The iBook iPad Stand [Spoiler: It’s Awesome]

So, a Japanese Apple fan gets tired of waiting for the perfect iPad stand to arrive and decides to build his own. Pretty usual story. But this one is different. A Japanese Apple fan gets tired of waiting for the perfect iPad stands, takes an old iBook case and builds an iPad stand out of it.

Now that is awesome.

This is the original blog post, but you can find a translation here. The mod is called "iPad in iBook", and as you can see from the photos below it's pretty damn good looking, geeky and useful. The keyboard works, the stand works, it's an iBook.

What could you possibly want more?
