GoPad: The Most Interesting iPad Accessory In The World
Holding your iPad while standing or walking is a terrible waste of hand capacity. If a strap-on called the GoPad makes it through the KickStarter project, you can type on your iPad with both hands while looking like a complete dork.
Showing up with an iPad immediately earns you "hip" points, extra
credit if you're at a Starbucks. There's only one way to make yourself
even more interesting: Showing up with a GoPad,
a wearable iPad stand that you hang around your neck.
When you have the urge to type and walk at the same time, but your
iPhone 5 isn't enough, just whip out your iPad with attached GoPad.
Now you can prop your iPad against your body for typing and reading!
It's like a dental appliance for your belly!
When you no longer feel like looking at the screen, you simply snap
the iPad back into the GoPad's kickstand, and carry it off. When
you're ready to use it again, you just flip out the stand and your
iPad snaps into place, ready to use hands free!
The GoPad Kickstarter campaign has a goal of $75,000, with 43 days
to go, so there's a chance this product can become a reality. The best
part is that anyone who pledges even a dollar can watch the company VP
perform his "Dance of Joy." No.
