If you think the iPad is just another e-reader, lots of smart people have been making fun things to change your mind. The folks at Breakfast New York used the iPad as a controller and front-camera for a helium blimp.

The party turned into a hit.

If you want your own iPad (blimp not included) be sure to check out Gawker.TV's scavenger hunt!
