When you get tired of playing with LEGO apps on your iPad mini, you can play with LEGO building blocks on your iPad mini. This BrickCase for iPad mini is a full-coverage case that fits the original iPad mini. (A case for the mini with Retina display is coming soon.) SmallWorks says the case is the world’s first LEGO brick-compatible case for the iPad mini; it’s color-matched to the actual LEGO blue base plate. (There are also covers in red and and in a green that’s color-matched to the green baseplate.) It has an “edge-to-edge studded baseplate building surface, compatible with LEGO, Kre-O®, and MegaBloks® bricks and elements.” The BrickCase is constructed of polycarbonate and polyurethane and is lined with microfiber material. The front has magnets to operate the mini’s sleep/wake functions, and it will fold completely flat to the back of the case for one-handed use of the mini. It’s $39.99 at SmallWorks.
