Tech Culture: Top accessories for your iPad

1:44 /

Brian Tong shows off three very different add-ons that will make your iPad more useful.

Hey. What's up, guys? Brian Tong here with CNET.com and we know a lot of you have iPad. So, what we wanted to do is really show you some unique offerings of accessories. We know there's a lot out there but these three really send out for different reason. And we'll start up with someone who loves to travel, who's on the go and loves movies. This is the Seagate Wireless Plus and it costs $199. It's a wireless 1 terabyte hard drive. And what it allows you to do is stream movies, musical photos, directly to three different devices at the same time and it has a 10-hour battery life, so for someone like me that's also on the go, this is my bff. Now, the next product we have here, this is the Belkin Ultimate Keyboard Case and what makes this one unique is there's others out there but it entirely protects the backside that has this kind of classic/leather surface on the back. Then when you flip it open, it connects and you can set it at 3 different angles, so that gives you some versatility. And then once you set it at an angle, it automatically connects through Bluetooth. You don't have to flip on to switch, and then you can type away and really, this is the closest experience that you'll get to having a laptop like feel with your iPad. And finally, you'll see this guy. This is an iPad with a photo lens. I know you've seen that whole phenomena where people are holding up their iPads, taking pictures in public. Well, you know what, it's here. You might as well embrace it even though I think it's dirty, but check this out, this is a telephoto lens from photojojo.com. It costs $25 and they make a set for the regular iPad or the iPad Mini and it includes a telephoto 10x or 12x lens. This is really a virtual package to get those tight shots from something way far away and you know, if you're okay with Bean, that person, this is the kit for you. So, there you go, three different type of accessories for your iPad. I am Brian Tong with CNET.com.
