MobileMount - Mount Your iPad Anywhere, To Pretty Much Any Thing

Here's an interesting Kickstarter project for mounting your iPad or other iDevice. Using twist-lock suction cups which seem very secure, plus a ball joint for ultimate manoeuvrability, the MobileMount looks like a great solution for those of us who use our iPads everywhere and anywhere.

We're thinking of attaching it to a wall whilst we watch Video Podcasts when in the kitchen, but you could also use it for plein air painting, sticking to a surface as a monitor on a photo shoot or anything else a bit more creative than our washing-up idea.

A $30 pledge gets you a MobileMount if the project is funded, which isn't too bad in our opinion.

What do you think?

Finally a mount that doesn't require its own case in order to be used. One thing I don't like with most mount systems is that they force you to use their particular case in order to mount to them. While this is fine for dedicated devices where people won't be using the iPad outside the singular purpose they got the mount for, it doesn't work so great for those of us that take their iPad everywhere and do just about everything with it.

I'll be keeping an eye on this project, it looks very promising.

Matt - that's a good point, thanks for your comment.

I like this. Totally with you on the iPad in the kitchen idea. I have a few recipe apps and being able to stick the iPad to the wall would be much better than having it sat on the surface.

I'm sorry to be a little off, but how does the battery perform when using sketch apps? Can we expect 5, 6 hours?
I'm asking because you guys seem to have taken a creative path with the iPad 2, and it's what I feel most appealing right now, as opposed to Android counterparts or a laptop (sucky battery life).

Newbie - battery life is always a bit hit and miss depending on everything else that is happening (WiFi, Bluetooth, other apps, screen brightness, location services, etc.) but around 5 hours is to be expected depending on the app's use of the CPU.

Looks very cool and sleek, but like most people i have a case which is not smooth, and a suction cup would not adhere to it. In fact, not that I think about it, I don't know anyone who uses an iphone without a case.
