Simplism Is The Coolest Case Maker You Have Never Heard Of [CES 2013 Gallery]



CES 2013 bug LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – I was so impressed by Simplism neat case lineup that I thought I’d post a few pictures of the Japanese company’s wares, even though it’s still looking for an international distributor.

Below you will see the wonders of a case made to look like wood; the world’s thinnest iPhone 5 case, a clever Smart-Cover-locking, over-the-shoulder rear skin for the iPad and and a screen protector and cover which heal if they are scratched.

At the top of this post you see the self-healing iPhone cover, which also comes as a plastic screen protector. It’s made of a material that scratches as easy as any other, but will heal over almost immediately – -even faster if you give it a rub with your finger.


The iPad mini case, with a strap. It’s almost perfect for reading.


This case is a super-thin shell with a strap. It seems kind of goofy but at a show like CES it is really ideal for always having an iPad to hand. Plus it has a strip on the spine which locks the Smart Cover in place so it can’t fall off. Neat.


Finally, Simplism has these cool textured cases which look like wood, leather, woven rattan and other natural materials. In the ersatz capital of Las Vegas, these fit in perfectly.
