Touch-Sensitive Case Lets Users Control Games From The Back Of Their Phone

Touch-Sensitive Case Lets Users Control Games From The Back Of Their Phone

The Canopy Sensus case gives users the ability to control games and other features from the back of their phone instead of their screens.

Accessory maker Canopy has introduced a protective iPhone case called ‘Sensus,’ which has touch capacitive sensors built into the back and right edge. These give users the ability to control games, etc. from the rear of their phone instead of their screens. Instead of covering up elements with their fingers, the entire display remains visible. The case plugs into the connector in the bottom of the phone, providing immediate response time and also the power needed to run its dual microprocessors.

Touch-Sensitive Phone Case Puts Fingers Into, Rather Than On Top Of, Game Play

The Sensus aims to enhance existing games and create a whole new genre for game interactions. Users can also zoom into photos using the sensor on the right edge and can navigate maps by sliding their fingers across the back. The iPhone 4 and 4S case is available for pre-order for $59 and will be shipping in the first quarter of 2013.
