Floater, a Neat Laptop Stand.

From the website:

If you connect your notebook computer to a large screen, at work or home, Floater is designed for you. It combines high technology with elegant styling. Close your MacBook pro, connect a keyboard, a screen and a mouse, and you have created a perfect working environment.
The Floater is machined from a single block of aluminum, which lends it great stability and optimum cooling power by spreading the heat around.
The two small panels around your computer are of minimal height and width, but sufficient to meet the product's two requirements; to hold your computer perfectly, and to let you set it up as easily as possible.

I have to agree that does look really overpriced for a stand. Then again I do use a footstool for mine. Besides, the name of this thing isn't really a smart one. "The Floater"? :p

Seriously, this is for posers

"The reason for this great stability is the precision, to a tenth of a millimeter, used to calculate the right gap between the two panels so Floater and MacBook Pro fit together snugly...And, since every MacBook Pro is unique, we have left 2mm room for adjustment where the panels join."

Ha ha ha. Useful precision.

And then you have to MANUALLY connect cables!!

Can someone explain which problem this is the answer to?

The biggest problem with "The Floater" (aside from the name!) is that it keeps the lid closed; if you're using an external monitor with the MacBook Pro, it can operate in dual screen mode. It'd be stupid to keep the lid closed like that.

I've got a PowerBook G4 that I use with an external monitor when at work, and the PB sits on a stand that keeps the two monitors at the same height, and doesn't use any more desk space than "The Floater".

Looks like all of Balmuda's products are over-priced & over-engineered.
