Ever since Apple released the iPad, it was pretty much common knowledge that it would only be a matter of time before some genius car tuner would begin installing the iPad on some pimped-out ride. That car tuner, it turns out, is Scosche, which recently released something they’re calling, the "iKit", which, of course, is nothing more than an iPad installed on a car.
In this video, Scosche shows us exactly how they were able to install an iPad into the dash of a Subaru Impreza WRX STI. We’re not quite certain how smart it is to be using an iPad when you’re behind the wheel of a 305-horsepower sports car, but that’s not really the foremost concern of the boys from Scosche, whose only objective, we believe, is to get people so interested in having an iPad installed in their cars that they’re going to call these guys to do it for them.
Either way, the whole idea of having an iPad inside a car bothers us for the same safety reasons concerning Oprah and her "No Phone Zone" campaign. Now that America is trying its hardest to send the message regarding the dangers of texting while driving, here comes the genius idea of installing an iPad inside a car, which if you ask us, could poise a bigger problem for inattentive drivers out there on the road. Putting the safety issue aside, temporarily, Scosche does provide a clean install for the iPad with an attractive car mount eliminating the need for the driver’s radio. If only drivers would be concerned enough for their safety as well as the safety of others to only use this contraption while the vehicle is not in motion. Something tells us that is not going to happen so we will have to stick to our guns in saying that installing an iPad in a car is just plain dumb.
