ORA Is an Eight Speaker Sound System Case for Your IPad

If you own an iPad and you're in the market for a case to protect it and something to improve the sound quality, the ORA on Kickstarter might be just the product. ORA is a case that has eight tuned front facing speakers that surround the screen of the iPad. The developer of the product says that it will turn your iPad into a portable entertainment system.

ORA promises five times the sound volume as your iPad can deliver alone. ORA has an aluminum frame and is designed to secure your iPad and protect it from drops and bumps. It's also available with a folding cover that looks a lot like the folding cover Apple has for the new iPad models.

That cover not only protects the screen of the iPad, but it folds back to prop the tablet up for comfortable viewing. The sound system case has its own internal battery providing up to 10 hours of playtime per charge. The internal battery of the ORA charges from your iPad charger. ORA is on Kickstarter right now seeking $450,000 with 34 days to go. So far, it has raised slightly less than $49,000. It will cost you at least $99 to get your own ORA.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
