I’ve noticed a recent flurry of anticipatory iPad products. I was thinking of weighing in on Quirky with an iPad case of my own. I feel like one of the key places to use an iPad is in the kitchen. Currently, I often sit my laptop on my kitchen counter so I can browse recipes and techniques while I cook. It’s dangerous though, and I’ve had several near-misses (shouldn’t they be called near-hits?) with all manner of liquid. So, here’s the idea:
1. The iPad case should keep the iPad safe from all liquids.
2. It would be great if the case were heat and cold proof. Perhaps you could make it out of the same stuff they make the Ove Glove out of.
3. The case should be dishwasher safe. You’re already in the kitchen, you have a filthy case, shove it in the dishwasher. It would be absolutely sick if you could put it in the dishwasher with the iPad in it although this is not necessary.
4. It could be useful to have a magnet in the back of the case so you could mount the iPad to your fridge.
That’s the idea. I hope someone makes it. Until then I’ll keep using my food journal, books, and laptop in various unwieldy combinations.
