‘Swiss Army’ iPhone Case

‘Swiss Army’ iPhone Case
Retail

Only 3mm thick, and made of aerospace-grade composite materials, the cover holds a screwdriver, bottle opener, knife and more.

If an iPhone case can enable vets to monitor pets’ heart rates, it stands to reason there are probably a lot of other tools and utilities that could be packed into a similar product. Enter the ReadyCase, a feature-packed cover for Apple’s popular device that is still less than 3mm thick.

Now nearing the end of a highly successful Indiegogo campaign, the ReadyCase is made of aerospace-grade composite materials for durability. Besides simply protecting the phone, however, it also packs a raft of useful features. Included in the ReadyCase, specifically, are a headphone clip; an integrated multitool device with two blades, a screwdriver, and a bottle-opener; an integrated lens ring, with three iPhone-compatible camera lenses; and an integrated 8GB or 16GB USB drive that doubles as a kickstand. The video below demonstrates the ReadyCase in action:

With shipping expected to begin in February, the ReadyCase’s Los Angeles-based maker has set preorder pricing starting at USD 40 for an 8GB version; every contribution gets case bodies for both the iPhone 4/4s and iPhone 5. Starter packages for retailers, meanwhile, begin at USD 2,500. Tech-friendly retailers around the globe: one to get in on early?
