Hey fellow Notion Ink fans, I, like you have noticed a lack of cases for our awesome product and decided, hey I know how to make cool stuff why not give it a crack! (plus I work for a product design company with manufacturing connections in China). The case I envision would be focused on impact resistance for outdoor use. I'm a survivalist/outdoor enthusiast at heart and will be keeping my survival books/ reference material on my PixelQi Adam. This great outdoor tablet is gonna need a hell of a shock proof case though and a thin one at that. I'm calling it Goliath Protection keeping with the biblical nomenclature of Adam and got renders up this weekend. I've tried to keep with biomemetic approaches to mimic animals abilities to have ultralight strong structures (i.e. Toucan Beak). The design is basically a silicone skin which allows full access to everything while adding thicker bumpers on the corners. The skin can be standalone or combined with the hardshell which has a flush integrated stand built in for multiple viewing angles, including but not limited to portrait and landscape mode. The hardshell also has doors that cover the ports when not in use. No pics of the stand part yet as this needs to be patented first (expect patents filed in a week or two).
I put all my ideas into this but now I've run out, I'd love the support of the community and dont want to start any case wars with anyone (NIH) I'm all about collaboration and not about competition. *edit, NIH has informed me that they are also doing silicone inner with hardshell outer. I still feel there is no real issue as we were definitely not the first to come up with this concept . I wish them the best of luck with their development and hope to see them come to market soon. Variety and choice is necessary for the consumer and I will continue developing my design which is unique and different to their approach.
Once again all input is appreciated!
