Touchtype Kickstarter project looks to integrate Apple's wireless keyboard into an iPad case


Touchtype is a new Kickstarter project that looks to integrate Apple's wireless keyboard into a slim fitting case for the iPad.  Inspired by the plethora of sub standard and under sized keyboard cases, the designer set out to integrate a full sized Apple wireless keyboard into the smallest and neatest case he could design.

The Touchtype case stores the Apple Wireless Keyboard underneath the iPad — not on top (like most other keyboard cases). This means you have direct access to your iPad as soon as you open the cover. To use the keyboard, just move aside the elastic restraining loops and slide it out from the pocket. There when you need it, gone when you don't.

The Touchtype can also be used as a more traditional iPad stand and works in a similar way to the original Apple iPad case. You can use the iPad securely in portrait or landscape mode and it is compatible with any current model of iPad. The Touchtype, if funded will be available in  in either a smooth gray polyurethane, a "wild espresso" leather or a luxurious black leather.

If you want to get in early and secure one of these innovative cases, you have various options starting from just $49.
