About this project

The iPadded Cell will provide a surreal experience. Which way is up, which way is down? Where is left, and where is right? The 6 sides of the iPadded Cell will be covered with iPads, Facetiming to the iPads directly across from them. This will provide an unprecedented experience for those inside. It'll be like mirrors facing each other, except the opposite.

I will use Velcro to stick the iPads to a wooden backing. There will be a door for entry. The entire structure will be made out of wood. There will be high quality speakers directed towards the inside, with the input device immediately outside. There will also be ambient light with controls. A wifi router must also travel along with it. This router will have to be very good.

Most of the cost will go to buying iPads. Some of the cost for the fabrication of the wooden structure with a Plexiglass floor. Some more will go to buying a speaker system.

Cost breakdown:

Wall x4: 8 iPads tall, 10 iPads wide each. 80*4=320. One wall will have a door.

Floor and Ceiling: 10 iPads long, 10 iPads wide. 100*2=200.

Total iPads=520. Cost of iPad+tax=525. 525*520=273,000.

Total for room, Velcro, plexiglass, speakers, lights, electricity, and wifi router=20,000.

Project total=293,000.

293,000/.9=325,000 (kickstarter+amazon get a 10% cut)

I intend to tour the iPadded Cell around.

Thank you for reading, and please fund this project.

Risks and challenges

It will be challenging building the entire apparatus and making sure that the iPads coordinate through wifi. Due to the experimental nature of this project, I do not know what hurdles, exactly, I will encounter.
