There are already a ton of sleeves and covers for the iPad. There are also already ones that claim that they’re “smart,” since they can automatically wake your tablet up or make it go to sleep by just lifting or replacing the cover. But something that promises to push past just being a smart cover is Smarty.
Smarty trumps other stands in the sense that when it says it’s convertible, it really is, thanks to ingenious folding techniques and magnets embedded into it. With a few folds here and there, you can convert the soft, protective sleeve into an angled stand for reading e-Books or watching videos.
Smarty was designed by Kim Jung-Sik, Cho Jae-Hong, Lim Sung-Won, Koo Bon-Young, Lee Bum-Joon and Shin Jung-Won, and can be purchased from Connect design for $49 (USD).
