Trexta iPhone Cases Make It a Snap To Look Retro [Review]

In a world of plastic cases, Trexta’s iPhone covers stand out.

Made from natural materials like leather and wood, they bring back fond memories of bowling trips in the old two-toned station wagon.

In other words, they’re retro badass.

Recycled Cutlery Becomes Perfect iPhone Stand For Kitchen

iFork and iSpoon

From the “oh that’s awesome” category — which quickly leads to the credit card coming out of the wallet  – some of the most unique and whimsical iPhone stands I’ve seen from Forked Up Art.

Stands are $30 each, come in portrait and landscape orientations, and are made of genuine used cutlery.  The best form of recycling I’ve seen recently. It’s earned a place in my kitchen!

Thanks to iPhone Savior for the tip.

The Speck CandyShell iPhone Case Looks Sweet Enough To Eat [Review]

The Speck CandyShell iPhone Case Looks Sweet Enough To Eat [Review]

The Speck CandyShell iPhone Case is a brightly-colored protective case that not only provides first-class scratch protection, it really makes your iPhone pop.

The $34.95 CandyShell case combines a hard outer plastic shell with a soft silicone liner. Available in 13 different color combinations, you can almost taste the bright Jolly Rancher colors. I have been using the purple CandyShell and it makes me think of grape-flavored snacks like snow cones or popsicles, yum!

The Urban Tool iPhone icaseBelt Is A Fanny Pack, But A Cool One [Review]
The icaseBelt from Austrian company Urban Tool is a modern version of the old-fashioned fanny pack, retooled for the iPhone/iPod age. It holds everything you might need for a day trip or jog, and includes built-in controls for your iPod.

Trouble is, the icaseBelt is way too cool for someone my age, but I like it anyway.

Incase’s Perforated Snap iPhone Case Might Be The Lightest Around [Review]

Incase’s Perforated Snap iPhone Case Might Be The Lightest Around [Review]

As noted in my last review, I’m not a big fan of iPhone cases (or any sort of cases, really. Or even clothes — when I was a kid, I ran around nak…uh, but back to the case). When I saw Incase’s Perforated Snap Case, and heard it was one of the lightest and leanest iPhone cases, I expected to find a case I would finally keep permanently attached to my 3GS. Well, not quite.

New Apple Patent Describes Accessory To Transform Into DS-Like Gaming Handheld

New Apple Patent Describes Accessory To Transform Into DS-Like Gaming Handheld

Ever since the iPhone’s release, one of the most pervasive criticisms of Apple’s handhelds as dedicated gaming devices have been the device’s lack of analog controls. It’s a criticism that has seemed considerably limper as time goes on and developers have figured out to utilize the iPhone’s touchscreen and accelerometer effectively, but for certain genres like fighting games and twitch shooters, there’s still something be said for the good old d-pad.

If a new Apple patent is anything to go by, Cupertino agrees. They have filed an application for a snap-on D-Pad with control buttons that wraps around an iPhone or iPad to offer more precision gaming.

Vers Wraps The iPhone In Plush Wooden Plate Armor [Review]

Vers Wraps The iPhone In Plush Wooden Plate Armor [Review]

There’s a reason high-end car interiors are often accentuated with wood — it wears far better than many other materials, lends a rich, warm look, and each piece is unique due to striations and markings inherent in the wood.

Add the fact that wood is a renewable resource that — if care is taken to plant more trees — won’t harm the environment, and the result is a beautiful, warm, hard-wearing case from Vers that’ll also appeal to the green-conscious.

Substrata’s All Wood iPad Cases Are Gorgeous

Substrata’s All Wood iPad Cases Are Gorgeous

Although only in the prototype phase right now, these wooden iPad cases Substrata look gorgeous.

Coming in flavors of dead tree flesh including walnut, zebrano, wenge, mahogany and maple, and shipping with both hinged and sliding lids, the Substrata iPad cases (replete with microsuede lining to prevent scratches) should be available in June for an unknown but probably fairly expensive price.

See the hinged lid prototype after the fold.

Vaja’s Ivolution GT Is The Formula One Of Fancy iPhone Cases [Review]

Vaja’s Ivolution GT Is The Formula One Of Fancy iPhone Cases [Review]

At first I thought this steel grey Ivolution GT case from Vaja was made from some new space-age material. It is textured but smooth, and has a luxurious silky feel. It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize it’s made from a pretty old material — leather.

Commanding a primo price ($100), the Ivolution GT is a primo case. The more I use it, the more I like it.
