Turns out this one already exists! WiFi food prep stations are going to be big with IoT in a few years. Just ask Ikea. It looks like you won't have to make knife marks in your existing tablet after all.

Re: Alternative use #11 @Kruz: I was referring to the Tablet Project.  Sorry to hear that the project did not fly.   I will keen, still, to see if there were any "case studies" on lessons to be learnt.

Re: Alternative use #11 @Mike: Are you referring to the tablet project or the event location? The tablet project was in Lebanon(middle east) but unfortunately didnt fly.

Re: Alternative use #11 @Kruz/@Susan:  I just realized that the County is Spain as you guys are planning on hooking up.    Never a dull moment especially as LR indeed is at the forefront of the deliberations.

Re: Tablets @Kruz: It is getting there for sure--and I have been quite impressed with how I've been able to be productive on my LG Android Tablet.   The price-point is also in the right direction--although I am with you in that it is yet to evolve.   I also am curious to see what is actually the Country--if you can share some resources because I'd be keen to see the successes and see how--if the iPad Academy succeeds at my son's school--take lessons learnt and see what can be done further.

Re: Tablets Singapore defiantly has some thugs going for it, but I wouldn't say the U.S. Is behind them, just on a different trajectory.
