iSking at Macworld
iSkin's presence at Macworld is being used to demonstrate four new pieces of protective gear. The first of these is the ProTouch, a skin for Apple's thin aluminum keyboard. The ProTouch is primarily made out of silicone, but uses Microban antimicrobial material to prevent the spread of disease. When the skin does need to be cleaned, it can be quickly removed and manually washed and dried. The skin is already available for $25, in blue, black, pink and frosted colors.
Currently without a price or release date are iSkin's Redline notebook bags, each made of a single piece of cow leather with a minimal number of seams. Handles and straps are stitched into the base of the bags, and the findings are built of solid metal alloys. Microfiber used as liner is said to prevent any scratching.
For iPods the company has released the eVo3 classic, an iPod classic version of its long-standing case series. The new case comes in black and translucent frost colors, and in each instance features anti-dust protection, a textured grip, and an extra resin shield to guard the screen and front panel. A rotating belt clip allows vertical and horizontal orientations. Pricing is $35.
The company's next iPhone case will be the Fuze, a model with a polycarbonate exterior and a softer shock-absorbing interior. All ports and antennas are by default exposed, but for extra protection, the docking connector can be sealed with a flexible cover. The case can additionally be used with the revoClip, although this is a separate purchase. The Fuze should ship in the second quarter of the year.
