Swivelling Keyboard Case Turns iPad Into PC-Like Tablet Computer



Remember those swivel-screen ultrabooks? The MacBook Air knockoffs with a screen and keyboard that could be twisted and refolded to make the device into either a slimline notebook or a really fat iPad copy? Well, now you can do the same thing to your actual iPad with the iHome Type Pro Bluetooth Keyboard Case.

The case comes in two parts, joined with a swivelling hinge. The top part is a shell case for your iPad, the bottom part a Bluetooth keyboard. You can open it up like a laptop computer, close it like a clamshell case, or flip the keyboard around back to hold the whole thing like a fat iPad.

It’s pretty ingenious as these things go, and easily solves the problem of what to do with the keyboard when you;re not using it. The photos on Amazon’s product page show it being used by doctors and folks in suits on constructions sites (architects?), which seems to be about right. In fact, this is the perfect companion for the iPad if you want to replace the bulky Windows tablet PCs that only ever seemed to be used by doctors and nurses anyway.

The Swivel case, as it is not called but totally should be, is $99, and can be had right now.
