Or how about the DODOcase, a hand-crafted cover for the iPad and other tablets that can be personalized to look like your favorite book?

Located in Seattle, Washington, Humblefactory aims to develop and design tools that help people around the world build items that more mainstream manufacturers can’t … or won’t.
