American iPad case designers CruxCase, have launched the CruxSKUNK, a rotating protective keyboard case that transforms the iPad 2 and the new iPad into a compact laptop.
The CruxSKUNK redefines the iPad with its exclusive hinge technology, allowing the keyboard to rotate 360 degrees for multiple positions: typing, movie watching and portability. At an ultra slim 6mm, it is the thinnest keyboard ever developed for the iPad. The case is made with aircraft- grade aluminum making it one of the lightest keyboard cases on the market for on-the-go use. In addition, added foam padding in the case allows the iPad to stay in place and prevents scratches. Built with the look of a Macbook Pro and the weight and feel of a Macbook Air, the CruxSKUNK also features Bluetooth connectivity as well as a raised, full-sized QWERTY keyboard. The case comes with a built-in 350 mAH battery to power Bluetooth connectivity and will only need to recharge once a month depending on usage.
