This is a pretty cool way to bring the iPad into public spaces and add tremendous functionality to it. The iRoom iDock is the world’s first powered, motorized in-wall iPad mounting solution. Intended for commercial and residential use, the $1499 accessory (yes, the accessory is more than the device it accessorizes) looks to offer a great deal. A 2012 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award winner, this in-wall iPad solution is ideal for docking and control in private homes, hotels, yachts, restaurants, hospitals, boardrooms, retailers and more. As Christian Johnson, Vice President of Marketing at Bracketron observed,

We have developed the latest model of the iRoom iDock to offer a wider variety of options for mounting and securing the iPad in luxury homes, office buildings, hotels, hospitals and more,We are bringing a level of customization to iPad integration that hasn’t been seen before, and are excited to unveil the new Keycard model at the largest professional audiovisual communications show in the world.


As the Press Release notes:

The iRoom iDock Keycard is ideal for commercial environments, where additional security is required when docking the iPad. This model can only be opened by triggering a programmed transponder chip. The iDock comes with a master keycard transponder and four additional transponders or keycards, and can save up to 50 transponder numbers. To open the dock and allow for removal of the iPad, the user simply places a programmed keycard near the bottom right corner of the dock.
