Miniot iPad 2 Real Wood Cover

Miniot iPad 2 Cover

I’ve always been a fan of Apple’s own cases, as they’re usually designed with the minimalism that Apple is famous for, and work as they’re intended to, but the new iPad 2 cover from Miniot is making me reconsider my devotion.

Made from a single piece of real wood, it fits snugly to the edges of the iPad 2, and uses magnets to attach itself, just like Apple’s cover, allowing the Miniot cover to wake and sleep the device as intended. It can also be rolled into a stand, or folded out of the way when it’s time to read, so its good looks don’t get in the way of functionality.

…Tim Knol is king?

The music video for Tim Knol’s When I Am King uses a combination of stop motion and pyrography, or the soldering of images onto wood, to create a very new and unique look that works quite well for the desired effect:

…It’s Things Thursday: corbusBOARDS?

corbusBOARDS

Those looking for a custom way to ride down the street should definitely check out corbusBOARDS.

Handcrafted and one-of-a-kind, the corbusBOARDS are made of aluminum, and are designed to be “fully functional, impressive to ride art objects”.

From the maker:

    Knowing that the classic wood structure was limited I turned to aluminum streamlining the design until I came up with sleek silhouettes at around the same weight of traditional long-boards — and just as ride-able. These custom boards are a completely original cross between a long-board and a short-board for a smooth cruising ride that is also focused on independent vision and comfort. These are not trick boards, but they are tricked.
