Our serial-inventing friend Dotan Saguy is back, this time with yet another super-smart iAccessory. It’s a little carrying case for your everyday iPad essentials, and it is designed to integrate with your iPd Smart Cover. It’s called the Smart Cargo, and it’s as ingenious as Dotan’s other Kickstarter projects like the Smarter Stand.
The Smart Cargo is a tiny aluminum closet which sticks to the Smart Cover with magnets. It has a door through which you can load it with styluses, cables, your camera connection kit, earbuds and anything else you might need.
The Cargo then sticks to the non-hinge end of the iPad cover, and it shaped to fit inside the cover when you roll it up into its triangular stand format. Thus you never need to remove it.
Th Kickstarter video shows it in action, and demonstrated how well it works as a grip when you’re carrying the iPad in your hand, fitting into your fingers and actually appearing to make it easier to carry.
I’m tempted to use it as a place to store spare SD cards and batteries for my camera, as well as the camera connection kit and a little microfiber cloth. I also like the fact that you can just toss it into your bag should you decide you want to use your iPad unencumbered.
As ever, Dotan is making this very affordable. Early birds will be able to pitch just $15 to secure an order, and the regular Kickstarter price will be $20. When it ships the RRP will be $30.
It’s a very clever idea. I just wish i took my iPad to of the house these days – I usually pick up the mini instead.
