Among the most surprising features not to make it into the iPad was a camera – after all, even cheap cell phones come with some sort of built-in, point-and-click device.
Made of durable rubber and plastic, the Cam-Case surrounds the iPad much like a "bumper" or "skin" case does for the iPhone. The bottom of the Cam-Case slides apart to let owners secure their iPad in place.
In one version of the Cam-Case, the left side of the case flares out to create space to hold a camera in the top left corner, and in another mock-up the camera is found up top. This camera rotates so it can face forward or backward, allowing users to snap pictures and participate in video chats via the Skype App, for instance.
A docking port is also cut into the bottom of the Cam-Case for charging purposes.
The Cam-Case was designed by Chet Rosales, a freelance design professional and a graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design who posts ideas on his Laorosa blog.
