Double Up: Mounting Your iPad On Other Stuff

Less is more? No way. When it comes to fast, shiny and sleek tech, we believe you can't have too much of a good thing. These iPad mount designers believe it too; each one of these tablet mounts on to another device in your home tech arsenal for double the fun.

Whether you need a second monitor, a kitchen workstation or you just want to jam out to Pandora on the treadmill, each of these mounts have you—and your home tech—covered.

You can mount your iPad to:

...Your Mac
The HoverBar friom Twelve South (makers of a bevy of sleek Mac-cessories) lets you rig your iPad to your desktop Mac. A silicone-lined clamp clips on to your Mac's stand without leaving a mark, and its adjustable arm lets you move and tilt your iPad to the top or sides of your main monitor. Use it as a control panel for instant weather and news, or use an app like Air Display to covert your iPad into a monitor extension.

The HoverBar fits all iPad 2 models and attaches to all iMacs and Apple Displays with an L-shaped desk stand. Get it here for $79.99.

...Your Treadmill
The Stance iPad Stand in the works on Quirky will surely answer any techie gym rat's prayers. It securely fits into any standard cupholder, so you can mount your iPad to a stationery bike while you check Facebook, then move right along to the treadmill and your favorite iBook without a worry. It's telescoping arm moves and locks in wide range of angles, including portrait and landscape display mode, and there's plenty of room to store your iPad's power cord and headphones within the cup storage compartment.

Stance isn't yet released, but if you can't wait to get your hands on one, head to Quirky and help develop the product and its pricing.

...Your Refrigerator
Everyone knows that people in a home always gravitate toward the kitchen, and people in the kitchen always gravitate towards the fridge. Why not move your morning routine—check emails, check Facebook, check news, check Twitter—to the same spot where you make your coffee and prep breakfast? The FridgePad mounts your iPad to your fridge with super secure magnets so you can multi-task in the mornings (or anytime!).

The FridgePad fits all iPad or iPad 2 models and is Apple Smart Cover compatible. You can mount it to any fridge door that is made of steel and has a flat section at least 21cm x 16cm in size. Get it from ThinkGeek for $49.99.
