Wednesday marked the release of DODOcase's iPad mini Folio, the latest in its line of part-case, part-notepad tablet covers. Described as an "all-in-one solution for digital and analog needs," the case features traditional craft techniques in its production, including bookbinding practices. The interior of the iPad mini Folio includes DODOcase's signature bamboo precision-carved tray on the left side, with its right side occupied by a reporter-style twenty-four page refillable notebook.
DODOcase for Kindle Fire made available
DODOcase turned its high-end case-making to Amazon's Android tablet with the DODOcase for Kindle Fire. Like the iPad and BlackBerry PlayBook cases, the handmade case replicates the feel of a traditionally bound book and can be used both as a luxury case but also as a stealth case for those worried about conspicuous technology. The Kindle Fire itself sits in a bamboo tray that holds the slate while minimizing the ecological impact versus tree wood.
