Now you can attach an iPad to MacBook

Tablets are becoming increasingly important in our day to day lives. A new product called SideCar is created with the goal of putting them front and center – or actually, just a little over to one side. This device lets the user attach their iPad directly to the edge of a MacBook, and gives the user a feel and look of dual monitor, but each has a different style of operation.

SideCar clips onto the display of MacBook, then the user slides iPad into it. SideCar is only a physical link, so applications are still required to use the iPad like an external secondary display. This setup is very helpful for people who want to watch a movie alongside working on their laptop. This device is made from hard plastic with a silicone skin. The hard plastic gives it the rigidity to support the weight of an iPad. This silicone allows the grip while protecting the device from scratches.

This handy device is available in two models, vintage and deluxe. Vintage works with MacBook Pro and third generation non retina MacBook Pro displays. While on the other hand Deluxe fits third generation retina displays of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. The Original iPad users will not be able to take advantage of this, but all other models, which include iPad Mini, will fit SideCar.

The company responsible for the SideCar is gathering funding for its Kickstart, it’s still a ways off from its US $21,000 goal. Backers interested in purchasing a SideCar are required to fund a minimum of $16.
