Having a tablet device is now considered pretty normal, the technological advancement and huge demand have made them rather affordable than an over-the-top luxury item. But some tablet owners have an urge to stand out of the crowd and ensure that either their devices or the way their tablets are dressed up, are pretty much different from the rest of the people. The shortest and perhaps the smartest way to do so is buy an unusual case. However, sometimes, case makes take the word “unusual” way too far. Let’s take a look at top 5 weirdest iPad Air cases together.
It’s only September on our calendars, but men are already thinking of Movember and how they can officially lay down their razors no matter what their wives and girlfriends will say. Yummy Pocket had a brilliant idea to put a moustache on an iPad case to make it seem that the device itself is also showing solidarity to the good cause of his owner. Made from soft wool felt and durable vinyl, the envelope tablet case is just as protective as it is unusual.

Some people just have way too much time on their hands, but a very vivid imagination to go with it. Frank Hsueh has come up with a very unusual use for ordinary duct tape – creating a DIY Duct Tape iPad Sleeve. The maker wrote to TUAW and besides sending pictures of his masterpiece, he also provided some info about the tablet sleeve. The case is crafted using a bubble envelope, double-sided tape, Apple sticker from another product, and of course lots of duct tape. Moreover, the inventor took things another step further and used the tape core to create a highly stable iPad stand. The case is surely functional, but not something you want to take to a business meeting…
