This would work by using the orientation sensor to adjust signals to speakers when turning your iPad sideways, to continue optimum left/right stereo sound. The design is titled "Audio Channel Assignment for Audio Output in a Movable Device" and would make it possible to hold the iPad in any direction and hear proper stereo sound.
