This cool new Kickstarter project may be one to keep your eye on – The LilyPad 2 is an Apple-certified iPad 2 case that can charge your iPad, includes a battery backup, adds HDMI-out, and includes a stylus, whistle locator, and keyboard stand!
While this device does look cool, it is a bit large and bulky, but if you aren’t worried about the aesthetics of it, this looks like a really cool idea! Not only does it charge your iPad (and iPhone) using environmentally friendly solar power, but it also helps prevent you from losing the iPad itself, as well as providing HDMI out, a built-in stylus, and a keyboard stand.
While the LilyPad 2 has more features than a Swiss Army Knife, it’s $165 pre-order price tag may be hefty enough to keep you from pressing the button. Still, if this is exactly the type of iPad case you’ve been looking for all your life, go ahead and visit the project’s Kickstarter page to reserve one of your own!
