View Full Version : iPad homemade engineering solutions? Mounting for car? Home? Etc.

Hope this isn't a duplicate...haven't seen a collection of ideas to help manage the HOMEMADE ideas.

I did find this on a search: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=860208&page=11

But I really want to make something or find something that is already out there. A lot of the solutions are not very mobile.

Currently, I am using an inCase Grip from the Apple store...and then I put the iPad in a 12" netbook bag. It has two front facing pockets...and there is plenty of room. It has two handles. But I want to come up with something that is a little less awkward to carry, but not murse like.

But I also want to Jerry Rig something for the car.

Anyway, so, if you have MADE something, or come up with an non-ipad specific solution, can you please put a photo up?

Well, I posted the details for a homemade stand I have made a couple of for the computer room and the kitchen:

I have also worked out that my 2004 Honda CRV has a perfect spot for the iPad and has been really helpful navigating...not so much turn by turn as I have an in-dash GPS...but to explore areas for photos, especially along the water ways, and referencing other stuff on the go from stars (literally, the moon and the stars) to restaurants, etc.

Also, I have created a spread sheet to help keep a list of the various accessories and threads about specific topics:
