There’s no denying the fact that I’m always looking for a really good iPad case. It looks like the Portuguese design studio pomm has created a pretty cool iPad case, made up entirely of cork. I wonder if it will float if dropped into water, or if you can stick pushpins into it.
The iPadCorkCase is designed to protect your iPad (which is good I guess, because it sort of defeats the purpose to have a case that doesn’t do this.) They chose to use cork because it’s durable, versatile, has a high resistance to daily wear and tear, as well as its shock absorption and water resistant properties.
The case isn’t slim, but I guess that it needed to be this thick to do its job. While I don’t think that this case revolutionize the case industry, it is a cool looking case. The first 500 preorders can get it for €55 (~$72 USD) at pomm. Prices go up to €60/$75 USD after that.
