Economy-Class Innovation: iPad brackets.

The Pinnacle seat by B/E Aerospace is an industry-wide, economy standard—more than 200 million have been produced. But the Aussie budget carrier Jetstar has snapped up a new version with an ingenious tweak: an integrated bracket so that an iPad can be snapped onto the back of the seat in front, creating a TV-like screen. Passengers who don’t have their own iPads needn’t miss out: Jetstar will soon offer an in-flight rental service for $8.40.
