Wudskins Ipad Case

What is it?

It’s a case for you Ipad. It’s made from bamboo plywood with an aluminum hinge. The case can be folded behind for a more comfortable handheld position, it can also be supported in an upright position so you can read more comfortably. The friction of aluminum hinge is for a good view from different angles.

Why it’s cool?

It’s nice that they used bamboo for this because it’s sustanable plus it feels good.
Perhaps your Ipad doesn’t fit in your house because of a different style of interior. This case disguises you entire Ipad and makes it look like a wooden box. Maybe that fits better?
another plus is that you can decide for yourself if you want one with or without the friction of hinge.

You can pre-order you case right now!
It’s a project of Kickstarter. They help people with the start of your project, by making a pre-order you help them to start it and start to produce it! They need $10.000

What is it?

With Valentine coming up the best thing you can surprise your sweetheart with is booking an igloo in the heart of the Swiss Alps. These High-tech ecological tents are at 1700 metres high and can only be reached on skies or by foot.
In these domed tents is no electricity, so light has to come from an oil-lamp and heath from a fire.
That means of course that these igloos are not made from snow!

Why it’s cool?

This is a new experience to be, one with nature but still have a lot of luxury around you, like a bar, high tea’s, juices and so on. Because there are not many igloos, there is not much traffic and will there be traffic it’s a skier or a snowboarder, because cars and buses can’t come there. And on top of the iceberg this is all eco-friendly!I mean would it not be totally different of any other night in any other hotel? It’s different than what where used to and that makes it special.

Watch the trailer from White Pod an book here!

What is it?

This is a product which is made from recycled polypropylene (aka old yogurt cups).

Why it’s cool?

All over the world people use toothbrushes. Let’s say that everyone switches their toothbrush twice or three times a year. That’s a lot of toothbrushes. Recyline’s Preserve thinks that toothbrushes can be much more sustainebler. There for they make brushes out of old yoghurt cups and when you need to replace it you can send the old one back to the company and a partner company will turn it into plastic lumber for use in picnic tables, park benches and board walks.
By the way, you can customize your order. Just let the company know who many times you want to replace your toothbrush in a year. They will send it to you automatically and all you have to do is send the old one back.
So give plastic a third life and join Recyclines Preserve!
