    Hey guys,

    I've been looking into this since i read about a Carbon Fiber Smart Cover for the ipad 2, wich made me think about putting a carbon fiber skin onto a smart cover to achieve the same effect.

    http://droconcepts.com/iPad2/carbon-fiber-ipad-2-case-cover.html

    and i've seen pics and a video from iCarbons.com with carbon looking smartcovers, it's unclear to me if these are just smartcovers made from carbon or theres some actual skin.

    cant seem to find anyone selling skins at any rate..

    does anyone ever thought about this ? skins for smart covers ? is anyone making stuff like this ?

    sorry if theres already a topic about this, only found a topic discussing droconcepts smart cover!

    @stickerboy - skins for smart cover pls.

    this is actually a smart idea. Im wondering if Stickerboy could come up with a skin for the smart cover. A clear film on top of the smart cover would probably preserve its beauty. :) :) :)

    I agree. I don't think that skins for the smart cover is a bad idea if done right, but really has no business on the leather covers. If done at all, this really should be for the poly covers only.

    Any risk of damaging the leather upon removal?

    what we need is for apple to make a black polysterene or whatever that is, instead of hogging the black color for the leather... i know it's marketing cause black is a more appealing color and that way people have to spend the extra cash.. "dam you capititalistic bastids !", but seriously a black cheaper smart cover would have been nice.
