Shortly after people first got their hands on the Nexus 7, someone found that it responded to a magnet placed in a certain area, much like the iPad's smart cases. None of the cases I saw had this, nor could I find one that opened over-the-top like a reporter's notebook, so I decided to make my own. I came here for inspiration, and started with this project
While I waited for my sugru to arrive, I decided to use a reporter's style Moleskine notebook I already had, and considered how to "hide" the magnet so that it wouldn't contact the screen directly and potentially scratch it.
This is what I came up with.
List of materials:
2 packets of sugru
small magnet (mine came out of a cheap refrigerator magnet, but it does have to be a solid one, not magnetic tape)
one large sheet of craft foam
quick-drying glue (superglue, etc - I used Titebond)
duct or gorilla tape
recommended: a ruler
I apologize in advance for the quality of the pictures.
