Looking for a simpler, ‘greener’ case for your iPad? If so, you might want to take a look at The Kork. It’s made from 100% ‘natural leftover cork’ and seems well designed. Here are some of its specs and features:
- Recycled and Recyclable Natural Cork
- Easy access to all Buttons and Inputs
- Ergonomic Natural Shape and Feel
- Angled Audio Output for Front Projected Sound
- Larger Dock Connection Extra Space for Connectors
- Extra Space for Bigger Jack Input
- Angled Mic. Wall for User Directed Sound Caption
- Very Light Weight
I think the larger cutout for the dock connection port, to accommodate the Camera Connction Kit or other similar adapters, is a nice little touch.
The manufacturers reckon that The Kork doesn’t need a stand as it’s grippy enough to improvise with:
"With the kork slipped on your iPad, there is really no need for kickstands or other attach-ments. This is because cork has the great natural ability to no-slip grip onto almost any surface you put it on. Stands are also limited position-wise, with the Kork, you have the freedom to prop it up just right, no stands attached."
If you like simple shell cases, this may be an interesting option – though I think its price of around $67 (€49.95) seems a little steep.
