If a ninja turtle was dipped in black shiny armor gloss and given the sole purpose of protecting your prized electronic possession, the result would be something very much like Cara iPad case by SwitchEasy. The Cara case protects the iPad all the way around, with a sleek and glossy polycarbonate screen protector as well as a durable but soft mixed-material outer shell. It’s all packed into a slim folio form factor that doesn’t ruin the iPad’s diminutive size. The Cara case also can prop up the iPad in both vertical and horizontal ways. In a bind, you can also remove the “shockproof elastomer” screen protector and use it as a small shield, like a targe or a buckler. Sorry, we just watched Braveheart on blu-ray.
