The idea behind this project is quite simple, i need a way to protect the screen of my Kobo Glo eReader with a cover, that doesn’t bulk to much this sleek device.
Also a good plus could be the possibility to use the auto sleep/on feature of the Kobo. A quick search on google (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=198477) shows that the features is based on a magnet put near the lower right corner of the kobo. After a pair of tests, the idea seems to works… putting a circular magnet near the corner, the Kobo goes to sleep, removing it, the Kobo wakes up.
Using my Silhouette Cameo and Inkscape i cut out the inner and outer layer of the cover, from white PVC and an inner soft layer, made of soft rubber foam.
The graphic on the outside is a my idea, like the button that covers the magnet on the cover inside.
Anything else is quite auto-descriptive, but for any other inquire, please, leave a message
Hope will help some other Kobo lover!
Good reading! 😀
The magnet inside his hole. This little thing is the one able to wake up and put to sleep the Kobo.
