Given the fact that a number of new hybrid devices are making their way into the tech world, many of us had wondered whether Apple will decide to go with an iPad/MacBook Air hybrid device. Tim Cook pretty much toasted those hopes when he denied any such ventures by saying, ‘You can converge a toaster and a refrigerator but those things are probably not going be pleasing to the user.’


However, all hope is not lost yet as the ambitious team behind the Oona smartphone has now decided that if Apple has no plans of doing so, it will. For that purpose, the team is currently working on trying to bring together $90,000 in funds so that they could launch a new project which will aim at making an iPad work like a MacBook Air. The funds will probably come from Kickstarter and the project is being called ‘The Brydge.’

The look and feel of the proposed hybrid device, which is being touted through images and videos, is that of a really cool keyboard that climbs together with the iPad and literally converts it into a laptop. It weighs only a tad bit more than MacBook Air and the keyboard that comes to be attached with the iPad is made up of aerospace-grade aluminum. Also, the clamps that clings to the iPad to bridge the keyboard and the tablet and high-quality material.

The keyboard is a full QWERTY keyboard which, according to the company, is really thin, ‘The beveled edge is as thin as possible to provide the largest keyboard possible’ being only 0.33-inch thick. The keyboard, or the Brydge, has the same dimensions as the iPad, so it really does give the impression of being a part of the tablet when folded.

However, the price may of some issue to the iPad users. It is expected to range between $150 and $170 for the model which comes without speakers and $180 to $210 for the model with speakers.
