    Hehe, cool video.

    But I wonder if anyone can see it when actually using an iPad?

    I'm sure this was all meant tongue-in-cheek. :D

    I didn't know, Vimeo seems to be kind of hit and miss on my iPhone.

    Actually yes it is. The industrial strength stuff can easily handle 20lbs. The pad is under 2 lbs. It would work like a charm.

    I have velcroed radios to my dash and you would think they were bolted on.

    Actually, thinking about it now, it wouldnt work because i keep my iPad in the apple case, the velcro would have to be on the inside of the case so when i fold it over that will be the back side. But when i close it the velcro might scratch the glass.


    Unless someone has some other idea on how it would work with the case :)

    saw this a few days ago, superb quality and great editing, just a cool movie, in answer to "is Velcro that good"
    All depends on what quality you buy, same as most stuff, if you buy your Velcro from the £1 store, then I wouldn't trust anything on it.

    Now if you buy proper Velcro then yup, I would feel comfy doing most of whats in this video, in fact some are dam cool ideas.

    Just put the soft side on the cover. If you have a screen protector on the ipad it should be fine.

    Velcro wouldn't scratch the glass either...you will be surprised at how hard it will be to physically scratch the glass front...go watch the youtube vids of dogs and cats scratching the front, and every comment says you must be mad....nope,,doesn't do a thing.

    So ever since I saw the YouTube video of ipad+Velcro I have every bedroom, bathroom, shower, car, kitchen, and everything else you could think of covered in Velcro. Its pretty damn awesome!!!
