Thanks To UNF Students, iPad Rock Show May Be Coming Soon

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Casey Ayers and Patrick Duffy clearly have the entrepreneurial spirit. The two buddies have collaborated on an invention they hope will catch on with musicians of all skill levels.

"Well we heard musicians playing the instrument apps on the iPad, and these would work great in a live environment," Ayers said, "But if you're going to be moving around on stage you need something to hold it for you."

Ayers graduated from the University of North Florida in 2008 and met up with Duffy while working on a similar project.

They put their heads together again and created an invention that's getting some attention.

"The device itself is an iPad case that not only has straps so you can use both hands, but it also supports itself at an angle so you can operate and use your iPad at the same time," said Duffy, who is in the class of 2013 at UNF.
