Sphere Video Thumb

Say hello to the award-winning Armodilo Original Sphere, the desktop iPad and tablet enclosure and kiosk stand with a playful, quirky personality that lightens up any space. No matter which way you turn it, Sphere is a secure, fun and inviting tablet POS stand and kiosk enclosure. That’s the beauty of its award-winning design, and that’s why Sphere is the most innovative free-standing interactive touch-point on the market today. You can use the compact, yet inviting, design of the Sphere to enhance your kiosks using a wide variety of tablets up to 12.5” thanks to our Tablet Fit Kits™.

The Armodilo Sphere tablet and iPad kiosk enclosure features a secure, fully-enclosed ABS plastic tablet housing, fully-integrated cable routing system for a cable-free look, Wi-Fi signal transparency, the ability to be set up in either landscape or portrait mode, and a full 90° range of motion for the perfect sharable screen.

For its ability to make every space in which it is installed more fun and inviting, the Sphere won the EXHIBITOR Buyer’s Choice Award in 2014. Wherever you place it, Sphere invites the whole world to engage with you.

Interaction on Both Sides of the Counter

The Sphere is a multi-purpose tablet and iPad enclosure and kiosk that flips over easily to offer full interactivity on both sides of the counter. The intuitive design allows quick and smooth access for all customer interactions, including PIN entry and signatures at point of sale as a tablet POS stand.

Armodilo's engineers designed the Sphere to make tablet flipping seamless and smooth each and every time, making this one of the most durable and secure desktop iPad kiosk enclosures in the world.

Point-of-sale, Redesigned

The Sphere’s design combines playful looks with robust construction to create an unparalleled interactive display experience, making it an excellent enclosure to install as a custom branded desktop-mounted tablet or iPad point of sale (POS) kiosk with an optional card reader. Sphere is tough enough for high traffic, commercial settings in any industry from retail to healthcare.

Stay Sphere, Stay!

Sphere isn't a lightweight, it won't just roll away. We designed it to be robust and heavy enough for everyday interactions, it's meant to stay put, but if a more permanent mounting solution is required, Sphere's included hardware can be used to affix it to any counter or surface up to 2" thick to create a secure kiosk with your iPad or tablet.

Built For Interaction and Versatility

The Original Sphere is a signal transparent tablet and iPad enclosure which lets Wi-Fi or Bluetooth signals flow unimpeded between the tablet and any peripherals. The innovative design hides all cabling inside the stand for an elegant, clutter-free look. Better yet, our Tablet Fit Kits make it easy to upgrade your technology without replacing your kiosk enclosures.

Tested To the Limits

The tilt mechanics behind the Armodilo Sphere and Tilt tablet mounts are designed using high-quality, proven components that have been cycle tested beyond 20,000 movements. The smooth movement and silent operation of our tilt mechanisms are just one reason why Armodilo products are raved about all over the world.

Optional Rotational Base

Not content with just one axis of rotation, we’ve gone all the way by developing a unique accessory for the Sphere. The optional built-in Rotational Base allows for easier positioning and movement of your iPad or tablet kiosk. The rotation is an optional add-on, so please ask your sales representative for more information.

The rotational base add-on for the Armodilo Sphere provides unique movement options as a table mount tablet display.
