Your phone is your life and already a modern-day multi-tool in the virtual realm. But it doesn’t have any app to fix your bike, open a can or saw a piece of wood. Now the TaskOne iPhone case allows you to multitask from the physical world, giving Apple’s smartphone the functionality of an old-school Swiss Army pocket Knife.
Ex-Apple engineer Addison Shelton, who developed the case, says the TaskOne won’t add too much bulk or weight to your iPhone. The case designed in Atlanta, Georgia, weighs in at just 89 grams. It offers a portable, pocket-sized toolbox with 16 separate tools in a polycarbonate case. This includes a 2.5 inch (6.4cm) knife with both serrated and fine edges, and the opposite side has a 1.8 inch wood saw. Other tools include a roller, a medium Phillips screwdriver, seven metric wrenches, small and large flathead screwdrivers, medium Phillips screwdriver, and pliers with an integrated multi-size wrench take care of torque-related tasks. Other tools include wire cutters, a wire stripper, a ruler and spoke wrenches.
Besides tools for handymen, there’s also the obligatory bottle opener and kickstand. In spite of all these gadgets, the case is still impressively thin and it’s made out of polycarbonate so it doesn’t effect the reception of your phone and at the same time it is very light and strong. TaskOne pursues functionality whether you are an engineer or you are going camping out in the woods, while keeping your phone protected and still looking stylish.
