I must admit that I am a huge iPad fan. I use my iPad at least half of the time each day while I work on my main computer to stream video, music or just to search stuff I need to research. It’s a great little extra resource to have that makes all the other work on the computer a lot easier. When I have 15+ applications open on my computer, it’s not always in the best interest of the computer to open up another one. That’s exactly when the iPad is such a great tool to have. You just slide it open and do your search there instead. There’s no switching between applications or windows on the computer, and you have a direct resource in front of you, if that makes sense.
However, when it comes to the stand on the iPad, it is quite limited. The first generation iPad sleeve, from Apple, which incorporated a minor angling of the iPad, wasn’t too impressive. It sort of got a little better with the second generation for the iPad 2, but that is pretty much where it ends. That is, until today, when I found one of the coolest sleeves I have seen to date. And, that is saying a lot this time around. It will actually give you a proper stand that you can really use when you fold it the right way.
It’s designed by no less than 6 (!!) designers and they are Kim Jung-Sik, Cho Jae-Hong, Lim Sung-Won, Koo Bon-Young, Lee Bum-Joon and Shin Jung-Won. No wonder this thing is a a beauty. This great iPad sleeve, called the Smart Stand Sleeve, is actually available right now, and it’s really inexpensive too. For just $49, you can have this thing grace your office table or your night stand. I am predicting this sleeve to be a heck of a success since it is such a versatile and useful, not to mention badass, creation and invention. This is the kind of design that we love seeing here at Bit Rebels. Useful and straight forward design is always the best.
