The CalypsoKey can be used to unlock a door, or for almost any other NFC function

One major feature missing from Apple's iPhone, that's commonplace on many high-end Android devices, is near field communication (NFC). This allows NFC-capable devices to interact with one another, to make no-contact payments at businesses, or even to lock and unlock NFC-enabled door locks. Calypso Crystal is hoping to rectify the situation with its new CalypsoKey.  Read More

The snappgrip is a case and ergonomic hand grip/controller that can be attached to a smart...

There’s a reason that so many digital cameras have a hand grip built into their bodies – it makes them easier to hold onto when taking pictures. Unfortunately for people whose smartphone doubles as their camera, phones lack such a feature. London-based product designer Lee Harris decided to address that shortcoming, with his snappgrip case for iPhones 4 and 5, and Samsung Galaxy S3.  Read More

The TK-FBP048ECBK iPad case features a full-sized physical keyboard

The iPad's touch screen can be both a blessing and a curse. While touch input can be great for some applications, the onscreen keyboard can be found lacking when text input is required. Of course, the solution to that came quickly in the form of cases with Bluetooth keyboards built-in. However, most of these still have two issues; they generally aren't full size, yet they still tend to add a lot of bulk. This new case out of Japan solves those problems by offering a small form factor and a full-sized keyboard.  Read More

The Sensus can read all kinds of gestures from the back and top of the case

One of the features of the PlayStation Vita that has drawn a lot of attention is the rear touch panel. It allows users to input various touch commands without actually smudging up their screens with dirty fingers. The new iPhone case from Canopy called the Sensus adds the same feature to iPhones. With it, users can play their games all they want without getting ugly fingerprints and smudges all over their screens.  Read More

The iExpander improves the iPhone's flash, extends battery life and expands memory

What if there was an iPhone case that could add three major functions to the device? That is exactly what Charlie Corry set out to do when he came up with the iExpander. He made an iPhone case that adds support for microSD cards, charges your phone and improves the function of the camera's flash in low light situations.  Read More

At first glance, it is hard to tell that this is not a laptop

The CruxSKUNK is a new case for the iPad, designed to make your device look and feel like a laptop. There are already plenty of iPad cases with keyboards built-in, but most of them look like standard cases, and do little to add style to the iPad itself. With this new case, however, you might actually confuse your iPad for your laptop.  Read More

The Lifeproof nüüd takes a dunking at IFA 2012

One of the appeals of tablet computers is that they’re “good to go” – you can just grab them and use them wherever you want. The fact that they’re not particularly real-world-proof, however, takes away from that a little. The same thing could be said about smartphones, which is why so many people now keep their phones in rugged, waterproof cases. Well, Lifeproof’s just-launched nüüd case is like one of those smartphone cases, but for the iPad. It’s not the only such product to ever exist, but it is able to do the job without anything covering the tablet’s screen.  Read More

It isn't the sleekest wallet we've seen, but it is one of the burliest

The Pelican Smart Wallet is a mini Pelican case for your cash, cards and ID.  Read More

Singapore-based 3D printing and design company Polychemy continues this trend with the release of a striking new series of cases suitable for iPhone, iPhone 4S and Blackberry.  Read More

Making a call using FreedomPop's iPod touch case

The iPod touch is more or less an iPhone without the phone functionality. When connected to a Wi-Fi network, it can do most of the same functions as the iPhone. However, Wi-Fi is not available everywhere, and without it, the touch loses some important functionality. FreedomPop is launching an iPod touch case for US$99, that brings free 4G data to touch owners.  Read More
