After two years of producing keyboard cases for the iPad Crux is raising funds to produce their Mona Lisa. The CruxSKUNK, despite the terrible, terrible name, looks like it delivers. With 8 patents pending the device literally looks like Apple made it. The entire case with the iPad strapped in is only 19mm thick and appears to be a nearly seamless extension. The case features a full-sized QWERTY keyboard, no cramped crappy rubber cased keyboards here. All of this comes at a premium though. The minimum pledge needed to secure a CruxSKUNK and a leather sleeve is $155 + $10 shipping.
