Indy Driver Uses iPad for Real-Time Race Stats

Indy driver Tony Kanaan is among the first professional athletes to integrate an iPad into his workflow. blogger Daniel Incandela noticed Mr. Kanaan holding an iPad during a pitstop, posted an image on Flickr, and then followed it up with a video interview posted to YouTube (see below).

In the video, Mr. Kanaan explains that his engineering team developed a custom app that displays real-time race information and stats so that he can quickly get updated during his pitstops. As he was speaking, he decided that what he really needed was a pocket in his car so that he can pull the iPad out himself, rather than his team having to take the split second to hand it to him.
