The Slate by iSketchnote Digitizes Your Pen and Paper Drawings Instantly

So far it has been kind of a disappointing CES 2015 for iPhone and iPad accessories. Most of the announced third party iOS cases and chargers have just been upgrades of already existing products. There have also been a few five-slot power docks, speaker cases and Bluetooth keyboards showcased, but we have seen all that before. Luckily there was one interesting product for the iPad spotted earlier this week.

The Slate

The Slate by iSketchnote allows you to transfer your pen and paper drawings to your iPad using a Bluetooth connection. Users can place a notebook or a piece of paper on top of the writing platform and the Slate will digitize their sketches or writing in real-time. The platform features a scratch-resistant coating that holds the paper in place, and it is built for mobility only weighing in at 14.1 ounces (400 grams). The Slate is also equipped with a micro SD card and micro USB ports and offers up to 10 hours of battery life.

Speck Launches New iPad mini CandyShell Cases

Speck unveiled its new lineup of iPad mini CandyShell cases at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday. The popular and colorful CandyShell and CandyShell Grip covers both feature Speck's dual-layer design and rubbery interior to protect your iPad from scratches and accidental drops.

The CandyShell Grip offers the extra protection of rubber handholds to make your iPad easier to hold, especially when playing games.

“The CandyShell design offers both style and protection, which make sense for the smaller, more portable iPad mini,” said Bryan Hynecek, Vice President of Design at Speck. “We’ve also seen a lot of people on the go with the iPad mini, so we felt an easy-to-hold case like CandyShell Grip was a good fit for the way the device is being used.”

The SCD technology adjusts the flow for each device to avoid harmful overcharging, and the Bluetooth keyboard allows you to type on your tablet while you use the docking station. The CR19 also ships with a “Tidy-Cable” organizer to keep your multiple cables tangle free.
