With an iHangr, the iPad can reach its full potential in the kitchen
Scarsdale, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2011
The iHangr integrates the iPad or iPad 2 into the kitchen safely and easily. Using no tools or adapter, the iHangr quickly hooks onto a cabinet door, placing the iPad at eye level and away from cooking perils. When not hanging, it is a full featured iPad stand, a protective case, and a convenient hand grip for holding and carrying. With the iHangr, Apple's tablet computer can be part of an active kitchen environment. The Online Think Tank recognized the iHangr as winner of its 2Q2011 Best Consumer Innovation Contest.
The iHangr's inventor, Doug Shepord, is an amateur chef who wanted a better way to use the iPad for recipes. The kitchen counter was too crowded and dangerous; the table was too far away. “Shuttling between iPad and stove, I’d forget things,” he explained. When a suitable holder could not be found, he began tinkering with a wire hanger, eventually developing the iHangr.
With its patent-pending hook, the iHangr adjusts to fit cabinets up to 42” tall and mounts on furniture, mirrors, car seats, and many other surfaces. To make the iPad comfortable in the kitchen, the iHangr stores on a shelf or counter like a cookbook. The stand works like a picture frame and the hand grips are based on coffee mug handles. “Ergonomically, the iHangr feels very familiar,” says Shepord.
The iHangr is launching on Kickstarter.com, the community-funding website for creative projects. Pre-orders will be accepted through October 1. Since it began in April 2009, Kickstarter has funded 10,000 projects and raised over $40 million, according to Wikipedia.
