My iPad mockup

I’m really excited about this thing. But I couldn’t quite get a sense of how it might feel. What’s 1.5lbs like in the hands? So I made a mockup:

Obviously it’s not metal and glass, and therefore not as rigid, but I love how this thing feels. Ingredients:

iPad mockup

  • 1 copy of Ellen Lupton’s Thinking with Type, which has about the right dimensions
  • 2 thin pieces of packing cardboard, cut to specs
  • 30 quarters for ballast
  • tape

Mine came out to 680 grams, right on par with the wifi-only model. Your results may vary, but that’s what the quarters are for.
