A New Use for the iPad

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

One of the Abt brothers went to Bonnaroo music festival in Manchester, TN over the weekend. Not only is he a fan of music, but cool technology too. One of the bands playing this year was Nortec Collective. They play a fusion of Norteño (from the north) and Techno.

Nortec Collective is not just a fusion of Norteño and Techno; they also bring together music and technology. They actually use Apple’s latest iPad technology to make their music using an app called Electribe.

Korg, a manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, makes the Electribe app. The app is specifically made for the iPad and utilizes the 9.7” multi-touch display.

Abt's Mobile Electronics Installers Do It All

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Abt’s mobile audio department can turn your car into your own personal playground. John S., mobile electronics department manager called me today and said, “Do you want to come down and see an iPad that I just put in the dash of a car?”

I grabbed my camera and headed down to mobile electronics. I had an image in my head of what I thought it would look like, and admittedly, I wasn’t sure what the iPad would do, but I knew it would look cool.

When I got to the installation bay, I looked in the passenger door as John finished putting on the final touches and tested everything to make sure that the stereo and iPad worked correctly. I told him how cool it looked and then I stopped and said, but what does it do?

John explained that the iPad could control everything from the ignition, to the locks, to the security system on the Tahoe. He went on to show me it worked in conjunction with the Viper Smart Start App on his Blackberry.

In addition to controlling major systems in the car, it also performs all the functions of an iPad, like accessing iTunes and iPad Apps.

The iPad works off the wireless or 3G network, so if you want to use it as a GPS, radio, or streaming video player, go for it. You can do virtually anything with it.

For more information or cool ideas for your car, contact Abt’s mobile electronics department today!
