This is the Franc, a clever, minimal iPhone wallet which the maker Chris Anderson (no, not that Chris Anderson) inexplicably pronounces as “fronk,” in some crazy attempt at a French accent I guess.
Despite this oral boo-boo, the Fronk itself appears to be a rather desirable Kickstarter project.
The Fronk consists of a pair of rubbery c-shaped brackets which slip onto the iPhone 4/S and provide a little space at the back for credit cards, while obscuring precisely 0% of the screen. The idea is that you can quickly clip in the cards and keep the whole lot in one pocket.
Clearly Anderson designed the Fronk to live in a world without cash i.e. the U.S. Normal countries which still use paper money and coins will probably find the Fronk less useful, including — with some irony — France.
Want one? Then grab that credit card from your bulky, spine-twisting leather billfold and cough up $25. Anderson says that the manufacturing is ready to go, so this Kickstarter project is really little more than a pre-order.
