Apple’s Smart Cover protects the most important part of the iPad 2 – the touchscreen – but it does nothing for the tablet’s backside, which is the part that’s more prone to damage even in everyday use. But if you still prefer to use the Smart Cover instead of one of the many third-party iPad sleeves or protective cases, then you should get Kicks, a new product from design studio Bluelounge.
The Kicks are silicone-rubber rails that protect the iPad from slipping and scratching. Fans of Apple’s minimalistic designs will surely appreciate the fact that the Kicks are simple and unobtrusive.
The strips attach to the iPad via 3M’s Damage Free Adhesive, which holds them securely in place yet makes them easy to both apply and remove even multiple times.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XG-1X2pr5Oo
You can order the Kicks from Bluelounge’s online store; $12 (USD) gets you 2 pairs of Kicks rubber strips.
