Windsor is the shining background of a new commercial filmed by Windsor-based LiquidWild Media for an iPad accessory invented in Ottawa.

The GoPad is a Kickstarter project created by Ottawa inventor Peter Kielland designed to give “tablet users a totally new level of mobility”. The product slings around a tablet user’s neck similar to a camera strap and sits properly to give users of iPads and other tablets handsfree operation of their favourite device.

While the product isn’t on the market yet, pledging your support to it on Kickstarter will get you a GoPad with a case for a certain level of support should the product meet its goal of raising $75,000 by November 15th.

Windsor creative media firm LiquidWild Media created a promotional commercial for the GoPad which features two actors starting their days, one, a student, heading to the University of Windsor, and the other, an engineer visiting a construction project near Tecumseh Mall. The GoPad users find unique uses across the city for the tablets, and at the end of the day, the engineer catches a Transit Windsor bus home.

The commercial was directed by LiquidWild’s Steve Nicodemo, with cinematography by Sean Davidson, post production by Paul Peladeau, with hair and makeup by Carly Nicodemo.
