This Kickstarter project combines an iPad case with a speaker, hiding the speaker in the case’s front cover. Or rather, the speaker is the front cover. Using trick NXT speaker technology — which allows speakers to take the shape of flat panels — Petur Olaffson created the Sound Cover, a battery-powered cover-slash-speaker that he says will triple the iPad’s sound volume and add bass.
Right now it’s still a Kickstarter project, but pledging at least $110 will snag you a Sound Cover; $165 will get you the Bluetooth version. Check out more cool images below (all provided by Petur).
When he was eight, Eli Milchman came home from frolicking in the Veld one day and was given an Atari 400. Since then, his fascination with technology has made him an intrepid early adopter of whatever charming new contraption crosses his path — which explains why he's Cult of Mac's test editor-at-large. He calls San Francisco home, where he works as a journalist and photographer. Eli has contributed to the pages of Wired.com and BIKE Magazine, among others. Hang with him on Twitter.
