Turn your iPad into a Document Camera for Under $10





The iPad is becoming a more powerful tool everyday.  Recently, I found a YouTube video talking about how to build your own PVC iPad holder essentially turning your iPad into a document camera.


I sent these directions to our awesome industrial tech teacher and a mere $7.00 and 15 minutes later we had our very own stand.  I found however that I wasn't a big fan of having to take the iPad out of the case and sliding it into the pvc pipe.  So we created the model below.  In our version the iPad just sits on the pipe, it might not be quite as secure but it is much easier.


To get the full document camera experience, you will need to have the Apple 30-pin to VGA Adaptor and a projector.  Epson now offers several projectors that connect to your iPad through bluetooth that may be worth looking into if you are purchasing a new projector.


I use this with the app Stage, which is free on iTunes.  This app allows you to write and label your image much as a SMART board would do.  It is a very basic app but very powerful!

I hope you find this helpful!  Do you have any other innovative iPad solutions that you would like to share?  I would LOVE to hear them!

  3. The appliance action is simple, no account as to why you charge the money, and the actuality that it is a business relationship, there is no embarrassment. abounding bodies are clandestine with their finances, and failures are the aftermost affair they demand others to know.

These kinds of secrets help in being a specialist on this topic. This post is very helpful to my family because people like you devoted time to learning. Regularity is the key. But it is not that easy, as has been made out to be. I am not an expert like you and lots of times I feel like giving it up. Looking at a person like me, your posting is of good assistance and booster. Thank you for sharing. website design san francisco
