Kami also addresses a 'leather fatigue' among some iPad users who are tired of leather cases. Microfiber is an attractive alternative, and the fact that the case doubles as a stand through its unique origami design adds practical utility, which is unusual.

IPEVO, Inc., a designer and maker of technology products for education and business, has announced the release of Kami Origami Folio Case. Designed for Apple's iPad 2, Kami is a slim case whose cover can be folded to convert the case into a stand. Kami is now available for purchase through IPEVO's online store (http://www.ipevo.com).

Taking inspiration from origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, Kami's cover features creases which can be pinched and folded inward by the user. The resultant triangular support can then be used to prop up the iPad 2 for either a 20° or a 70° viewing angle, depending on orientation. The folding action requires no fasteners, Velcro, or similar, and can be accomplished in a few seconds.

When unfolded, Kami's cover along with the case serve to protect iPad 2 from everyday wear and tear and superficial damage. The light gray case is made from microfiber, which is sturdy yet soft to the touch. This microfiber, an alternative to the leather common with many iPad cases, is moisture- and stain-resistant, including resistance to fingertip acid. The material may be spot-cleaned.

At 4 millimeters thick, Kami has been characterized as "ultra-slim" and is among the slimmest and lightest iPad 2 cases on the market. The iPad 2 fits snugly into Kami, and cutouts keep the controls, camera lens, charging port and speakers exposed, such that the user does not need to remove the iPad 2 from Kami.

Special magnets in the cover of Kami cause the iPad 2 to enter Sleep Mode when the case is closed, resulting in more efficient power management and a longer average per-charge device life.

"Kami is our answer to customer demand for a lighter, less bulky case," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design of IPEVO. "iPad underwent a slimming down from the first to second generation, and we approached Kami with the same mentality. Kami also addresses a 'leather fatigue' among some iPad users who are tired of leather cases. Microfiber is an attractive alternative, and the fact that the case doubles as a stand through its unique origami design adds practical utility, which is unusual for such a slim case."

Kami Origami Folio Stand is now available exclusively through IPEVO's online store at http://www.ipevo.com.
