iPad stays strange with INKO: electric ink and tatooed leather

Straight from the crew at Appropriate Audiences, the iPad cover/keyboard known as INKO uses electric ink to create a unique approach to tapping out sentences. This piece of equipment functions as a cover for the iPad as well as a full-functioning keyboard and is made primarily of leather. Standard ink was applied to the inside to create a keyboard with a 3D printer hacked to be a tattooing machine - a marvel in and of itself. Under the hood, electric paint makes circuits and sensors on leather to make for a truly odd piece of work.
