    The Gripster Wrap ($70) adds an improved velcro strap to the traditional Gripster case, along with a six-piece folding front cover designed to fold up out of the way at the rear of the iPad, while still allowing a 360-degree rotation from the rear hand mount. The Gripster case is also available for $50 without the front cover. Available: February 2013.

    The new Gripster Type ($130) introduces a Bluetooth keyboard into the company's Gripster case line, with a soft material design on the keyboard itself for comfortable wrist positioning along with full-deflection keys. Available: April 2013.

    Switch ($150) is a portable Bluetooth speaker with a somewhat unique design; it's a soft rubber coated box slightly smaller than a milk carton, with a volume control on the top. The unit also includes support for charging a device via USB, a standard 3.5mm aux-in port, and 14 hours of rechargeable battery life. Switch will be available in February 2013 in five color options: black, white, red, slate, and blue.
