CES 2013: Toast Shows Off Form Fitting Wooden Cases For iDevices
There are a slew of iPhone and iPad cases made from natural wood, like those from the Grove. We’ve seen them time and time again, but most of those wooden cases are simple backplates, which is not the case with Toast’s products. Instead, Toast’s iPad and iPhone cases are designed to wrap securely around the devices. The iPad versions are even Smart Cover compatible, an impressive feat for a wooden case. As Toast creator Matias Brecher explains to AppAdvice’s Dom Esposito in the video below, the wooden cases are scored with a laser to allow them to fit around Apple’s devices. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4Ob6AKgWzo Toast was originally a Kickstarter project that met its funding goal in early 2012. Since then, Toast cases have evolved into the fine product that you see in the video. Toast’s wooden cases can be made from three different types of wood, including walnut, white-washed ash, and bamboo. Each one can be laser etched with a pre-determined design or customized with your own artwork. Cases start at $25 for the iPhone and $40 for the iPad.
