Most protective cases serve only to encase and shield your favorite tech-gadgets from accidental bumps and drops. However, the 2-skinny from Hatch & CO. is unique in the fact that not only does it fully protect the exterior of your expensive iPad 2 and 3, but that it also expands the functionality of your favorite tablet with the addition of a Bluetooth touch sensitive keyboard. Featuring LED backlit-textured keys (perfect for enjoying your iPad in the dark) and a sound feedback option, at only 7mm at the thickest point, the 2-Skinny keyboard attachment is the slimmest and lightest in the world. The keyboard has no physical spaces so crumbs and dust won’t find their way between the keys and the protective case safeguards both the keyboard and iPad by closing like a clam shell. From the back of the case extends a stand which keeps your iPad upright during landscape viewing and the built-in magnet puts your iPad to sleep when fully closed, saving battery life. The 2-Skinny keyboard provides a maximum standby time of 45 days, 68 hours with the LED backlight off, and 12 hours with the LED backlight on. A keyboard attachment with a protective case makes for an excellent combination and is ideal for students, the office, and overall general use.
I don’t know about you, but I for one am glad the future is finally here (
minus the flying cars: Nevermind) and thus, behold the Magic Cube, from Celluon. This sleek little device can be used wirelessly or wired via USB and features two modes: Keyboard mode or Mouse mode. Wait, it gets better. This little device projects a layout for all your typing and mouse (mousing?) needs. Perfect for travel, typing, and well…showing off, it also works quite well if you’re keen on pretending you’re typing aboard a spaceship somewhere deep within the galaxy. I won’t judge you space cadet.
Here’s the essential information:
The Celluon Magic Cube is a compact, portable device that allows you to add a virtual keyboard and mouse to almost any Bluetooth-enabled device. It is compatible with the latest devices, including Windows XP/Vista/7, Windows Phone 7, iOS4 (iPhone3GS/4, iPad, iPad 2), and Android 2.2 or higher. While the real intent of this device is to be used wirelessly via Bluetooth, it can also connect via USB. There’s even a switch which allows you to easily switch from wireless connection to USB connection (USB cable included). The Magic Cube can be charged via the USB cable, and on a full charge you can enjoy over two hours of usage.
In Typing Mode the Magic Cube projects a full-sized perfectly operating laser keyboard that will work on any flat surface in front of it. An optical recognition mechanism enables you to type on the projected key images while real tapping sounds are generated, making typing texts or e-mails as easy as with an ordinary keyboard. In Mouse Mode you can use your finger as a mouse rather than typing when using with a laptop. Read More
