Twelve South's BookBook wallet case for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 looks, for all intents and purposes, like a gorgeous old leather-bound book. Like something out of a pulp-fiction library or fantasy role-playing game, magic bound within. And indeed there is! Open the BookBook up and your iPhone — and cards and cash — are safe and secure inside!
Peripheral maker Twelve South has differentiated itself from the competition with a laser-like focus on just making stuff that matters for Mac and iOS device users. Their products include the BookBook, a "travel journal" case that looks for all the world like an antique book, stands like the HiRise and BookArc, the PlugBug charger and more.
Twelve South has introduced a new travel case for the iPad the BookBook Travel Journal. An all-in-one leather travel case built for use with either the iPad, iPad Air or iPad mini, the BookBook also carries essential accessories like headphones, chargers, and cables. The BookBook can be used to replace larger laptop cases, messenger bags, and briefcases for those who only travel with their iPads now, instead of a laptop.
Twelve South, creators of accessories such as the HoverBar and PlugBug, have released a new product, the HiRise for iPhone 5 and iPad mini. A charging station, you install your own Lightning connector inside of the HiRise, letting you adjust how your device sits on it.
The HoverBar is made by Twelve South, who've created a lot of interesting Apple accessories over the years. It's billed as your ultimate iPad wingman, and Twelve South claim it was inspired by the Iron Man himself, Tony Stark. Really, however, the HoverBar is a clever way to flexibly mount your iPad 2 or new iPad to an iMac or Apple Cinema Display, a kitchen counter, or any tabletop that conveniently happens to be close by.
HoverBar is a new mount from Twelve South that turn iMac or Apple Cinema Display into a futuristic iPad 2-powered workstation. If you're less into Iron Man-style productivity, and more into simple utility, you can also mount HoverBar in the kitchen to help with cooking, in the bedroom for reading or video watching, or in the living room for couch-side information surfing.
Twelve South has unveiled the PlugBug which is its latest addition to an ever expanding Mac and iOS accessory range. The PlugBug is an accessory that piggy backs onto your existing Mac power supply and turns it into a dual charger. It will now charge your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as the same time as charging your Mac.
