tangram: smart mount iPad speaker series

  ‘the smart mount’ by tangram design

korean design studio tangram has conceived ‘the smart mount’, an iPad speaker stand that aims to transform the home setting into a fine art gallery through fine music playback. by connecting the iPad into the system, a free downloadable application is launched, where the ‘smart mount’ creates a high-quality gallery ambiance for personal playlists. the device also integrates a wireless bluetooth speaker to eliminate wires for a clutter-free listening experience.

    dbkii says:
  • Why use Bluetooth if the device is plugged in? And what use will this mount have when Apple announces the new dock connector in a couple of weeks!

    dao says:
  • understated but stylish!

    SH says:
  • looks great.. but isn’t it tippy??

    rnrjc says:
  • dao ; By using the Bluetooth, the Smart Mount can be also connected with other devices, regardless iPad is plugged in the mount. For example, you can play music on your iPhone through the Smart Mount, while you play on last summer vacation photos on your iPad on the wall.
    And when Apple launches different shape dock connector, we are going to apply it accordingly. The one of the purposes of the Smart Mount project is to make the Smart Mount to be compatible with any generation of iPad. Now Smart Mount is compatible with iPad, iPad2 or the new iPad.

    Firt of all, it doesn’t look like just stand alone type at all.

    SH says:
