Turn your iPad into a stylish laptop with the CruxSKUNK keyboard case

Turn your iPad into a stylish laptop with the CruxSKUNK keyboard case
Kickstarter is a place where lots of interesting, unusual, and plain ingenious product concepts can be found. We've told you about more than a few of them, such as the Android-based gaming console Ouya, the Vers 1Q Bluetooth wireless speakers, or the Pebble smartwatch, all of which are soon coming to a shelf near you.

Just as fortunate is the fate of the CruxSKUNK – an iPad accessory that turns the tablet into a laptop with its full-sized hardware QWERTY keyobard. It is compatible with both the new iPad and the iPad 2, connects to the device via Bluetooth, and sports a hinge that can rotate around 360 degrees. Made out of a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum, CruxSKUNK is only 6 millimeters thin, and when the iPad is in place, their combined thickness is of about 19 millimeters.

In case you want one for your iPad, you can visit the project's Kickstarter page and pledge $155 or more to it. Early buyers will be given a leather carrying sleeve for their CruxSKUNK and a USB cable for battery charging. Production should begin in mid-October, and the first units are estimated to start shiping in December.

So once I use the case, iPad will be converted to laptop? So I can finally use flash and run windows software? That's wicked. Where can I get one?
