Mophie, the JuicePack company, has flipped out and gone in a totally new direction, head first into an equally crowded market: iPhone sports camera enclosures. Mophie’s version is called the OUTRIDE, in ALL-CAPS.
You know the drill: rugged, waterproof case, integrated lens (wide-angle in this case) and a variety of mounting options. What sets Mophie’s effort apart (other than the rather nice styling) is the neat-looking Outride app, which will be a free accompaniment to the case, and looks a lot like an Instagram for sports videos.
The case will be available in September, and will come in kits from $130 to $150, depending on your mounting options.
