The beautiful new iPad cases by Grove

In the jungle of iPad cases, Grove ups the game with their 3rd generation case featuring a CNC machined bamboo back and either a leather or grey wool felt front flap. All of Grove’s cases are hand crafted in Portland and come with the option of engraving a custom piece of art on the case, or picking one of the images in their Artist Series.

The case features some really elegant details, the bamboo power button cover & cross stitching on the felt. The flap is held in place with strong hidden magnets, allowing the cover to come off easily. You can get your own at Grove for $99 to $179.

Smart Phone Notebook Version 2 by Nothing Design Group

Smart Phone Notebook Version 2 by Jin-Woog Koo, director of the Korean studio Nothing Design Group, is a brilliant mash-up of the two things designer carry around the most. Their phone and a sketch book.

The note book allows you to interact with the digital universe in relation to the physicality of pen and paper. As someone who always has his phone on next to him while he’s sketching, looking up things or using the calculator, this product would change my world.

The note book is 8.5″ x 11″ and has 176 pages and is note currently on sale yet in the US, but hopefully will be soon.

MacHook by Workerman

This is a really brilliant & simple solution to an annoying problem, how to store your headphones neatly at your computer. If you have an iMac, and a spare $15 ($20 for the decoupaged version), the MacHook by Adam Brackney of Workerman is just what you need.

Sure, you could make one yourself, but you haven’t and I’m pretty sure your wouldn’t have the “nano-suction technology” that the MacHook uses to adhere, and cleanly remove, to your Mac.

RGB Wallpaper by Carnovsky

This RGB wallpaper by the Milan based studio Carnovsky is really blowing my mind today. The wallpaper, which has been designed in many different motifs, features three color layers, one each in pure Red, Green, and Blue. The resulting patterns and complex shapes mask the real images within the wallpaper until the wallpaper is washed in corresponding colored light. When this happens, each layer is revealed in vibrant monotone color.

MegaPhone by en&is

I love the really fun MegaPhone iPhone amplifier by Enrico Bosa and Isabella Lovero of en&is. The ceramic cone sits on a simple wooden base that allows you to direct the amplifier. The simple design uses the age-old method of amplifying sound and brings it into the digital era!

LetterMpress iPad app on Kickstarter

This has to be one of the coolest and most original iPad apps I’ve seen to date! The LetterMpress app, being developed by John Bonadies, puts the entire letterpress process onto the iPad, allowing you to create “lock-ups” and print your files on a virtual Vandercook press. You can then export these files for use in your designs. This is a really cool project that I hope gets more people interested in this amazing printing technology.

Be sure to support the project on Kickstarter!

Karvt wooden iPhone covers

These Karvt wooden iPhone covers look really amazing. I’m totally going to get the bamboo one, or should I get the pine. Now I’m not sure. They come in a ton of different woods all for only $25.00. You can also opt for just the front, or just the back for only $15.

P.S. They’ve got some awesome Macbook & iPad covers too.

Apple Docking Station by Bostjan Majcen

I really wish someone would build this and make it somewhat affordable. Following the minimalist style we all expect from Apple, designer Bostjan Majcen has designed a docking solution that repeats the MacBook Pro’s ports and provides a quick and easy way to engage and release them. There are a few options out there for Mac docking stations but all of them are either ugly, to expensive, or limited in functionality. Seems to me like this would be the best option if only it went into production.
