OK I might be a little pre-emptive on this one but has anyone seen a wall mount for the iPad. I am getting one for our kitchen and love the idea of mounting it on the wall for cooking and keeping the counters clear. Of course something that would allow to be detachable to bring elsewhere would be cool also.

Maybe I should start designing something...

this could go in the actual accessories thread, though.

OK this is a concept with no production. I thought this could go in the accessorie area, but what I am looking for is similar to the modulR system...which it names implies its not an accessorie but a system. Ah marketing.

I thought to create an individual topic only because it was explicit to a particular need. The accessories area is getting filled with all sorts of cases and protection, not the topic I was choosing to create.

That's why I'm buying a dock. I figure you can stand it upright on the dock and slide it anywhere on the counter if you're trying to follow a recipe from the web. When you're done, just slide the dock out of the way and reconnect to power for charging.

Yes I would also like a wall mount for my iPad. The only product or concept I have been able to find is the modulR. I am sure there will be more to choose from this summer.

Combined with an iPad-optimized Remote App a wall mount would be a very cool way to control my iTunes library and Airport Express speakers. :cool: And maybe maybe maybe OS4 will come with an updated lock screen (I am almost certain it won't though!) with weather widgets or similar. That way the iPad, when not used actively, would serve as a perfect control or info panel for our home. It would also keep the iPad out of reach from cats and two-year olds! :D

I would imagine that could be adapted to mount to a wall pretty easily. I personally don't like the look of it and I'm sure if you wait a month or so after the release there will be many other choices.

You need THIS (http://alwaysinnovating.com/touchbook/gallery_video2.htm). Magnets are included. ;) It may even run iPad apps. They demonstrate it running a slightly modified tank app.

This is what you need:

Has a wall mount, picture frame mount, car mount, and yes -- even a shoulder mount

ugh. sorry. missed that. :eek:

in regards to the comments which are evidently in regards to modulR .. it isn't a concept with no production ... from what i've been told, they're hoping to have products shipping w/in 90 days of April 3rd.

I've been looking for a wall mount too, as I'm gonna use them all over the house for Crestron touchpanels.. Looks like you can mount it to just about anything with this one.

It looks like the mount above your post could attach to this mount to make an Ipad mount. Says that mount attaches to any standerd flat panel wall mount and it looks like the screw holes would match up.

I just use my dock in the corner of my kitchen, so I can see my allrecipes app. Really doesnt take up that much room and is movable.

Maybe mounting an iPad case or cover to the wall and sliding the iPad in and out of that. Hard case would prol be better though.

I think this needs to be a bit wider in order to avoid an iPad accident. Maybe if someone affixed a business card holder to the wall?

I just used some wood and that small flat screen mount and in about an hour had this up. The mount is about $14 ant BestLink Netware.

I plan on using it in a dental lab for porcelain work.

Haha just get yourself a dedicated display for that instead. I mean come on.

....Perhaps you know more than then rest of us as to his particular needs but it seems a bit presumptuous to say that a dedicated display would be a better solution. I am assuming that if he went to all this trouble, he did so because he felt this was in fact a better solution for HIM.

i like the diy aspect to some of these mounts, but you guys should check out www.modulrcase.com - they have a new wallmount that's affordable and well-engineered. photos and prices were just announced.

I'm not sure they announced much. There's no pictures of the wallmount, just renderings of it. I'd be a tad skeptical, until they have some real pictures on their website.

This is a great solution as you can move the "display" (iPad) around in and out of your office and such when you're done with your patient. I like the idea.

Check out this thread... It's a $3 solution, removable, and after seeing his photos, made a believer out of me...

Here's more information on our product...if you're interested. It's a wood/aluminum stand that can easily mount to a wall.

This wall mount is awesome! You gotta check it out. It apparently has an articulating arm that can extend 24", far enough to use my iPad in my bed.

This mock up I mad was to enable the use of the Apple iPad case (the best case I have seen so far.) At the porcelain bench in the lab or anywhere where the iPad is used mostly as a visiual aid this set up great. The dental lab is a dusty place and with no keyboard the iPad is a slick self contained tool. I have made one for another lab guy and plan on making two more. Someone just has to come up with a useful patient photo filing app for the iPad.

Look at the modulr system. Pretty sweet setup for $100 if you are looking for a case, stand, and wall mount.

I like this wall-mount because it doesn't require a case:
