Often times while using my iPad on location, direct sunlight makes it next to impossible to see my screen clearly. This is especially troublesome when using my iPad as a wireless field monitor. Short of hiding under a swath of black Duvetyne, I have yet to find a great solution for keeping the sun off my screen. Until now…
In just a couple weeks, a new company called HoodiVision will be releasing the Hoodi magnetic shade for iPad (with other models to follow). The $34.95 Hoodie just pops right onto your iPad using a series of magnets, and instantly shades your screen from direct sunlight. It’s simple, clever, and cool.
HoodiVision wasn’t officially showing at MacWorld. Instead, I just happened to bump into the developer while walking the isles. As it turns out, it’s one of the coolest things I saw at the show.
It seems like a good concept, especially since I reside in the Sunshine state, however the design seems a little much. I have an iPad mini and bought it because of how small it is. This looks like it would be too much for me to carry.
