If you spend a lot of time in the backseat of a car for any reason or if you have kids that ride in the backseat and like to use your iPad, you may be like me and worry they’ll drop it if you have to stop suddenly. Scosche showed off an interesting iPad 2 mount that during CES that was specifically designed to hold your iPad 2 safely and securely in the car. The holder is called the backStage pro II.
The case is designed to hold the iPad securely and it fastens to the little bars underneath the headrests on the front seats. If your car doesn’t have the type of headrests with a button that allows you to adjust their height, this device won’t work for you. Scosche claims that the holder will stay attached your car in the event of an accident.
It is made from rugged aluminum and keeps the iPad within reach, assuming your backseats aren’t really far from the front seats, the holder can be used safely and securely while driving. This would be an awesome holder for road trips with kids if you have the 3G version of the iPad 2 since you could let them watch streaming Netflix or other content while you drive. The holder is available right now for $149.99 and there is a version for the original iPad as well.
