Three new iPad accessories now available thanks to Kickstarter

Sketchbook for iPad Pro

The fun of Kickstarter is funding a new product you think you will enjoy, but just for kicks let's look at a few successful Kickstarter campaigns that brought us three interesting new iPad products.

Transform your iPad Pro into a spiral bound notebook

Sketchbook raised over $6,000 on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo back in March. The iPad Pro case gives your tablet a sketchbook-like look with its wire binding and Leather surface. It also includes a hard plastic middle and microfibre lining to protect your iPad from drops and scratches. The creators of Sketchbook goal was to retain the special bond artists and designers have with a sketchbook without making the iPad look fragile or inexpensive. To do this they used a customized wire spine made from 1.35mm reinforced formed steel. The result is a retro looking iPad case that does not sacrifice protection for fashion. The Sketchbook case for the iPad Pro is available in 3 colors for $25 through indiegogo.com.
