Tired of using the ubiquitous iPad for the usual iOS gaming, web-browsing or taking awkward pictures? With a BuffLab protective screen cover, your iPad just might be useful in the kitchen too. Now, before you cringe at slicing a carrot on your fragile $499 tablet, South Korea's hard-as-nails BuffLab screen cover promises to absorb all the damage from the culinary pounding. Apparently, its shock-absorption properties are so strong that it can even withstand the force of a walnut-cracking hammer. Just remember not to rinse the iPad afterwards, as even the world's toughest screen protector doesn't stand a chance against soap and running water.
