Smart Cargo gives your iPad a nifty storage compartment

Fully funded via KickStarter just a day after launching, Smart Cargo gives you a place to store your keys, stylus, sync cable, earbuds, and all the other iPad -related doodads that typically fill up your pocket, purse, or carry-on.

Smarter Stand for iPad blitzes through Kickstarter funding goal

The idea behind the Smarter Stand is to offer more flexibility than the two viewing angles Apple’s Smart Cover offers for propping up the iPad. 

A Los Angeles entrepreneur and app developer launched the Smarter Stand on the community fundraising site Kickstarter hoping to raise $10,000 by August 13. But within 24 hours he’d already raised $10,000 and funding by individual contributors stands at $78,952 as of today.

In a promotional video Smarter Stand inventor Dotan Saguy said the idea came to him when he was trying to use his iPad in the kitchen propped up against a jar of jam. “I thought if I could just isolate some of the folds in the cover, [...]
