Third party Surface Pro case seeks Kickstarter funding

There's a definitely lack of cases and covers made especially for Microsoft's Surface tablets. Sure, Microsoft sells the Touch and Type Covers but there are some users who might want a case that wraps around the entire tablet.

This week, a new campaign began on Kickstarter to raise money for a Surface Pro case that looks like it will offer owners of the Windows 8 Pro tablet some extra protection and a few new features. It's called the ProKASE and according to its description:

At its core, the ProKASE is a protective enclosure that completely covers the back of the Surface Pro. In addition, the cover can wrap around in either direction, giving you the option to use the ProKASE as you would like to.

The ProKASE will work even with the Surface Touch or Type cover, and the standard version will come in either black soft leather or suede, with a limited red or blue suede cover version also planned. The frame of the ProKASE will be made of durable ABS and high-density polyethylene. Most importantly, it will come with two extra USB ports and two extra microSD card readers.

The Kickstarter campaign is looking for $55,000 to fund the ProKASE, and people who pledge at least $59 will get the ProKASE without the USB or two microSD card readers, or $79 for the full version. People who pledge more money might be able to get some extra SD cards for more storage. If you want to pledge $5,999 or more, ProKASE states, they will " ... make you a one of a kind, 3D printed case to have one of your own great ideas you can hold in your hand and use!"
