I was thinking of making an iPad stand for my mother. Did you have some plan for making the stand ? Are there some plans online ?

Thanks Roofner

I was thinking of making a iPad stand for my mother and if it works well, maybe I´ll more to sell at craft fair in my tiny town before Christmas.

I have look at some design online but I´m not sure which is the best solution, balance etc.

How much electronic do you intend to put in your project ?

as roofner suggests: check out the current issue of Wood, they have an iPad case as a feature project. Not a stand, but pretty cool for iPad owners just the same.

I meant electronics in the stand itself like amplifier, USB connection, charger etc.

:-) Sorry

I´m not English speaking—I think the only plug is on the “short” side of the iPad.

If I find a good design and simple which is easy to make, maybe I can make some money selling them. Instead of making some typical children´s toys.

Don’t have any plans for ya but I think it would be cool to see some small speakers built right in to the case. I was entertaining that idea a while back but got too busy to start. There are some decent small, full range speakers you can find online. Good luck. I’ll be looking out for your project!!

I think this is a great idea, Dan. Placing small full range speakers built right in to the case or an iPad stand is cool!

Thanks, Surfside. When my project list dies down I might give this project a go. We’ll see. I did get my wife an iPad for Christmas last year so I have one to experiment with.
