Picture of iPad Chair
It's all about the chair.  I keep reading that in blogs all over the Internet.  If you want to enjoy your iPad you need a comfortable chair.  Even Steve Jobs sat in a chair while demonstrating the iPad at the press conference.  Well, I decided to take it a step further and make a chair for the iPad.

This flat-pack design was inspired by the SketchChair software I saw recently.

Step 1: Design

Picture of Design
I started out by downloading the SketchChair software. I was able to create a lot of cool chairs, but I could never get exactly what I wanted. The software is a great concept, but it was not quite ready for what I needed. I switched over to my 3D CAD package (Pro/E). I stole a lot of the construction techniques in SketchChair, but modeled it in exact scale in Pro/E. The design only uses four distinct pieces: 2 Sides, 2 Center Pieces, 6 Slats and 1 rear leg brace.

The DXF of the parts is located on my website.
