Deal Of The Day: 14% Off On DodoCase

redesign_dodo_mf_final

Oh no, not another iPhone case, right? Yeah, well it is. But that’s ok because we so rarely cover them, and well, this one’s kind of neat. The DodoCase makes your iPhone 5 and 5S look like a little book.

Handcrafted in San Francisco, each iPhone case features a book-like exterior made from high quality fabric, an innovative, reusable adhesive for attaching the device to the case, and an elastic strap to hold the case securely closed.

Remember dead tree books? They’re still around, and there’s a certain nostalgia in disguising your modern breakfast-logging machine as an old-school booklet, so we kind of dig it. There are 8 colours available, and instead of having to pay $35 for it, you can have it for $29.99.

Transform Your iPhone Into a Spy Camera With Peek-I

Peek-i

Whatever your reasons are for wanting to spy on your surroundings or the people around you, then here’s something that can help you out: the Peek-I, which is basically an attachment for your iPhone that’ll let you see around corners or areas at odd angles that you normally won’t be able to see with your eyes alone.

Peek-I is meant to go over your camera lens, where it works its magic by reflecting images this way and that to let you check blind areas and take images at a 90-degree angle.Continue Reading

Peek-I iPhone Camera Attachment Lets You Take Sneaky Shots

peek-i-640x448

We’re not sure how to feel about this product. It’s a tiny pivoting mirror that attaches to your iPhone’s camera and allows you to capture a shot of something that’s not directly in front of you. It pivots 360 degrees, but opens at a 45 degree angle, which means you’re limited to capturing something that’s exactly to the side of the phone’s plane: straight up, down, or sideways.

Now, you could make a case that there may be situations where you want to capture someone candidly, and that having a camera pointed at your subject may well draw their attention and cause them to lose whatever pose interested you in the first place. That’s the artistic argument. But then you have the creeps… So the question is, do you judge a product negatively because it has the potential to be abused? We’re leaning on the “no” side, which is why we’re telling you about Peek-I. It’s a cool device, as long as you don’t use it stupidly.

It’ll set you back all of $15 on their very well funded Indiegogo campaign.

This iPhone Case Will Light Your Cigarete

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 3.30.29 PM

There are iPhone cases for just about any function, and you can now add ‘cigarette lighter’ to that list. The Supernova iPhone Case contains a heating element that gets hot enough to get your cancer stick going… and that’s all it does. The advantages is that none of your friends will steal it, the way that lighters tend to get “misplaced” once they’ve been lent out. It’s rechargeable through MicroUSB, just like most gadgets out on the market today.

Bumprz Anti-Cases are For Minimalists

Bumprz

If you’re a fan of minimalist phone cases, then you’ll love Bumprz for sure. It’s not a case in the traditional sense because it’s actually comprised of four steel bumpers that are meant to be attached on all four corners of your phone. The coolest part? It seems to work better than other cases that cover the entire back of your device.

So how does Bumprz work? It emphasizes protecting the corners of your phone, which sustains the most damage when it’s dropped. In effect, it also prevents the seam of the screen from hitting corners. Bumprz is constructed from a strong metal and attaches to your phone using a 3M adhesive which directs “the forces from the impact to the face and side of the device where the device can handle the high compressive and shear forces without failing.”

SMS Case Sends Smoke Signals

iPhone-Case-Smoke-Signal

This is an iPhone case that makes messaging less, not more, efficient. The SMS, by artist/hacker Dennis DeBel, stands for “Smoke Messaging System” and it uses a rather bulky oil vaporizer to generate wisps of smoke on command. You then record these “signals” on the rear facing camera and send the video over to your friends for interpretation. We suppose that if you want to communicate secretly, in a made up smoke signal system, this is the thing for you. But the problem is it’s not a real product, only something of a prototype that has no real plans for commercialization.

So This is an iPhone Case Made From Chocolate

iPhone Chocolate Case

 

Phone cases come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. One of the most unusual we’ve seen so far are these iPhone cases made from blocks of dark chocolate. The cases are a result of a love project by Grove, which is a designer of handcrafted wooden tech accessories, and Charley Wheelock of Woodblock Chocolatete.

The edible chocolate cases are compatible with the iPhone 5, 5S, and 5C. Like most cases, they allow access to the phones various ports and buttons. They’re described as being sleek and thin, and even smooth to the touch. They probably won’t stay that way, especially if the phones are being used in the sunny outdoors.

Grove co-founder Ken Tomita explains: “This was a great opportunity for us to team up with another locally owned business and combine our crafts to create something even Wonka would be envious of. They’re not for sale, mainly because we can’t keep making them without gunking up our machines, but don’t worry, all the manufacturing waste is being recycled in our bellies.”

A New Kind of SMS: Smoke Messaging Service?

iPhone Smoke Signals Case

 

Back in the day, our ancestors used to communicate to one another using nothing but smoke signals. Now you can do as what they did in the past (with slight modifications) with the SMS case, with SMS standing for “smoke messaging service.” It’s a case designed by Dennis de Bel which hides a chamber filled with lamp oil inside.

When the button on the side is pressed, the case heats the lamp oil up to produce wispy clouds of smoke. Of course, in order to respond via smoke as well, others will also have to have an SMS case or another contraption that can produce smoke.

Seems a little backward in this day and age of instant communication, so maybe that’s one point Dennis wanted to touch on with his project.

iRecorder iPhone Speaker: Play New Beats With a Vintage Vibe

iRecorder

 

Remember those vintage recorders that you used to carry around way back when they were the hottest gadgets around? Digital music players and smartphones have rendered them obsolete, but they’re about to make a comeback in a roundabout sort of way.

The iRecorder Speaker is a handy speaker that’s compatible with the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5. It sports that vintage recorder look on the outside, but it won’t be able to play your old cassette tapes. However, it will be able to play the tunes on your phone. Just pop your mobile into the cassette slot and push down the orange play button.

The iRecorder comes with a pull-out carry handle and a USB charging cord. It can be powered by a micro USB or batteries, just like your old recorder. It’s available online for $50.
