Nibiqü Brings Microsoft’s Type Cover To The iPad

If you want the convenience of Microsoft’s Touch Cover for Microsoft Surface without having to deal with Windows RT, the folks behind Nibiqü have you covered. Nibiqü is a new Kickstarter project that aims to bring a Type Cover like experience to the iPad. Like the Type Cover, the Nibiqü adds a physical keyboard to your tablet that also doubles as a case. However, unlike the Type Cover, the Nibiqü works with the iPad and protects the back of it as well. You can prop your iPad up into a comfortable viewing angle using the case as well, which is helpful when typing and viewing movies.

Where can you get a Nibiqü cover for your iPad, anyway? Currently, the Nibiqü is a Kickstarter project seeking $100,000 worth of funding. As of the time of publishing this article, the Nibiqü has received roughly $9,800 from backers with 41 days left. If you’re looking to preorder a case for yourself, expect to drop a pretty $89 if you’re one of the first 100 to preorder or $109 if you get in late on the deal. The Nibiqü is available in six different colors — blue, green, pink, white and gray — and it’s available in English and Spanish variants.
