New design was generated on Kickstarter site
Tangilsing has launched a hand-grip case for the iPad, the Grabbit. Developed via the Kickstarter initiative, which finances new ideas in design, the case has a rotatable leather hand-strap secured to the back for carrying the iPad securely with one hand. The strap is adjustable and available in brown or black leather, while the thermoplastic hardcase protects the back and corners of the iPad. The case ships with a removable screen cover for protecting the iPad display while in transit. The iPad's docking port is still accessible when in use, but the rest of its surfaces are fully protected.
The rotating strap allows users to quickly change perspective between landscape, portrait or off-axis views. The Grabbit is designed with reading, presentations and extended viewing in mind.
Grabbit pre-orders are available for a $50 pledge currently at the Kickstarter website, and the retail price is projected at $70. It should be noted that the project is not fully funded yet, as Kickstarter sets a fund goal that must be met before the funds are released. The Grabbit is over $3000 towards a goal of $10000 with 13 days to go to reach the mark.
