If your 64GB gold iPhone 6 Plus is not attention grabbing enough then you will need one of these — a protective case that turns your iPhone into a nunchaku! Now you can whip out your pride and joy and flap it about to your heart’s content.
From what we can decipher on the source website, the iPhone Trick Cover is made out of aluminium and there are versions for the iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The Trick Cover’s trick hinge and sliding mechanism allows the case to double up as a stand with adjustable angle and height. And naturally, things this crazy can only come from Japan, so the iPhone Trick Cover is made in Japan.
There’s a built in card slot as well, and the makers suggests you use the slot for an NFC-enabled like a TouchnGo card for fast and super-stylo access to the LRT and other places where you need TouchnGo.
If you’re keen, the people who are selling the Trick Cover can ship it worldwide, so might be able to get it delivered here as well. The case itself costs a reasonable 3,400 Yen or about RM100 excluding shipping. Not bad considering the many shenanigans you can pull with this wacky accessory.

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.

This iPhone 4 case from Vans is sub-zero cool. The rubber case features Vans’ signature waffle sole and other details that make a pair of Vans loafers so timelessly iconic. We particularly like that “Off the Wall” heel tag.
The Vans Rubber Waffle edition iPhone 4 case retails for US$28 but as you would imagine, the casing is flaying off the shelves so sourcing for one is going to be a challenge. If you’re desperate for one, there are a few on sale on eBay going for US$100 — ouch!

Stand out from the crowd with this snazzy 80s phone case. RM199. Spotted at S&J, One Utama. Says on the box that it fits iPhone 3, 3GS and iPhone 4. We would think it will fit the iPhone 4S as well.
But RM200 is quite steep for what essentially is just a plastic cover.
Just when you think you can’t get enough Angry Birds merchandising, Gear4 has announced several speakers and docks of the popular slingshot game. The red bird speaker and stand that uses 3.5mm audio jack goes for 49.99 pounds, while the green pig iPhone speaker dock goes for 69.99 pounds. There’s also the black bird speaker and dock that’s able to fit an iPad for 69.99 pounds.
No availability details were announced so far but we believe our local suppliers that brought in the Angry Birds iPad cases would bring them in as soon it is available.
You can check it out over at Gear4’s product page.

The Egg Sleeve is a 4G MiFi that takes a form factor of a battery pack for the iPhone 4. So now instead of carrying two separate devices (iPhone and MiFi), you can power your iPhone 4 with 4G connectivity in a sleek piggyback sleeve form factor.
We’re not sure if the Egg Sleeve is also a battery but it does come with a 1500mAh battery to give you 5 hours of 4G connectivity bliss. Overall the sleeve adds 68g of heft and just over 17mm of bulk (in terms of thickness) to the iPhone 4. Negligible considering the how much faster things load up on 4G.
The KT Egg Sleeve retails for KRW128,000 which about RM350 at today’s exchange rate. For around that price we can definitely consider something like this mating with our iPhone 4 (provided of course the 4G network performance is up to par).
So we’re putting out to P1 and Yes this challenge. The product people from both operator know that this is a bloody good idea. Jadi, tunggu apa lagi? Which among Malaysia’s two top 4G operator is going to bring this innovation to Malaysia?
The iPhone is a competent digital shooter there’s no denying that, but like any digital camera built into a smart phone these days the digital zoom feature on the iPhone is still lacking when it comes to snapping a decent shot from afar.
If you’re always in a scenario where you wished you had more zoom in you iPhone’s camera then this 8x telephoto zoom lens could just do the trick — though the downside is attaching the lens renders your iPhone unwieldy.
The iPhone Telephoto Lens comes with a matte black case that you use to attach the lens onto your iPhone with. To compose your shot, just twist the grip on the lens’ manual focus ring to make it sharp, like you would a normal DSLR, and snap away.
Other goodies included with the lens is a mini tripod and a lint-free cleaning cloth. The iPhone Telephoto Lens goes for US$35 excluding shipment. That’s about RM107 at today’s rates.

Each one is unique, hand-sown and is made out of authentic vintage fabric. The ones that caught our attention are the ones that is made out of vintage military uniforms. We just love how the many textures and fabric patterns add so much character to each case, definitely a crowd stand-out!

Sometimes a great idea just needs enough people to believe in it for it to become real, and this is one of those great ideas.
The team at Satarii has a working prototype concept of a sensor enabled motorized dock that pivots on its horizontal plane to follow your movement (up to 180-degrees), and it looks rather impressive considering that its a prototype.
But for the dock to go from prototype to production stage Satarii needs US$20k and that money comes from supporters who sponsor the project. The current tally stands close to US$16,000 with a little over a month before that call for funding ends. At the rate that this dock is garnering attention there’s no doubt that the project will raise enough funding but still the additional support is more than welcome.
So head on over to Satarii’s IndieGoGo page to find out more about the project.
But before that, take a look a Satarii’s pitch video right after the jump.
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.
