Brydge

Everyone loves the iPad, but for work it’s not as good as a laptop. Just try tapping out a report for your boss using your touchscreen--you won’t do it for long. Sure there are plenty of keyboards on the market for Apple’s insanely popular tablet, but Brydge is different.

With an anodized aesthetic that matches the iPad, the two appear to be one device. Brydge’s hinge hangs on to the tablet tightly and offers close to 180 degrees of positioning, just like your laptop. When closed, the Brydge-iPad duo is about the same thickness as a Macbook Air.
