Forget Higgs Boson particles, and checkout the Non-Newtonian case for Tech 21

image
I'm still not sure what Non Newtonian physics means, but it was wise of Tech 21 to ship me a gooey sample of the material used in their cool 'Band’ case so I could see and feel how different it is. It's not rubber and it's certainly not plastic, but it's a strong, protective grippy substance that feels very comfortable in your hand. And it looks snazzy, too, in the clear + orange model that I tried, as well as the many other variations on their website.



NUU ClickMate case system adapts to your needs

image
In a perfect world, one case would meet all of my needs. Sometimes I want my iPhone clipped to my belt, and other times I want to carry my phone and perhaps a credit card, and often on trips and at trade shows, I want a built in extra battery. The ClickMate system from NUU tries to be the solution.



TinyLightbulbs.com is a home for all of those cool Kickstarter crowdfunded, indie developed products

image
Regular readers of my articles will know I am a big fan of Kickstarter and crowdfunding, and I do my best to find the coolest projects and share them with you. But I can't always find the best items, and once they have been funded, they fall off my radar. Fortunately, there is TinyLightbulbs.com.



M-Edge's SuperShell iPad case now available for iPhone!

image
I wrote, favorably, about M-Edge's SuperShell protective foam case for the iPad, before, so it is great to see that they've added a version specifically for the iPhone.



Finally, the Spike from SoloMatrix is a real BlackBerry-style keyboard for iPhone, and no Bluetooth or batteries required

image

In what may be the final nail in the coffin for RIM and their BlackBerry product line, SoloMatrix has developed a compact, non-Bluetooth, non-battery powered keyboard that does its job and gets the heck out of the way when you don't need it. The Spike is a combination case and reversible keyboard. Surprisingly, starting at just $20, the Spike is priced similarly to traditional cases that don't have the added keyboard functionality.

Otterbox: A Tale Of Two Cases. Something Old, Something New...

image

If you are looking for a great protective case for your iPhone then Otterbox has got you covered! This company has been in the business of making cases that provide serious protection (for what is likely one of your more prized possessions) for years.



OtterBox presents new battle-ready Armor series case!

Here is a case that Hannibal would have lovingly embraced, and why not? You could potentially use it (with iPhone encased) as a small personal shield for say your sword hand, what with that steel latch fused to the bottom there. Ok, that might be a bit much, but it will protect your iPhone better than anything short of stuffing it into a bank vault. When out conquering Romans, you can't afford to have your iPhone get smashed on a rock, or crushed under a falling elephant, which will likely ruin your day! OtterBox has a serious Armor case coming for the serious conqueror (insert Police, Fire, Soldier, EMT, Construction worker, etc.)... All "proofs" apply (dust, drop, crush, water)--coming soon!



iPhone Cases, iPad Covers, iPod Sleeves | iPhone Life Magazine

The market for iPhone cases is increasing exponentially with the release of the new iPhone 4S.  The companies that make the cases are always looking for more ways to capture their customers attention.  Whether practicality or style is more important, we review the products so that you don't have to.

Are you looking for a durable clip-on case for your new iPhone 4S? There are plenty of choices that exist already, thanks to the fact that the new iPhone's dimensions are the same as the original iPhone 4. One of the more recent cases to hit the market is Ballistic's Sport Rugged Universal Smartphone Pouch. How does it stack up to the competition? Read on to find out.  

iPhone cases are getting to be like jewelry… there seems to be a different case for every occasion. If the occasion is rugged outdoor activity, the Ballistic offers a tough, scratch-resistant nylon vertical flip case with a thick clip that holds on snuggly to a belt or strap. While it is just slightly on the bulky side, the case is lined along the bottom and sides with a stitched ridge that will absorb the shock of a drop fairly well.

If the occasion is more flashy (Gaga Style)... There are a lot of case makers out there, but there's only one Lady Gaga.  And LuxMobile has licensed her images and designs for their line of cases.  No strangers to luxury licensing, LuxMobile also offers cases with Ed Hardy and other trendy designs.  More feminine-friendly cases are becoming popular, and the Lady Gaga collection presented several options.  There is the understated 'diamond pattern' Romance style, but true Gaga fans may want something more outlandish.  No 'meat' cases currently, but you never know. 

Surc is a case and app combo that turns your iphone into a universal remote control. What makes this device stand out from the crowd is that the unit is sleek and adds little to the size or weight of the phone. Usually you have to add an attachment to the phone to convert it into a remote. Not with this one.  This remote goes above and beyond your basic remote. You can control multiple items in a room. On top of that, I was really impressed with the capabilities and customization that this unit allows. Add the buttons you want, move them around the screen, even use gestures to control your device. Shake the iPhone and you turn on or off your TV. Watch the video to see even more features.
