Ekocase's bamboo- and faux-leather iPad case does its best to look like an oversized hipster notebook.
Sustainably-harvested bamboo frame? Check. “Animal-friendly faux-leather cover?” Check. Moleskine-like styling? Triple check.
The Ekocase2 is an iPad and iPad 2 case that should appeal to all of you vegetarian, Earth-loving, iPad-using hipsters.
Like many clever gadget accessories these days, it doesn’t exist yet except in prototype form, but if the creator, Ryan Frazier, gets enough pledges of support on his Kickstarter page, it’ll go into production. It’s got an interesting locking system that uses two bamboo pegs to hold the iPad in place, and will come in a variety of colors, just like your favorite paper notebooks.
Apart from the styling and the materials, I like that the elastic strap can also be used to hang the iPad on the back of a car’s headrest, turning it into a video display screen for entertaining the tykes in the back seat. You can’t do that with a Moleskine.
