Over the past several weeks we've gone through a surprisingly simple process with the folks at WOODCHUCK with some premium customized wooden bits for some of our favorite devices. What you're going to see here is a set of three cases from WOODCHUCK from their "Customize Your Case" series of wood designs.
Moshi has introduced a couple new covers for the newly unveiled iPad Air, all of which are slated to launch sometime this fall and follow shortly after Belkin introduced its own offerings for the Apple slate. Along with the new covers also comes the iVisor, a bubble-free washable screen protector for the iPad Air to keep the display in tip-top shape.
There's a China Sourcing Fair going on this week with a selection of electronics and accessories, and in the masses a set of iPad cases has appeared. The iPad mini 2 (the 2nd generation iPad mini, that is) in particular has raised eyebrows as one carrier seems to have revealed the thickness of the device as slightly larger than that of the original pad. This case - like all early release cases - could be innacurate, but as they say they are working with early models, it would appear that this device could take on the same increase in size revealed with the transition between the iPad 2 and the iPad 3, with retina display.
If you've had your hands on the official Apple-made iPhone 5c cases with a real-deal iPhone 5c, you may have noticed an oddity on the backside - the word iPhone is covered up here and there by the uniform design of the case's grid of holes. This grid presents a bit of an oddity in Apple design as each part generally compliments the other - and thus steps forward the developers at Lunar Lincoln to save the day. They've created an app by the name of CaseCollage to make everything more than just OK - they've made the case a thing to behold by filling up all the holes with photos, symbols, colors, or otherwise entertaining bits and pieces of visual greatness.
With Apple recently unveiling new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, we all knew that a glut of new cases and other accessories would be hitting the market. While some cases are simply designed to help protect your phone, some are designed to protect your device and make a bit of a fashion statement. A company called Rocketcases has announced a line of cases supporting the iPhone 5S that old-school gamers should really appreciate.
Supposing you saw the iPhone 5c and didn't find Apple's own official cases to be appealing as you'd wished, this week you may be in luck. Industrial Designer and 3D illustrator Martin Hajek has created a set of NURBS models for customization of this basic case, allowing users to get creative as they please. The first thing Hajek did was to open up the center column of holes along the backside of the iPhone 5c case to reveal the iPhone logo.
In addition to making the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C official this week, designers at Apple have introduced a set of cases (official Apple-made cases, that is) for both devices. Both cases work with the most basic titles imaginable: iPhone 5S Case and iPhone 5C case, while their makeup is quite different. While the 5S cases move with a real-deal aniline leather, the 5C cases work with silicone exteriors and a soft-touch interior.
It would appear that the folks at accessory makers X-Doria have let the cat out of the bag a bit early with cases for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. While it's possible that these cases were made with early models of these devices in-hand, it's a bit more of a push for reality when an accessory maker commits actual plastic to the idea that these devices are ready to be revealed. They've also committed to the idea that "iPhone 5S" and "iPhone 5C" as the final names of the two devices.
Logitech has announced two new folio products aimed towards iPad Mini owners who want a bit of protection and a mobile keyboard without bidding farewell to the tablet's thin form factor. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio and Folio Protective Case are both aimed at the smaller iPad model, and promise to be both ultrathin and ultralight without compromising in quality.
Findables is offering cases for a variety of smartphones, among them being the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S 3, that feature custom QR codes on the back, as well as a fold-out bottom section that serves as a sort of stand. The QR codes can then be registered with a profile by the user, allowing others to scan it and access that profile, something particularly useful if the device is lost while out and about.
