WATCH THIS! >> iPad Table
The “iPad Table” is comprised of 15 iPads that are wirelessly connected to one another. The thing that I love the most about them is that the iPads are completely configurable. someone could pick up one of the iPads and move it to the end and it would still react. Also, each iPad can operate on its own as well. Can you imagine sitting at a conference table that was configured in this way? How much better would work be?!
I ran into this when researching for my studio project this quarter and thought to myself ‘This would be so cool in a classroom!’. I could just imagine children collaborating around this table and sharing information through technology. Then they could take individual iPads and sit around the room and learn individually. The teacher could be part of the collaboration and ‘toss’ information straight to the students during lessons.
I think that the developers should create a table base with a grid that would hold the iPads in a better way. However, the technology is very interesting and could have so many uses in a range of fields. What do you think? Do you think that this will be the future of conference tables and classroom collaboration? Or is this something cool that you would have in your living room?
