Updated: Introducing The Smart Cargo, A Magnetic On Board Storage Accessory For iPad
See update below. A new Kickstarter project will soon become the world’s first magnetic on-board storage accessory for iPad. The Smart Cargo, which only launched on Kickstarter this week, is already funded. However, you still have plenty of time to back the project. Created by Dotan Saguy, the Smart Cargo attaches to your iPad’s Smart Cover and provides storage for small accessories such as Lightning cables, a stylus, and much more. Take a look: Speaking to AppAdvice exclusively, Saguy said that the Smart Cargo is designed to keep “iPad sleek and minimalist, yet provide some room on board for accessory storage.” As an added bonus, the accessory also doubles as a great ergonomic grip too. He calls this “just a lucky break.” Although early bird specials have been exhausted, you can still get a Smart Cargo for a pledge of $20 or more. Any pledge of $34 or higher also includes the previously released Smarter Stand for iPad. Pledges are being accepted through August 9. Kickstarters will receive their pledge gifts in October. At launch, the Smart Cargo will retail for $30.

Update: Since first publishing our report, Saguy has added another early bird promotion. The next 600 people that pledge $15 or more will receive a Smart Cargo. But, hurry! These are already being snapped up. [gallery]
