    So let's say, for example, you want to take in a ballgame at Yankee Stadium in New York - a facility that banned the use of iPads (as covered on MMi). Perhaps with Tobias Wong and Chelsea Briganti's new camouflaged iPad case, you won't get tossed out of the ballpark for breaking the rules. With this new - and admittedly most peculiar of iPad cases - you can enjoy your favorite tablet computer without some folks knowing you even have one in your possession.

    This nifty little iPad case disguised as a used document envelope, comes with an "interdepartmental mail background for the home screen" and helps you hide what you're working on - or what games you're playing - while out and about in public. Any passing observer will simply think you're holding an envelope and reading whatever material that's sitting atop this formal-looking business document holder.

    Remember when Bart Simpson would sit on his bed reading a comic book tucked into his text book so anyone peering into his room would think Bart is studying? Think of this "camo case" working the same way. Of course, if someone approaches you from behind, there's a good chance your cover will be blown. What won't be blown - or at least, broken - however, if your actual iPad. Inside the camo shell is a real hard case to protect your tablet when stowing it on the go.

    Whether you find this unique case to be practical or impractical, there's an excellent possibility that the business of innovative iPad cases is just getting warmed up.

    Yeah, interesting. Perhaps it would "camo" better if the ipad had no black borders and the screen encompassed the entire landscape. I vote NOT PRACTICAL.

    Well, this is the new leader in the "stupedest-news-item-ever" for MMI. I can think of NO reason to ever use this, most particularly for the reason cited in the opening post. What moron thinks you could even take a real envelope like that into a game and they wouldn't make you check it at the gate?

    A fool and his money are soon parted.

    Hell maybe if they had disguised the 4g iPhone prototype in something like this maybe that whole fiasco could have been avoided.

    Why would anyone mess with an envelope? It would have been a better idea to make a clipboard and a fake stack of paper with the iPad in it.

    -I better get a cut of the profit if someone uses my idea

    Actually Apple did try to disguise it by putting it in a case which made it look round like the current iPhone models...

    But I vote FAIL on this one. Exhibit A:

    they're coming up with the most retarted cases ever. all theyr going is covering up the back part and leaving the screen vulnerable.
