As promised yesterday, the video on how to make your own very effective sunshade for your iPad, Samsung or other Android tablet. Enjoy.

Could you please post photos of materials. I can take them to supply source to show what I'm looking for. Thanks

I really like your design, Pete. I went to our local hardware and to Home Depot to try to find the plastic corner that you used to attach the foam board to the iPad mini and I did not find it. I asked the sales folks and they did not know of anything that they had that was anywhere close to what I described.

Sorry to be so ignorant but could you tell me more about how the corner plastic is used in a shower installation so that I could better describe this to the sales folks at Home Depot?

Ot has anyone else found these plastic corners in any of the Big Box stores that could point me in the right direction as to where to find it?

Hi Ian,

The extrusion I used is made to fit sheets of thin laminated wall board into a corner. It is used widely for lining the walls of bathrooms, showers or wet areas. I also purchased mine from Bunnings Warehouse in Christchurch, NZ. Bunnings is just a chain of home improvement stores in NZ & Australia but I'm absolutely positive that this same material will be available all around the world. It might be found in a more specialized store in your area, such as a plumbing supply store perhaps.

If you can't find it then let me know. I might be able to start exporting it to Inspire pilots all over the world and make MILLIONS!!! Mwahahaha (my Dr Evil laugh)

So I guess you all build bathrooms differently "down under". Nobody sells that in the states. Start cutting plastic you have a new career in hood exportation!

I might look into that. Small problem will be that you already know how much they cost to make!!
So you charge a little more for making the kits;). I gotta have one for the iPad Air 2. Have tried two different ones and not satisfied.:( Can't get the corner pieces in Canada. :mad:

I have a great rubber bumper case over my NVIDIA Shield which I really like. I just know I'll drop it outside someday (though I do have the Square Trade warranty--protects against user error drops and spills). BUT--the case I love so much prevents me from making something like this because it makes it so much fatter. I'm still looking..or..I can get over my cool rubber case. Oh....first world problems...what will I ever do?!?!:confused:
