Miniot Cover for iPad 2 Gives Your Tablet Wood
March 25th, 2011
One of the coolest accessories I have seen for the iPad is the Smart Cover. You have probably seen this cover with its magnets that keep the iPad 2 propped up in several modes for more comfortable use. The magnets inside the case will turn the screen on and off and they can even stick the iPad 2 to your fridge if you are brave. If you like how Apple’s Smart Cover works, but you really want something with more style Miniot has it’s own version of the design.
The Miniot Cover for iPad 2 has magnets inside just like the real thing and but is made out of little sections of real wood. The maker says that all the edges are smooth and flush with the iPad. When you open or close the lid the screen will turn on and off.
The wood doesn’t flex in large segments like the official Smart Cover so you end up with more of a roll to prop your iPad 2 with than a triangle. You can see what I mean in the video demo:
The case will start shipping today at 50 euro (appx. $70 USD), and it looks damn good.
