Just wanted to share my latest project: When I learned that the iPad 2 utilized embedded magnets for the “magical” smart covers I knew that I wanted to re-engineer the original Duct Tape Folio into a more elegant and refined design. Although the original iPad Duct Tape Folio worked well it did have a few negatives: • I based the core out of posterboard (mostly because that’s what I had lying around the house) which worked okay but it was a little too flexible and the duct tape showed off every little dent or crease. • I never really liked the elastic corners for securing the iPad, they worked well but looked kind of cheesy. • It lacked a built in stand or prop for easier typing, watching, etc. Keeping all of the above in mind, here’s the list of features for the new Duct Tape Folio for iPad 2: • Integrated sleep/wake function • Easy magnetic insert and removal • Built in prop/stand • Durable plywood core • Stylish magnetic clasp A short video and more images can be found here.
