Two of my favorite things about the iPad Air and iPad mini are their size and style. Even though I’m more drawn to Android devices these days, I still really prefer the way Apple products look and feel. No one does product design like Apple. That’s why I never can figure out why you would ever want to cover up such a great looking product with a bulky (ugly) case. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that protecting your premium device from everyday abuse is important to a most people because no one enjoys discovering that first scratch on their iPad or even worse, a shattered display due to a drop. But there has to be a better (looking) way to protect an iPad without making it three times as thick and heavy as it is without a case. Maybe there is… Introducing iCorners (yeah, I hate the name too), specially designed injection molded stick-on corner protectors for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display that will protect the tablet from drops and scratches. Made of Makrolon® polycarbonate, which is the same material used to make items such as safety goggles, helmets and riot shields, iCorners are virtually unbreakable, impact resistant, lightweight corner standoffs with glass-like transparency. They even enhance the use of Apple’s own Smart Cover.
iCorners are a new Kickstarter project that is currently seeking $10,000 of funding. Pledge levels start at $12 and go up to $19 for one set of iCorners for either the iPad Air or iPad mini with Retina display. The project ends on June 18th with product shipping expected for June and July.
