  • ipad as monitor and input device

    Just though I'd throw this out there. check out the "air display" it allows the ipad to act as a second monitor and input device. so if the ipad isn't powerful enough use a pc and use the ipad only as a display and input device.

    Good find! I was thinking it was just like VNC desktop but the fact that it actually appears as a secondary monitor on the Mac is pretty cool. Video is below.

      Cool! I like the idea, I wonder if there's something similar for the PC already.

          Hi RipplingHurst,

          Yes, there is some app called MaxiVista for PC, you can use your IPAD as a second monitor with this application, I'm using this application in my IPAD, in my car, connecting to my laptop by Ad Hoc wireless connection, Also using Airvideo for playing movies stored on laptop on IPAD.
