Using Ipad as a Stylish Bookend

Since the launch of the much awaited Apple iPad I’ve saw all kind of things people do with this new gadget, and here is another interesting someone created. Designed by Dominic Wilcox the iBookend transforms your new iPad into a simple bookend. Right now the iBookend is just a concept, a really interesting concept I have to admit. Here are a few words about the iBookend from Dominic Wilcox, the man who came up with this idea : “My idea this week is an accessory to transform the whizzbang iPad into a simple practical object that may be useful around the home, in this case a bookend. I will probably buy an iPad at some point. It is a beautiful object and is apparently wonderful to use. I don’t think I’ll read books on it as a paper book has higher resolution text, is about four times lighter and doesn’t need a battery. The iPad will definitely be a success as an entertainment device, looking at photos, reading an e-magazine, watching a movie and visiting websites, but whether it will become a useful thing is a bit of an unknown. Hopefully the people who make the software apps will come up with something that turns the iPad from a delightful luxury item into an essential piece of equipment. Maybe one day we will look back and think ‘what exactly did we do before the iPad? or maybe we’ll think ‘Well, it made a stylish bookend.” – Source

    Not exactly practical! The moment you use your iPad the books fall off the shelf!

    The name alone gives me shivers, “ibookend.” Can we please stop with this dated and pointless prefix.

    As for the product, I guess after the novelty of the Ipad wears off, approx. 15mins after purchase, this is as good a use as any.
