just hours after the unveiling of the new iPads, Grove is already offering the Wood Smart Case for both the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display. as with Grove’s tradition, the Wood Smart Case for iPad Air and iPad mini is handcrafted from lightweight (and sustainable) bamboo and sturdy Eastern Hardrock Maple and is designed to work as a smart cover for automatically waking or putting the device to sleep when the cover is opened and closed, and the flexible design of the cover also allows it to double as a stand offering three standing (propping?) positions for your Apple tablets. the frame itself is of maple, while the rad ‘smart cover’ is a product of bamboo with integrated strong rare-earth magnets.
like any good case, the maple case allows for access to all ports, speakers, camera, and flash. other highlights include actuated wooden power and volume buttons, an innovative slide in design ensures the device will not fall out even when holding it upside down, and an soft ultrasuede interior that keeps your screen scratch- and dust free. the Wood Smart Case for iPad Air and iPad mini by Grove is available now for $79 and up. steal a few more look in the gallery below.
