This iPhone Case Moonlights As A Lint Brush

Just when you thought every possible iPhone case has been invented, someone goes and does this.

Startup company, Stitched Products, has just announced their first product that they plan to fund through Indiegogo, an iPhone case than can be used to pick up stray hair and lint. Just when you thought you’d seen it all.

The company claims that the odd fabric attracts lint and hair, and even shows the case being used to clean off a linty black shirt in their pitch video. They even claim that it’s easy to clean the case itself and it doesn’t leave any residue like a traditional sticky lint roller.

This is such a weird product, but I kind of want it to be real. I find myself getting covered in lint all the time and it’s a real problem, I can’t count how many times I’ve been on a date and a girl crawls her way to safety through the bathroom window. I assume it’s because of my linty shirt, because it couldn’t possibly be my personality.

Anyway, they’re about halfway to their goal on Indiegogo, and early-bird cases go for $25 (which there are still plenty of).

Embercase Protects Your iPhone, Keeps Your Hands Warm and Toasty

Embercase iPhone case

 

Anyone who has tried to dial or type with freezing fingers knows that the task is futile, or extremely time-consuming at best. You can get gloves with capacitive patches on the fingers so you can still use your phone when you’ve got them on, or you can get the Embercase and do away with the gloves.

The Embercase is designed to keep your iPhone safe from the elements while doubling as a hand warmer to keep your hands warm and toasty. It connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth so you can control its temperature via a companion app. You don’t have to worry about stuff overheating, as the case is made from titanium with a layer of Aerogel ceramic fiber to insulate your iPhone from the heat.

Thanko Mobile Battery with Handy Mist Keeps Your Phone Charged, Your Face Moisturized

Thanko Mobile Battery with Handy Mist

Where’s that moisturizer when you need it the most? Winter is coming, and the cold air can be harsh on skin. Seeing as most people don’t leave home without their phones (and their power banks!), Thanko’s mobile battery seems like a smart solution to low power and dry skin. Aside from being a portable power source, it comes with a built-in spray that keeps dry skin at bay.

The battery itself has a 2,200 mAh capacity which should give you enough power to make a couple of emergency calls or send messages. To charge it up, all you have to do is plug it to your PC for three hours or so. The Thanko mobile battery with handy mist is available for 4,980 yen (or about $43.)

iPhone Case Puts the Feeling of Green Grass In Your Hand

Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case

Lush greens, the feeling of freshly-cut blades of grass on your feet.. what does that imagery remind you off? Whether it’s a golf course or a typical summer’s day when you get to do nothing but lie back on a hammock, it often brings back fond memories (with the exception being those who had to endlessly mow other people’s lawns, that is.)

Now you can revel in those grassy memories by getting the Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case which is exactly what its name implies it is. The case is wrapped all around in a lush field of faux grass that looks and almost feel like the real thing. It’s not the practical or most durable of cases out there, but that isn’t really the point with this case, is it?

The Shibaful phone case is available for $84.

A Drumstick For Your Ear? KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

 

KFC Japan is at it again. Remember the chicken keyboard and mouse they recently offer to their patrons? It looks like their higher-ups decided that that wasn’t enough, so they came up with the drumstick iPhone cover. It’s so ridiculous that it almost makes you want one, just for the heck of it. Even Colonel Sanders looks like he’s rolling on the floor laughing like there’s no tomorrow (in case you’re wondering, his speech bubble says something along the lines of “Why is it so big?”)

Well, that’s what we’re wondering, too. The only way to get one of the cases was to win it from KFC Japan. Dang, that’s a huge case. Ironically, it’s making me not want to eat chicken after looking at it.

Iron Throne iPhone Case

If you don’t have the time or energy to make one of these Game of Thrones-inspired phone stands, then you can just fork 25 bucks over and be done with it.

Equalizer Phone Case Grooves to the Beat of Your World

Equalizer Phone Case

What’s better than a case that sufficiently protects your phone from cracks when you accidentally drop it? Why, an interactive one like the Equalizer Case, that’s what! It’s made from tough polycarbonate plastic to provide an added barrier between your phone and whatever hard surface you might bump or drop your phone on. What sets it apart from other cases is the glowing display on its back that looks like a graphic equalizer.

The coolest part? It reacts to ambient sound or music, so the levels go up or down, depending on the current sounds around it–like, say, the sound of your voice when you’re taking a call or the tunes when someone’s playing music. It uses its own battery, so you don’t have to worry about it draining your phone’s power, and has an on/off switch in case you need to tone things down.

The Equalizer Case is available from ThinkGeek for $14.99.

Backpacker Phone Case is a Stand, Earbud Holder, and Amplifier

Backpacker Case

The Backpacker phone case has a lot of things going for it, with the exception of being sleek or thin because it’s neither of those. Rather, the case makes your phone look like the hunchback of iPhone-dame (sorry, couldn’t resist!), but that hump right there is where all its extra functionality lies.

For starters, you can pull it out to turn the case into a stand for your phone. At the same time, it serves as an amplifier to give your phone’s speaker that extra boost. Lastly, you can push it back to its dome form and roll your earphones to store it and get them out of the way.

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.”
