    Talking Idea: Homemade iPad Stand

This would be great way to compliment your desktop computer with an iPad that has a full range of motion (up,down,left,right,back,forward) hovering right there where you need it. And it could be easily rigged for audio and power. Am I making sense?

    I'm still trying to figure out how to properly mount an iPad to the stand. A car mount with a few custom screw holes and a u-bolt would probably work (but expensive). Unlike my picture, you'd need a light stand that fastened to the edge of your desk to counterbalance the weight of an iPad.

    Hopefully the attachment works. I might be losing my mind waiting for the 3g to come out, or it might be an alright idea. Who knows..


    3 more days and counting!
    You clearly give me an idea i will develop (even just for the fun)

    Weird!???!

    Anyway, about your reference to a table lamp. I've had the same idea about a similar lamp but it's on a floor stand. I use such a lamp for reading but I can't find another one to transform in an iPad stand.

    I'll just buy a car stand from iPadone's store and fix it to a microphone boom.

    Not certain but maybe the thread ended up in the DIY Section of the Forum, possibly.

    That's about it. I want to install that on a microphone stand such as


    I could install that holder next to a sofa or a bed. Then I could read myself to sleep without fear of dropping the iPad.

    I may make a wood stand to hold my iPad while it is being charged. It might be fun. I could make one out of aluminum that might be more appropriate, but I want polished wood.
