Your 3rd Gen iPad may be the newest tablet on the block, but you can instantly make it look a few centuries old by stuffing it inside the iCog Hades.
Handcrafted with care by John William Dunn of Victorian Steam Austin, the iCog Hades is basically a wooden iPad stand with a matching keyboard. Use the two together, and you can transform your close-to-brand-new device into a vintage, steampunk laptop. You can also detach the top lid from the keyboard to use it as a standalone bumper case for your iPad, if you prefer. The keyboard has custom brass covers and hooks up to your device via Bluetooth.
Of course, you don’t expect something this spectacular-looking to come cheap. The iCog Hades is priced at $424(USD) and is available from Victorian Steam’s Etsy shop.
