero-g and the cradler. The Xero-g, named after zero gravity, is a 5-foot metal stand that has an arm extending from it with multiple pivot points, with the cradler holding the e-book device.

The cradler is a felt-covered holder with a stand for the device on a table or any flat surface. The devices range from $59 for the small cradler to $349 for an iPad Xero-g.

He came up with the Xero-g idea while working on his laptop in bed and envisioning some way to just have the machine hover in front of him.

Hagan, who has a degree in gemology, said he was looking for a new business venture two years ago when the building design industry, which he was working in at the time in Denver, slowed.

“This had literally just come to me a time when I was looking for something to do to make a living,” Hagan said.

The first round of 750 Xero-g’s are in production, and Mohrlang and Hagan hope to capture the e-device market early next year when the product will be made available online.
