    I am wanting to attach my ipad in the car for my daughter to watch movies in the back seat. Any way to do this?

    Get a piece of string or twine. Just wrap it around the headrest. Put the ipad in the Apple case. Now just fold the front cover back and drape it over the twine/string. It will hang and look perfect.

    Don't count on iPadOne. He has been saying the same ole BS since day one, in fact its like an annoying broken record. There are actually several options already out there. Try a google search, in the mean time check this one out iPad Accessories/ Headrest Mount

    Actually it will not. If you look around the web and even this site you will find that many people are using this exact setup to mount the ipad in their car. If you use a small bungee cord the friction between the case and cord will keep it quite rigid.

    Tie an ipad to the headrest with twine and trust it to be stable. C'mon.

    Doesn't sound very stable, but it works.

    lol...but just wondering if the ipad can sustain large jolts from pot holes in the road or constant vibration while driving?

    oh and the ipad taped onto the cooker scene...wouldn't the gases and smoke harm the ipad? lol...

    Yes, my heart jumped a little when I saw that, and never see myself doing that.

    You'd be surprised how strong the modern velcros are. The wiki says it can handle up to 176 pounds and I believe they're talking about the traditional velcros, not the recent one which is a lot more stronger. (No residue either) Basically, it will take a lot more to exert that much force than say a little bump in the road. :)

    I was working for a machine shop developing and marketing RC Rock Crawling products. We developed a product that was dependent on Velcro, and I was a bit of a skeptic. We contacted Velcro and talked to them about what we needed.

    They sent us several of their heavy duty products and the load capabilities were incredible. We tested it to the extremes, and you would have thought we were using duct tape rather than Velcro.

    There's no doubt in my mind that Velcro is fully capable of supporting much more than the iPad. That being said, I cringed when I saw the iPad on the motorcycle tank in that Velcro video on YouTube. I know it will hold it, but if something crazy happened, my skin tingles thinking about the iPad bouncing and skidding across the asphalt.
