Apple introduced the smart cover for the iPad in early 2010. It was a simple but innovative invention by Apple. The smart cover can be used in a multiple ways; as the perfect movie watching, game playing, web surfing, do it all companion. It folds in all the right places so you can quickly create a stand that holds iPad upright.
The first iPhone was released in 2007 and up till now it has earned the company billions of dollars yet they never thought of making a smart cover for iPhone. Well the good news is that Zahra Tashakorinia & Derek Tarnow, 2 students at the IIT Institute of Design in Chicago plan on introducing a smart cover for the iPhone which is known as TidyTilt which seems to be even more innovative and smarter than the Smart Cover introduced by Apple.
This clever two piece iPhone accessory serves as an earbud holder, a kick stand and a mount for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. A thin magnetic strip is attached to the back side of the phone which allows the flexible plastic cover to hold together. With this accessory you don’t need to worry about tangling your headphone cable and frustrating yourself while untangling it.
Like the smart cover it can be used as a stand for your iPhone in both portrait and landscape mode so that you can watch movies and videos without cramping up your hand as you hold the iPhone. Not only does it give the back of your phone a completely new colorful feel but it also protects it from scratches. The thin magnetic strip attached on the back will allow you to mount your phone to other surfaces like your fridge which comes very handy if you’re cooking.
The TidyTilt is available in four colors i.e. green, black, pink and blue. You can get this innovative and smart must have accessory for a reasonable amount of only 19$.
