The Bowden and Sheffield Minimalist iPad Cases are another Kickstarter project. These cases are made from natural materials, and they are designed to be “sturdy enough to take a beating, but sleek enough for any setting.” They’ll fit the iPad 2 or new iPad. The Bowden is made of bead-blasted, aircraft-grade aluminum, walnut or cherry wood, and black or brown leather. The Sheffield is made of polycarbonate, walnut or cherry wood, and 100% natural wool felt. The felt panel on the Sheffield can even be used as a typing stand. Pledge $100 for a Sheffield or $120 for a Bowden case. Funding is at almost 50% with only 9 days left.
