Luxo iMac makes killer iPad stand

Among the iPad’s superpowers is inspiring its owners to new heights of creativity. So far it has delighted a 100-year-old user, been wrapped in chocolate and spawned all sorts of DIY cases and stands. The latest effort we’ve seen is this G4 iMac-mounted beauty.

Flickr user Rusty saw his busted G4 iMac, his iPad and had a chocolate-and-peanut butter moment. He removed the iMac’s innards and display. Next he cut and molded some acrylic to accommodate the iPad and attached it to the arm. Finally, a speaker pair was placed inside the iMac case with a cable running to the iPad’s headphone jack. From there, all that was left was to pair a Bluetooth keyboard and plug the iPad into a wall!

Now he’s got a retro-cool, swivel-arm iPad stand that’s perfectly at eye level. Actually, the iMac looks a lot like it did with the original 15″ display. We love it.

Thanks to Rusty for the tip.
