Chinese tinkerer tries to build his own iPad | Crave - CNET

Hats off to the guy in the 20-minute video below, then, for trying to make himself an iPad without having to buy it or barter for it. Even if the thing does run on Windows XP.

Over the course of two weeks, the man seems to have patched together some old parts with a touch screen, which he painstakingly brands with the Apple logo. He even creates a nifty case for it, complete with a keyboard.

He demonstrates how his "homemade iPad 3" works in the video, rotating the tablet and using Google Earth, reading an e-book, and browsing other sites.
