Apple’s Smart Cover doubles as a screen protector and a stand; it even turns your device off or on when hiding or revealing the screen. The Smart Cover doesn’t offer complete protection to the back of the iPad 2, so it is still exposed to scratches and dents. The Smart Shell helps out where the Smart Cover doesn’t, it’s a 0.8 milimeter thin shell and prevents those ugly scratches and dents. Additionally, it comes in a clear color so you can still show off that beautiful Apple logo. The Smart Cover snaps right onto the back of the iPad leaving space to attach the Smart Cover.

Alex has enrolled in a Kickstarter project to make the Smart Shell a reality. The pledge is for $10,000 and will end in 27 days. Pledge amounts vary from $1 to over $1,000, each with their own caveats. See the site for pledge breakdowns. If you’re interested in something like this for your iPad 2, pledge some money on the page and help this project become a reality.
SnapCases is already selling the Flip Case, a case with a built-in stand for your iPhone 4. The Flip Case looks like a great product for a nice price. The Smart Shell case for iPad 2 will retail for $30 on the Snap site.
