PALM COAST, Fla., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Conceived, designed and developed by the founder of Strotter, Serge Pylkovas, Across and Platforma empower users to work on their tablets while standing, allowing them to have both hands free to type.
Vertical messenger Platforma features a leather and high-density nylon shell, self-closing flap, custom polished hardware, and a quickly adjustable strap. A plastic snap-on cover secures the iPad on the bag when in use. The Across, a protective, wearable iPad case with strap, is made from genuine leather and lined with suede-like microfiber. Across also folds into a stand for typing and watching movies. Both products transform seamlessly into sling-type backpacks with one swing and one pull of a buckle.
Platforma, roughly 12"x 9" x 2.5", retails for $169. Across retails for $99. Both products are available at strotter.com.
Strotter will be showcasing Across and Platforma at the MacWorld/iWorld 2013 in San Francisco. Booth number 1049.
"I never liked holding the iPad in one hand and typing with another... Then I saw a guy drop his iPad when the subway train suddenly stopped," said Pylkovas. "I thought it would be nice to somehow suspend the iPad to protect it from a fall and so that both hands were free to type. The next morning I woke up knowing what to do…I also realized the bag may be used as a backpack, as an added benefit. I travel a lot and ride a motorcycle, so I thought the bag should appeal to commuters and travelers of all kinds, people on the go, and all folks who may need to work standing up. The design is very simple; the bag works together with a human body to form a mobile desk… Words don't do these bags justice.

Serge Pylkovas, who worked as a financial IT consultant in Boston for many years and holds Master's degree in mechanical engineering says it took almost two years from the idea to the final product. Pylkovas now works full time running Strotter.
