Apple isn’t the most used mobile operating system in the world, but it does seem to have a phone that has the most number of crazy oddball cases, with ideas ranging from a cup holder, a bottle opener, and even pepper spray.
Many of the ideas in this list started on crowd funding websites, such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, while others have come from the depth of the net themselves. Which cases would you want on your phone?
Pepper Spray iPhone Case
Price: roughly $50
We weren’t aware how dangerous carrying a phone had suddenly become. Apparently, there’s a need for a case with pepper spray in it.
The makers of this case, Smartguard, have apparently integrated a safety tab so it doesn’t just go off, but if you do need to fire a burst of pepper spray, you can temporarily blind people when you remove the canister from the phone.
Another Kickstarter project, this one turns an iPhone into the shadow of an old Bolex film camera, complete with three lenses that mount over the top of the iPhone camera, the rotation switching between a 180 degree fish eye, two times telephoto, and a wide-angle lens.
It’s obviously not for everyone, and good luck sticking this in your pocket, but if you don’t care and love the camera in your iPhone so much, it might be worth checking out.
Like the iZZi, this is another successful Kickstarter project, yet again based around the idea of photography.
This case works by being a converter, and making it possible to turn the iPhone into an eyepiece telescopes, microscopes, and binoculars.
Imagine being able to photograph what’s going on under the microscope, or hooking it up to a telescope and watching the stars. This case makes that possible.
