Apple toying with 'Smart Covers' for their iProducts?

Patently Apple today shows that Apple is thinking about putting covers over their products that might give the feeling of actual keyboards and/or gamepads.  This product category isn’t an entirely new idea.  4iThumbs has a similar $20 product which is has been on the market for a few months.  While we’ve tried 4iThumbs and liked the feeling, the idea of carrying cover around seems kind of unwieldy, at least on portable electronics.
