Wooden iPad Station Makes an Apple 1Pad
November 6th, 2012
Most of you are probably too young to remember what the original Apple computer looked like. The few of us who do, recall it looking like a wooden box with a keyboard built into the top. In fact, the first Apple didn’t even come with a case – that’s just the case design that homebrewers built for the system. Now you can make your shiny new iPad look a bit like that wooden Apple 1.
The Wooden iPad Station from Hekseskudd is carved from black walnut wood, and holds both the iPad and Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard, turning your tablet into a retro-modern workstation. The slot holds the iPad in either landscape or portrait modes, and the Apple keyboard fits neatly into the cutout on top. There’s actually a little extra storage space under the keyboard as well.
While it’s definitely reminiscent of the Apple 1, this looks a whole lot nicer, and the iPad is about a million times (and that’s my exact mathematical calculation) more powerful than the old 8-bit system of yore. You can grab the Wooden iPad Station over at Ahalife for $139(USD).
