Can’t keep your hands off your iPad? Check out this unique backpack from Assero Industries. The Defender backpack has a specially designed sleeve for the iPad, so you can strap the bag on your chest and view the iPad hands-free. The Defender does have the unfortunate side effect of completely negating whatever style or status symbol the iPad has. Not even George Clooney can pull this off:
Dude, the slickest Ray-Bans can’t redeem you from this. You’re wearing a backpack on your chest so you can fiddle with your tablet. You sir, are a geek. Accept it. Embrace it.
The straps are adjustable, and the iPad is secured with velcro, while a brushed tricot fabric serves to protect the screen. The bag also has lots of pockets and slots, and has an “iPod pocket” with headphone cord access. Practical dorks can pre-order the Defender at Assero Industries’ website for $130 (USD). If all you’re after is the hands-free iPad set-up, you can pre-order the Protector instead. It doesn’t have the extra pockets that the Defender has, but it’s only $90, so it’s a fair trade.
