There is little question that the Apple iPad has taken over the galaxy, the ultimate in mobile computing. The experts – PC World – say that there are a heap of reasons to rely soley on the iPad as your primary mobile computing device. Apple’s iPad has a more functional interface than a netbook, it’s lighter and has a longer battery life.
Technology is only any good if it fulfils a human need, the iPad seems to cope rather well with fulfilment. Surfing, communicating, imagery, sound and motion, the iPad was designed as an interface to all the human bits that make us smile day to day.
A bunch of clever boffins at Woodford Design have now replaced the humble, often tacky fridge magnet with what they bill as the Ultimate Fridge Magnet, meet FridgePad ::::
In almost every home in the universe, the kitchen is the one place where the inhabitants find themselves each and everyday, the hub. It therefore follows that the refrigerator is abused as a message centre, an art gallery, as well as a library.
Almost every refrigerator has at least one magnet holding up a note, a calendar, photograph or some other piece of paper for ease of reference.
As any good architect will tell you Less is More . So how do you create minimalism on a refrigerator? Turf the tack and embrace the tech of iPad!
FridgePad isn’t an original, the behemoth of add on bits Belkin has a similar product, the difference? FridgePad is sleek, swish even, it looks like it was made to live on a fridge.
What does FridgePad – equipped with iPad – have that sticky-notes or magnets don’t? EMAIL!
Email is arguably the single most important communication mode, almost every human with a fridge has an email account, which goes to say, that every human with a FridgePad on a fridge has access to the most important form of communication available to mankind….
The other common task a kitchen puts up with is cooking, iPad allows the culinary genius in your home to not only use it as a library of cookbooks, that wouldn’t be very Apple, no no, FridgePad allows your budding Escoffier to take part in the now abaundant art of Live Google+ cooking hangouts, schools and live video chat.
Don’t even get me started on putting photographs on the fridge, the FridgePad equipped iPad is the penultimate picture frame/gallery…
Of course FridgePad equipped iPads are capable of the mundane as well, simple forms of communication are unlikely to go away anytime soon, noted!
