iPad snowboards. The next big thing?
Maybe. Maybe not. But the folks at "Every Third Thursday," who pride themselves on turning ordinary snowboards into fun pieces of art (in the past, they've made a Fender snowboard, a paintball gun snowboard, etc.), came up with the concept of embedding an iPad in a custom-built snowboard. The process is pretty cool. The end result is even cooler.
Never say never. Twenty years from now, these could be the norm. Oh, think of the videoconferencing possibilities.
