Smart Cargo adds storage space to your iPad
When you carry around a tablet, there are certain other accessories that you’d like to keep on-hand. A charging cable and wall adapter are great for when your battery is running low. A stylus can be nice, if you prefer not to smudge up your screen, or you need a little more precision. Finally, a set of earbuds will keep people from getting upset when you want to watch a movie. The big question is where you’re going to store these things. In a bag? Your pocket? Why not store them on your tablet?
The Smart Cargo is an interesting case for your iPad. That is to say, it’s a case that attaches to your Apple Smart Cover, not a case that protects the tablet itself. The small hard-shell case locks itself to the cover using a series of magnets, much the same way the cover is attached to your iPad. Once attached, you can flip open the little door and stash a number of things inside, and be confident that they won’t fall out. Check out the video below to see just how well it stays put.
What’s really interesting is that this add-on does more than simply stores accessories. It was designed to roll up in your Smart Cover, act as a hand grip, and be detached and used as a wrist rest when you’re typing. The accessory won’t break the bank, either. If you put down just $20, you’ll get one of your own when they start shipping this October.
