The speakers deliver five times the sound volume of the standard iPad speaker and ORA’s battery provides ten hours of play time, designed to match the iPad’s battery life. Unlike the default iPad speakers, which face away from you, all eight of the ORA’s speakers are front-facing. The iPad is encased inside of the ORA, which provides not only a firm hold on the device but also a protective external layer.
ORA isn’t coming to retailers without your help. The firms are launching a Kickstarter campaign, starting today, to raise $450,000 to help with manufacturing and engineering costs. Like most Kickstarters, different pledge tiers have different rewards. Visit the ORA Kickstarter page for more details.
