From iPod shells styled to look like raw meat to protective covers modeled after plastic cats, cases for Apple devices never cease to amaze with their sheer inventiveness and variety. Now, for roughly $68 US, you can kit out your iPad in stylish recycled cork, courtesy of A Produkt’s Kork cover, which gives the tablet PC an eco-friendly touch.

Slip it on, and you’ll presumably enjoy a less slippery grip on the device, useful when typing on the go or trying to play games while noshing on pizza and chips. Extras also include options to prop the slate upright without a separate stand and an angled design that reflects sound from the iPad’s speaker, better projecting it toward front-facing listeners. While creature comforts such as these, easy button access and added hardware protection may amuse, it’s environmentally aware users who’ll likely appreciate the accessory most. Credit a lightweight, green-conscious design -- that unfortunately results in a look that crosses wall-mounted bulletin board and champagne stopper.
