This little gadget from Woodford Design called the FridgePad is all over the Internet today, with sites such as 9to5Mac taking a real shine to it. The FridgePad is the work of UK design firm Woodford Design, and will go on sale at Amazon in Autumn 2010 for £49. Basically, it's a way of fixing your iPad onto your fridge, just like a giant fridge magnet. Although for some of us, the thought of having our iPad in the kitchen and right near the area where all manner of drinks and foodstuffs could be splashed and spilled is enough to make us queasy, I've also read about plenty of people who like using their iPad as a recipe book and often have it in their kitchen. I guess it's similar in concept to those fridges that have flat-screen TV monitors built into the door.
Woodford says that the FridgePad is cast and machined from high-quality aluminium, and finished in anodised silver, with more custom powder-coated painted finishes on the way, in cream, white and black. It has been specially designed to hold your iPad snuggly in place, with fast and easy clip-in and clip-out action. They'll even future proof it for you by throwing in replaceable corner clips, so that if and when Apple changes the iPad's design, you can buy new corner clips that will fit with the new shape. You can't order the FridgePad yet, but you can register your interest at Woodford's site if it sounds like something that would appeal to you.
