Twelve South's HiRise provides eye-level iMac viewing

Mac accessory maker Twelve South has introduced the HiRise for iMac, a stand that lets users elevate their desktop Mac monitors to a better viewing level.

The $80 device is designed to support all generations of Mac that have an L-shaped stand, including the largest 27-inch displays on the latest generation of iMacs. The stand itself looks a little bit like an older, metal-shelled hard drive—a reminder of the days when drives and displays were separate components of the same computer.

The HiRise also offers storage space.

The inside of the HiRise, though, is a shelf containing six slots, allowing users to slide the iMac stand in at the precise level to provide optimum screen viewing. The remaining space can be used for storage—everything from a backup hard drive or Mac Mini, or an area for more mundane items such as wallet and keys.

HiRise also accommodates Apple-compatible cinema and Thunderbolt displays with L-shaped stands. If you have a Thunderbolt display as a second screen, sliding your iMac into the second HiRise slot will align it exactly with the height of the external monitor, providing a consistently level display sightline along your field of view.

Installation and use of the HiRise is demonstrated in the video below. The device is available for immediate shipping.
