Travel Tech: Hard Candy's iPad Street Skin
So, you and your iPad are set to be one of those pretty cool travelling pairs, hopping from flight to train to beach. But you're afraid to just shove it in your carry-on, because let's face it, it cost a pretty penny and your mom taught you to look after your belongings, right?
So, consider a tough case that doesn't make you look like you took a leather-bound journal with you. Hard Candy's Street Skin gives the iPad a 3mm rubber coating with an easy optional screen covering of the same material. All ports and controls are accessible: this isn't going to let you drop it six feet onto rocks and then into the ocean, but it should give some peace of mind when you see someone cramming a sharp-edged case into the overhead locker you just stowed your bag in.
Price? $39.95. And they come in more sedate colors than the shocking pink one we like (just try and dash out of a hotel room without noticing you left this beauty behind...)
