The latest Aussie-made iPad accessory from StudioProper (makers of the Wallee and Pix and Stix accessories) takes the same mounting idea of the Wallee and applies it to car headrests.

Studio Proper’s latest accessory doesn’t quite have as catchy a name as the Wallee did, but it is nicely descriptive; the Headrest is a $39.95 car headrest mount to keep backseat passengers happy while you’re driving. StudioProper’s founder Alon Tamir claims that the Headrest is that it’s “made of extremely durable materials, to withstand any speed-bump or pot hole.”

There’s any number of in-car DVD players that use the same basic idea, and while I like the idea of the Headrest, I do wonder if it’s not opening up the same problem that GPS screen mounts create; once you’ve got it in place, it’s rather obvious to nefarious types that there’s likely to be something of value in the car. You’d probably take your iPad with you when you got out of the car, but who wants their car broken into on the off-chance? [StudioProper]
