I have always wanted to have one of those fancy home automation systems that would control the lights in my home with the push of a button. I also want a touchscreen on the wall to control the system too. If you have the home automation system and want the touchscreen controller on the wall a new system to mount the iPad to the wall may be perfect for you, assuming you can control your system with the iPad.
The mount system is called PadTab. It is pictured with the iPad, but it would work with most tablets. The system is a couple plastic tabs with a square that goes on your iPad and is about as thick as a nickel. Another tab mounts to your wall or other vertical surface and is much smaller than the tablet side.
