Original iPad with fancy new Smart Cover? Yes, please!

• 24/03/2011

So you’ve got yourself a generation one iPad and feel kind of bummed out that the super magentically-delicious Smart Cover wasn’t built for you.  We feel your pain.  Or more like Dan Provost did, and he decided to do something about it.

Dan took a few rare-earth magnets and strategically glued them in the corresponding spots on his original iPad’s side … making the Smart Cover work almost as if it was meant to be partnered with the first iPad.  Almost.

So, the hibernate function won’t work the same as it would if you had an iPad 2.  Otherwise it seems to function just like it should.

Take a look at the video and see for yourself.
