The makers of a successful and fully-funded Kickstarter project brought actual working models to CES, complete with packaging, pricing, and a near-term ship date. Xvida says its all-in-one iPad case, stand, and wall/car mount system, along with an aluminum desktop stand, will ship in February to Kickstarter backers and pre-orders. The basic Boomerang case, stand, and magnetic multi-mount unit that connects the Boomerang to a stand or magnetic surface will retail for $70, according to Xvida representatives. A wall-attaching “headrest” mount is $25, as is a car mount package that attaches to air vents. An eye-catching, single-piece machined aluminum stand for the Boomerang runs $70 and should also ship in February. An iPad mini version is in the works, Xvida representatives said.
