Politicians love it. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t leave home without it. Super investor John Doerr sneaks it into church and coffee shops use it as a cash register. But imagine the magic when the iPad meets this other great invention of our times, Velcro. Watch this video from Jesse Rosten and find out. As they say…roll the tape!

  1. Great idea, to some it may look pretty amazing, seing the iPad useful in so many ways. But let’s remember that it still is a battery powered device. After 9-10 hours of picture sliding there will be no more power left and you’ll have to take the iPad off the wall and recharge it.

    Just what the world needs!

    Another bunch of people looking at their iPads instead of paying due attention to driving properly.

    Some people can’t walk and chew bubble gum while on a walk at the BEST of times. What makes you think they’ll be able to handle glancing at an iPad and driving their motorcycle/automobile any better?

    Too bad you couldn’t watch this video on an iPad.. and the iPad doesn’t have GPS so mounting it in your car is basically not very useful.

    Oh and mounting it above your stove makes for a cute video but have fun cleaning the grease off and watching the heat damage it.

    Am I a killjoy? Maybe, but face it – half the uses in that video don’t stand up to actual use.

    Love the motorcycle tank mount !

    I usually stick my paper maps with planned routed highlighted to my tank but will look if iPad Navigation will replace.

    Garmin should be worried.
