Anyone planning MOUNTING iPad in special place?

    I know I won't shut up about iPad in the car :eek: But what about you? You have any special place in mind for it? I LOVE custom jobs on things and would really like to hear what you plan on doing with this gadget besides carrying it around.

    Seems like allot people are just planning on mounting it.

    Really? Haven't heard this from anyone here yet. I look forward to hearing what ideas they have.

    Where? The bathroom?

    Behind the bike sheds was always a special place for me.

    Actually I have a few places I'd love to mount it. The first and most important one would be having this as a 9" navigation system in my car.

    The second would be to have a stand that is attached to my bed that swivels out and over so the pad is floating over me like a monitor, yet is in arms reach so I can still control and use it.

    Ooh, loving the bed-swively-thing.
    Maybe some sort of collarbone-mounting-device where you could have it a few inches in front of your face would be nice as well, but that MIGHT be going overboard...

    I like the idea of it being a kind of 'Bed entertainment system', dare I call it that :D. I.E. stuff like EyeTV Live, Jaadu VNC, Youtube, Mail, and web in your bed.

    actually, just thinking about it. It'd be a VERY cool home music system. Mount the iPad onto the wall and connect it to the home speakers around the house. Then you've got a home music system-kiosk kinda thing.

    It's not something I'd do but I just thought of that in about 10 seconds, give some time and I'm sure there will be some crazy things done with this!

    I would mount one on my forearm so it's EVERYWHERE I go. :D

    What's with all the bed stuff.

    iPad, bed, girl (optional), lube, video, need I say more :D

    Special places? Mounting? Custom jobs? ...Just what kind of thread is this?

    Nice idea!

    It would be cool to control tv,lights,window blinds,fans, etc sort of all in one remote that can browse the web and is a book reader.

    I would mount it in the toilet where crap belongs.:p

    I thought it didn't have the GPS chip?

    Ditto, it's going to be pretty poor as a nav device without the GPS. I was a little surprised they even showed the map functionality during the introduction.

    The iphone 3gs does great with nav with the gps. Other versions, not so much.

    I'm going to get an app that has constantly changing faces, tie it around my neck and wear it for Halloween. :D

    The 3G model probably does. The tech specs say that the 3G model has "assisted GPS", which is the same phrase that the iPhone tech specs use for its GPS.
  21. macrumors member

    I am thinking of mounting it in my bedroom on a wall like in the middle of the room.
    But make it so it's removable of course :)
  22. macrumors 68000


    In the car!
  23. macrumors regular

    iPad in the kitchen

    I want to mount it either on the outside or inside of a cabinet. Mostly use for recipes. Eye level.
