    We own the equipment that manufactures our Padholdr's in Seattle,WA. We are always looking for new ideas, and I would like to get some suggestions for new products. if we like the idea and decide to start making the product we will give the final unit out to the person with the idea.

    What kind of stands, cradles, holders, etc would you like to see made for the iPad?

    For the Ipad2 a stand that is magnetic like the cover. I have an ipod touch2g and a Ipad1 how about a cradle that can charge and sync both. Or a cradle that can hook up to a TV.

    I like the idea of having a magnetic cradle however I'm curious how the iPad can withstand the magnet.

    I am not a radio person at all. So when it comes to my car, I wouldn't mind something that extends out of the radio console area but is bolted and sturdy enough to simply place my iPad in with cover for my ride. (optional cords could be sold for audio hook up) to make more of a visual, something like the air condition clamps that are on the market. But this stand just bolts into the radio area and is more of a cradle, maybe some swivel option. I may simply be driving to school and want to hear a few songs. I can easily grab it out once I am parked without having to screw and unscrew.

    For a more permanent venture, I have also dreamed of having the kind of set up that cop cars have for their laptops. I just don't want it to bar over the passenger seat. There could be an upside down bolted L- rod in the passenger floor board that comes up and over the middle dash. One the L part would be a 12x12x3 box with output and charging set up for the iPad. (at about a 40 degree angle) There would also be a smaller charging port for a phone to be put in and take out at will. The top of the box would be a flap or something to lock and secure the iPad. [this would also depend greatly on the car]

    Obviously some more engineering needs to be done to these ideas for durability and protect and stuff, but on my search for car mounts, this is what I'm looking for. RAM has the closest car mount for me but no auxiliary outputs.

    I really love my Brookstone 360 stand. But I hate it when I travel and have to leave it at home because it's too big for my messenger bag. It would be great if I could remove the bottom base so it would all fit flat in my bag!

    How about a stand that will hold ipad 1-2 without having to remove whatever skin or thin cover you have on.

    We already make that. Works with iPad 1 and 2 with or without a case. We even make a iPad stand that works with the Otterbox case. Thanks though!

    I would like a stand that is lightweight, portable and provides variable viewing angles in both portrait and landscape orientations. :)

    I am desperately looking for a holder for the iPad that has suctions on the back of it that would then be able to stick to the tiles in my bathroom, so when I have a bath I can watch the television and catch up channels.

    That really would be fantastic!

    I don't think this is to wise as this will void warranty if moisture creeps in and apple loves pulling this one on customers

    As long as the case was waterproof then moisture wouldn't be able to get in, there are lots of television that are used in bathrooms already, and they all seem to be fine. It really would be fantastic if there was some sort of waterproof case that stuck to bathroom tiles! As long as it was all secure there would be no reason for there to be any water or steam etc getting in.

    With the iPad 2, there is need to incorporate the new feature in the design of the case.

    I like that idea, or you could play your iPad outside on something white. The kids could watch netflix, etc.

    I use a drycase for the iPad that is waterproof. It works really good and you can actually touch the screen with the case on. I was thinking of making a holder that you could use with that case in your tub.
