10 funny iPad accessories that are real (almost)
Accessories! Some want them, some not, but when it’s about an Apple product you know they’d be there even before it arrives. We’ve seen some weird ones, then we’ve seen weirder, and then the decision came to put them all in one place for you to see.
And if you thought it was easy picking out - you’d better rethink. We had to narrow it down to iPad-only accessories, and even there we’ve left some out. Those included range from a bacon case to an arm stand for the iPad!
This is our selection of nutty ideas that somehow made it to retail shelves, but we’re not claiming they are the nuttiest. We’re pretty confident you’ve bumped into even crazier ones, so don’t hesitate to share them with us in the comments below.
Love your iPad? Wish you could carry it on your arm at all times? The iArm forearm mount would do exactly that if it was real. Luckily, it's not - it sells as three empty prank boxes for $20. And the joy of annoying your friends with this gift.
Bacon and iPad. Those go perfectly together. Well, not literally - you browse the web and eat bacon. But if you're an ambitious case designer wanting to merge them together, here's what you end up with.
Now, your iPad has wings. Wait what? Yes, those are for even better protection. This is wrong on so many levels, that we'll just let the picture speak for itself.
Now, if you don't think this is funny, you'd better try placing a nearly 10-inch tablet in your pocket and act like there's nothing there. Oh yes, the idea is not that bad, though.
While we're still on the dressing topic, here's another take. iTee and iDress come with an iPad pouch. So you're almost like a kangaroo, but your baby is an iPad. You guessed right - it comes from Australia! Oh, and the maker claims this would keep your iPad virtually undetectable.
$60 will hook you up with an even more absurd piece of clothing. The C-3P0 backpack is for hardcore, and we really mean hardcore, Star Wars fans. The world will never understand you, but you'd still be happy, right?
Not exactly an iPad accessory, but this dog toy would be the closest possible match to an iPad for you, if you were a dog. And if you're a dog reading this, you should bark with joy. Could it get more absurd?
Yeah, it's custom made and not for sale, but it's awesome if you're a geek. Otherwise, it's just weird.
Obsessing over your iPad? If the iArm wasn't real, this here bicycle mount is quite real, and can actually get you into bigger trouble. And that's possibly one of the few cases where distracted driving on a bike could be dangerous.
Hell yeah, it's real. The idea is that you could slip you iPad in this waterproof case, in case you need to use your iPad in say pouring rain. Sounds likely, doesn't it?
