iPad + iBracket = iKiosk

To all you iPad pessimists out there who demand logic to be spoonfed to you as to why an iPad is functional for you: Here’s another product that creates a new use for the iPad.

I’ll admit that I didn’t see my value in the device until last week when it hit me how I could absolutely revolutionize the industry I operate in with the iPad, and inventions like the iBracket just keep giving me more functional purposes.

The iBracket is a simple metal (wood and plastic soon too) frame for the iPad that makes it a kiosk for museums, galleries, waiting rooms, etc. Though the price is pretty steep at $349, it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than getting a custom made touch screen kiosk. You just slide the iPad in, hook it up to the speakers, and mount it.

I can even see people using this as a security system. Wifi to a camera at the front door? See pessimists?! Possibilities are endless, you just need to think…
