ReadyCase For iPhone Packs Every Gadget Known To Modern Man

Some gadgets pick one thing, and do only that thing. And they do it very, very well. Other gadgets try to pack in everything possible, and they usually end up doing everything badly. This is called the Swiss Army Knife Approach (SAKA), and if you ever wondered why the Swiss are neutral in all wars, now you know.

The ReadyCase takes the latter approach, and like any good SAKA device, it’s way more fun to marvel at the amount of widgets the makers packed in than it would ever be to use.

In terms of raw utility, the ReadyCase doesn’t disappoint. Here’s the list of functions:

  • Headphone clip
  • Multitool
  • Kickstand
  • USB drive
  • Lens Ring
  • Another frikkin’ kickstand!

Amazingly, it doesn’t look like some crazy invention from the pages of Mad Magazine, either — the ReadyCase manages to be very similar in size to a regular ruggedized case, or maybe one of Killian’s prized iPhone wallet cases. The product page says that it’s just 3mm thick which — when translated into U.S. measurements — is just between “thin” and “middle-sized.”

And there’s more. Aside from the glorious redundancy of two kickstands, the multitool itself is worth a mention. Here’s what it has:

  • Serrated blade
  • Regular blade
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Bottle opener

To secure one of these SAKA cases, you’ll need to pitch in to the Indiegogo project, starting at $40 for the 8GB case. Indiegogo, if you’re not familiar with it, is like Kickstarter only less well known — kind of like the Pepsi of the crowd-funding world.

Pitching can be done now, for expected delivery in Fabruary of next year.

    Good luck getting that through the TSA.

    My good ol’ iPhone 3GS was stolen a few weeks ago and I was forced, arm twisted and everything, to upgrade to the new iPone 5, so I’ve been looking for cases. This is THE case. I think John Ivy himself would approve.

    Fabruary?

    Will it fit the iPhone 5? All their demos that they show are of the iPhone 4s.

    They say Fabruary of next year… but it’s more like Janutober or Octocember. Save your money and duct tape these items to the back of your existing case, it’ll look just as good and you’ll save yourself some cash!
