The Structure Sensor actually won't be available until the middle of next year, but the company is launching the product first for developers who order it via Kickstarter.

A Los Angeles entrepreneur and app developer launched the Smarter Stand on the community fundraising site Kickstarter hoping to raise $10,000 by August 13. But within 24 hours he’d already raised $10,000 and funding by individual contributors stands at $78,952 as of today.
In a promotional video Smarter Stand inventor Dotan Saguy said the idea came to him when he was trying to use his iPad in the kitchen propped up against a jar of jam. “I thought if I could just isolate some of the folds in the cover, [...]
