iPad Sprocket Pocket

iPad Sprocket Pocket from MAYAnMAYA on Vimeo.

Pretty Sweet Idea for the casual rider, but kind of a gimmick... I wouldn't trust an Iron on.. Shit would Have to be sewed up..

TV's in the headrest is soooo last decade.. Ima play movies on my back while Im riding my bike.. Next level son.

Their Description:
A 5 minute film that shows how-to build your very own wearable iPad Sprocket Pocket.

This was a MAYAmake 24-hour project.

The Sprocket Pocket, and the MAYA Sprocket iPad application were designed, prototyped, tested, manufactured in limited quantity (9 in first 24 hours where built and 4 were given away at an Apple Store just for fun to random bike riding iPad owners), packaged, and deployed all within 24 hours before the launch of the iPad.

For more information, to download the patterns or just find out what the heck we're talking about, check out: maya.com/sprocket

I took the pic off Tracko, cause I liked it, and I couldn't find a good image of the flyer...

Super TED!!!

I have yet to have had the pleasure to meet Super Ted. I'm hoping that someday soon, he'll come to Socal and kick it with us.
Until then, I'll just have to rock his face on t-shirt. What I'm really thinking, is to put someone's face from around these parts on a shirt... Who? Guess correctly and you'll get one for free, when I get around to making them...

Seen on prolly,
