Most phone cases are just that, cases. Aside from protecting your device from scuffs and dings, the run-of-the-mill phone case doesn’t really do much else.
Well…that’s before the ReadyCase.
The ReadyCase is only 3mm thick but it packs more goodies than any other smartphone case out there. It has a rear panel that houses an interchangeable camera lens ring so you can attach various lenses made for the iPhone, a holder for an accompanying 8 or 16GB thumb drive (the thumbdrive doubles as an adjustable kickstand both in portrait and landscape mode). There are slots for you to store your headphones and cables, and there’s even an integrated multi-tool that can be two types of knives, a screwdriver and a bottle opener.
The people behind the ReadyCase say that the case will be made out of “aerospace grade composite materials” and is asking for US$40 from you to fund the development of the case with a goal of $15,000 by late October. If they do get enough funds the case is expected to ship early next year.
Head over to after the jump to check out what the ReadyCase can do.
Here’s one from a company called SmallWorks. The BrickCase4 retails for US$19.99 (or about RM61.50 at today’s exchange rate) on Amazon.
The BrickCase4 iPhone 4 case is made out of one piece molded ABS plastic, the product page doesn’t say if there’s a soft silicone lining inside the case to protect the glass panels on the iPhone 4 from scratches. We’re guessing it doesn’t, and looking at the design, the BrickCase4 is more of a novelty than a protective case.
Yeah sure it looks cool and yes you can assemble Lego blocks on it but we don’t think its really that practical and comfortable use. But if you’re still interested, hit up the source link for more info.
