Astropad, known for its Astropad Studio software and Luna Display dongle, today announced the launch of its latest project called Darkboard. Darkboard is a lightweight drawing surface designed for use with your iPad that lets you sketch and draw in an ergonomic way wherever you are.

Weighing in at 1.4 pounds, the Darkboard is made from a rigid foam material that protects your arms and wrists while providing comfort and support. According to Astropad, Darkboard is ideal for use in situations where the best ergonomic settings are not possible, such as sofas and beds.

It has a polycarbonate frame that holds the iPad at any angle, allowing each user to prop it up in whatever way is most comfortable for them. Astropad also added his 1mm of space between the iPad’s screen and the edge of the foam body to ensure the iPad stays safe if Darkboard is dropped.

There is a cutout for the camera, access to the charging port, and a pocket for the Apple Pencil. The Darkboard measures 18 inches long, 14 inches wide and 1 inch thick and is designed with a textured surface to improve grip and a grooved handle.

Darkboard comes in two sizes, one that fits the 3rd generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro and above, and the other that fits the 11-inch ‘iPad Pro’ and iPad Air models. It also supports future iPads released between now and shipping.

Astropad is about to launch Darkboard on Kickstarter, where early backers can purchase it for $79, 20% off retail price. The order will be delivered in March 2023.
