    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...

    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

    You need THIS. Magnets are included. ;) It may even run iPad apps. They demonstrate it running a slightly modified tank app.

    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.

    iPad mount...

    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.

    Here is my set up

    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.

    ?

    ....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'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.
