RibCage-for-iPad

Smart folks over at SwitchEasy. They took a page from the human body–specifically the ribs protecting the vitals–and applied it to protect your electronics. Keep that slick little iPad safe and sound with this slightly phantasmagorical RibCage case, which uses a molded rib-form to protect the screen. Wrapped in faux leather, it’s handsome too… in a sort of Army of Darkness way. On top of that it comes with two slim fold-out stands for when you want to give your hands a rest from holding the damn thing in a heated game of Scrabble. In short, this case is all function without losing the form, allowing you to use use your iPad as a hot plate, a cutting board, or maybe as a doorstop. Or not. But it IS damn tough.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
