The iPad spinning Sleeve360 is Imminent

Sleeve360 iPad™ Case | November 2010 Update from Sleeve360 on Vimeo.

There has been a patient expectation around the Sleeve360 (touted as 'the wearable iPad case') amongst those who have been looking for a different approach to holding and protecting their iPad. The final production versions have now been received by the company and the case will be out very soon.

What's the USP?

The Sleeve360 offers, amongst other things, a detachable handgrip that, when attached to the case, allows your iPad to swivel through 360 degrees. As you will see from the video, it gives your iPad that ZZ Top style spinning feature which may or may not be something you can make use of.

We think that iPad artists especially may benefit from the hand grip functionality but also anyone who wants to use the iPad on the move such as Medical staff, stock control, presenters, musicians in live performances, etc.

Other features

But the case has a few other tricks up its sleeve. In addition to offering a good deal of protection for your iPad the case can be propped up in portrait or horizontal positions again using the hand grip and, in the case of portrait format, an extendable piece that supports your iPad at the right angle.

Perhaps more interesting is the inclusion of two little flip out stands that allow the iPad to sit at a very comfortable angle for typing, as demonstrated in the video.

Coming soon

The Sleeve360 is not out yet, so we haven't got our hands on one yet, but it looks like an interesting approach to cosseting your iPad and simultaneously enabling practical use of the device and we are very curious to see how well it works.

Pre-sales start in the next week or two if you are keen to pick one of these up.

We are curious to hear what you think. Is this something you would be interested in? Does the 360 degree handgrip feature interest you? Let us know in the comments below.
