Robert M and Jonas (thanks) found was I was looking for. It is KUBI, a semi-robotic tablet stand (indiegogo) which allows the person at the other end to tilt and turn the tablet to look around in the room. It is 500 bucks, and even then you save 400, according to Amazon! Seems the list price is enough for two iPads. But in a corporate environment it could be useful, and the price no big deal.
(It's a pity they did not use it fully in the show, would have been fun to see it tilt and turn towards Amy when Bernadette called.)
In a pretty recent episode of The Big Bang Theory, this intriguing tablet stand was shown. I've never seen anything like it, and I'm quite curious. For example, what does it use power for? (It's not passed on to the tablet.)
I've googled and googled, but didn't find it. Does anybody know what it is? (It may even be a piece of lab equipment not originally meant for a tablet stand.)
The brunette is (from Wiki):
