There are loads of benefits to owning an iPad, some of which are not immediately obvious. Sure it’s great that we can work on the move and record HD videos but what we really want to do is keep our pets entertained.
Toys for Pets
The iPad 2 may cost somewhere in the region of $400 but this hasn’t stopped people buying them as unusual gifts for their pets. You might be wondering what an animal can use an iPad for but there are loads of things they can do with one, although you might have to help them switch it on!
In recent months hundreds of iPad owners have uploaded videos to YouTube of their pets playing with the devices. It seems that cats are particularly fond of virtual aquariums and if you want to see this for yourself MyReef 3D is probably the best app to download. Your cat might scratch your iPad to pieces but at least it will stop him from eating the goldfish!
A Video Face Mask
This is something Will.i.am did during a performance at the American Giving Awards in December last year. He and his backing dancers attached iPads to their heads which were playing videos of themselves. It seems a little pointless to use a video of yourself, but the rest of us could have a lot of fun impersonating our friends or even celebrities.
The trouble with normal face masks they don’t move so you’re never going to be able to convince someone that you’re the real deal. But using a moving video could work. Admittedly the tablet strapped to your face might be a bit of a give a way but I reckon you’ll get away with it if you put your hood up or wear a big hat.
A Chopping Board
Attacking an expensive glass faced gadget with a knife doesn’t sound all that sensible really does it? But the iCut Interactive Cutting Board is actually really useful, providing you go carefully of course.
Say you’ve got a loaf of bread or a cake that you want to cut into equal portions. All you have to do is place it on your iPad select the number of people and cutting lines will appear on the screen that you can follow. It might sound stupid but the glass is actually pretty tough so you should be ok.
There’s so much you can do with an iPad 2; the only real limit is your own imagination.
