About this project
Over a year ago it became my mission to change the way products are designed and made. I dedicated my career to this and started TRTLBOT. We at TRTLBOT are a small team of artists, thinkers, and engineers who invent eco-friendly multifunctional accessories that are made in the USA. We are dedicated to improving the environment and to social responsibility.
We believe being eco-friendly is about buying recycled products, being locally made, and doing more with less.
Donation & Pledge funding will be utilized to ensure a successful launch. We will begin manufacturing of The Shell for iPad 2 in early November.

The Home Button Protector is very easy to use. Simply flip over the case and slide the Home Button Protector up. Slide it back out when it's not needed
To re-access the Home Button, simply slide down the Home Button Protector.
We believe in giving back to the community. When you donate iPad Shells to a school of your choice, you're helping us accomplish this goal!
The Home Button Protector is a safety feature designed to prevent the home button to be pressed. This functionality is great for families who want to share their iPad with their children without having to worry about apps and/or settings being modified.
Simply select a kid-friendly application, slide in the Home Button Protector, and hand the iPad to a child. Your personal content and other apps will remain protected while in use.
This function is also great for educators who use the iPad with students. With the Home Button Protector students remain engaged in the app instructed. This feature ultimately transforms the iPad from a recreational device into an educational tool!
Like all of the products we've made, the iPad Shell is Eco-Functional. All TRTL BOT accessories are eco-friendly and multifunctional!
