GRID-IT! Wrap

I’ve posted the GRID-IT before, but this is the GRID-IT! Wrap, which has an additional neoprene sleeve on the back that holds your Nook, Kindle, iPad, or laptop, depending on the size you choose. The wonderful elastic system of the GRID-IT! keeps all your cords and accessories organized as usual. Nice.

The Oona–multi use iphone tool

Kickstarter has a pretty cool project up for a for a multi-use smartphone tool which allows for mounting your phone on any number of surfaces which will accept a suction cup, such as your windshield, in the kitchen, on a bedside table or desktop. Even more interesting is that it can mount on a camera stand for using any number of time lapse apps for the iPhone on the market.

For a limited time (until June 3rd) you can fund the project for $25 and they will send you an Oona once production has begun. After the fund date an Oona can be purchased for $30.

You can get more information here.

iPhone Horn Stand

I’m seeing more and more of these passive-amplified (no power source needed) iPhone speakers lately. Check out our previously posted Koostik, a modest stereo speaker done in wood, and the Phonofone 3, an extravagant porcelain version that is just as much a sculpture piece as a useful amplifier. The Horn Stand takes the economical route and is made of molded silicone.While it’s the least expensive of the bunch, I personally feel it’s the most well designed, for it can be used in both landscape and portrait mode, and you can still charge / dock your phone while using it. Gotta love it’s portability too. Available in black, green, white, and light brown from a various retailers via Amazon.

HandStand iPad Holder

This ‘handy’ stand does more than just protect your iPad; it features a strap for ergonomic comfort and it rotates so you can easily change views. I’m tempted to put an exclamation point after that last sentence, because it does look incredibly effortless and functional. Your hand remains in a comfortable position while switching the iPad between portrait or landscape, and you can show the screen to others around you with just one hand. See the video below for an example.

TravelTeq iPad Case

Update: 20% discount on TravelTeq’s iPad Case (for the first iPad, not the new one). € 180 instead of € 225, which is a tad more affordable.

Is this the mother of all iPad cases, or what? Luxury doesn’t come cheap, but it sure looks nice. The TravelTeq case is handmade from Florentine Vacchetta leather and is adjustable to 3 different positions. If you’ve ever had a favorite leather bag, you know that this case is going to wear well and develop that nice patina… and if it lasts longer and looks better than other cases, maybe it’s worth every penny. Maybe.

Photojojo Classic Leather Camera Satchel

Photojojo offers relief to the world of drab black plastic camera bags with their Classic Leather Camera Satchel. An all leather exterior houses a padded interior fitted for a camera and lenses, as well as a laptop sleeve for 13” laptops. Two front pockets as well as a zippered rear pocket keep the small things organized while you snap away. I don’t even have a nice enough camera that would warrant owning such a handsome bag but it looks suitable for doing double duty for carrying about town as well.

NoteSlate

No, it’s not an iPad wannabe, nor is it a new eReader. It’s got no apps or games or books stored on its memory card. This simple tablet device takes the place of pen and paper, that’s all. It has a simple real-paper-look interface that allows you to make notes or sketches for future reference, then save or delete them. With a long life battery (180h) and a $99 price point, it’s awfully tempting to see how well it would work. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait until June of this year to actually put your hands on one, but it could just be worth it.

See NoteSlate’s website for specifications and details.

Brenthaven Enclave 5-in-1 iPad Case

The Enclave iPad case from Brenthaven won’t turn too many heads on looks alone, (plasticky brown and black shouldn’t be the first thing you want to wrap your sleek iPad in), luckily it makes up for it in function. Besides the basic duties of protecting your iPad, the Enclave functions as a viewing and typing stand, and features a secure grip for to protect against a accidental drop. An included strap allows you to hang it from the back of a car seat, or perhaps on the bus too if the person in front of you doesn’t mind. If you’ve got a minute to spare, check out this video which best explains the features of the case.
