    Hi all, just thought I would start a thread after a search shown no results. I have an iPad 2 and am now in that crazy connect to anything I can stage :)
    I'm looking at anything interesting that connects to the iPad, either through irda, Bluetooth, wifi, USB anyway you have found to connect and maybe what functions you get. Try and include any photos of the product, cost, features etc.

    I have just connected my iPad sound to my Bluetooth sound system and it works great as surround sound. Samsung home cinema system HT-Z310.
    I love anything remote controlled too :) so it would be great to see anything like this.

    I'm interested if anyone has ever found anything worthwhile online, also with the Japanese technology being so advanced have you ever come across anything novelty or super cool item that we wouldn't necessarily find over here? I would love to go down a Tokyo market with my iPad and find everything that connects to my iPad :) bet there is some crazy things to attach.

    Anyway you can add anything to the thread no matter how interesting like printers, keyboards, USB things anything but it would be great to see any pics of the item too.
    Thanks all.

    How about this? LG Electronics BT speaker bar. They sound great, but at $400 a bit steep for me.

    Looks sweet though how about this icable.

    iCable for iPad, iPhone and iPod allows you to switch between standard and full charge mode. Full Charge mode disables the Sync process, thus allowing the device to charge its batteries at full speed, as if connected to a wall outlet. You will never need this pesky AC adapter again!

    $27.90 on sale also

    How about this projector?

    Product blurb: Getting people to crowd over your iPhone to show them the cool video you took of the chance encounter with a ten-car pileup on the highway or a celebrity sighting can get really difficult. The screen is small, and upside-down video doesn't really convey the best atmosphere - everybody has to pile toward one side of the iPhone.

    What if there's a way to project your videos onto the wall? What if there's a low-cost way to do that? A simple dongle that you plug into the dock connector of your phone, point to a nearby white wall, and turn the lights down for a community screening? This device is that.

    You can even plug it into another device with an RCA cable, and it comes with a tripod for your iPhone so that you don't have to keep holding it up.

    $248 though is a bit hefty.

    I have a wireless keyboard for mine. Don't use it as much as I thought I would.

    Was it specific for the iPad or a general wireless keyboard for any device?

    I have a ZaggMate Blue Tooth Keyboard for over two years. It has worked very well and doubles as a carrying case. I use it with my iPad everyday. Recently I started working out with my iPad, so I found a Motorola S10 HD stereo headphones designed "to go from working out to hanging out." It works really well with my iPad original. Amazing headphones! Both keyboard and headphones work on the iPad2 and even the new iPad.

    I have the Apple BT keyboard, but you said third party, right?

    Also have the Jabra Easygoing BT headset. Works well with Skype and FaceTime.

    I stream live TV from a tuner card my PC to my iPad in the kitchen and to get more audio volume I use a small FM transmitter plugged into the earphone socket. This gives me plenty of volume through the kitchen radio.

    Sure, Bluetooth speakers would have been cooler but it's what I have on hand and it works well.

    It's not out yet but iv been waiting for I shower to be on sale , you can stream your music to a waterproof speaker in the shower from your iPad.there are also health add on to the iPad/iPhone, weighing scales that work with it and a blood pressure monitor and glucose meter for diabetics.all appeal to me just wish they were not so pricey for what they are.nearly forgot to mention the Logitech harmony link which I'm waiting for them to release in the uk for what seems like forever

    I stream daily to one of my Jambox Bluetooth speakers as I shower. The sound is good, and I prefer speakers that I can use anywhere. I don't find need for a speaker in the shower with me. YMMV.

    Lol I used to put mine on the surround sound and played it from the other room but I have found it seems to sound louder and clearer when I just place it on my wooden toilet seat?? :) it kinda of amplified the sound a little bit, all I need now is a long stick with a finger on it to change the track once I'm in the shower haha
