Ever try holding your iPad funny at one end so you could aim the sound back at you? Us too. That's why they're making the Ora iPad Sound System ($150). Designed by a team that has created products for the likes of TDK, Intel, Vizio, and Nike, the aluminum case/stand packs eight front-spacing speakers (tuned by the former engineer lead of Bose) into the space surrounding the screen, giving you a far more immersive sound experience than you're used to from your tablet. Of course, it's louder, too, but you might not even notice when you're getting blown away by audio from apps you used to consider "tinny". We backed the Kickstarter project.
