With the iPad constantly increasing in functionality, the demand for cases and stands that fit versatile needs is also increasing. The iPad as a navigational tool for instance, has reached a new level in airplane usage, and is no stranger to other vessels like boats either.
Everyone knows that electronics don’t mix well with water, and the folks at DNDistribution are no strangers to that fact, having created an elegant solution to a simple problem. Their two new cases allow those who love the water to enjoy their iPads without worry.
I admit, when I brought my new iPhone to the beach I had to bring it in a plastic bag for fear of the elements. Using an iPad around water is much harder to protect against given its size and touchscreen function.
These two iPad cases however, will not only protect your iPad in up to a meter of water, but will allow owners to play music through the built in speaker from within the cases. One of the cases (pictured above) also features a shock absorbing shell for those prone to dropping their tablet.
Both cases feature ports providing access to the headphone jack and the dock connector.
An optional stand accessory allows boaters everywhere to rejoice in using their iPad as their primary navigation tool or entertainment machine. “Quick Snapping” allows for simple mounting keeping one hand free to enjoy the water.
Probably one of the most attractive features of both cases is that neither require tools to open or close, allowing users to take them anywhere. Also, the film covering the screen is both flexible and durable.
These cases are only for those serious about protecting their iPads, as this kind of quality costs a pretty penny. The standard waterproof case runs $79.99, while the military standard impact and waterproof case costs a staggering $399.99. Herein lies a perfect example of the old addage: “You get what you pay for.”
