Cork iPad Case Offers Grip, Aesthetics

You love your iPad, and you paid good money for it. Now you can protect your investment with a case made of 100% recycled and recyclable natural cork with the Kork iPad Case.

This unique accessory (which comes to us from PadGadget) promises to help you get a comfortable grip on your iPad with an ergonomic shape and feel. It features easy access to all buttons and inputs via a number of strategically-placed cut-outs, including a larger dock connection and extra space for connectors. Angled audio output will project sound out of the front of your iPad, so no need to worry about muffling.

The company behind this product says that slipping it on your iPad is “like putting on a pair of slippers,” making the intimacy of reading or watching movies on the iPad that much more relaxing. We’re not sure about all that, but we do like the claim that this product improves your grip on your iPad–and won´t slip when your hands are sweaty.

The Kork iPad Case will run you $68.00 from A-PRODUCT.

    I like how this case looks with the cork, I actually have the ZooGue iPad Case which is cool because it is adjustable to any angle, and have to say no other case even compares to the ZooGue.
