Flip-cover cases for smartphones could be considered the Fort Knox of cellphone protection, but they can slow you down when it comes to answering an incoming call. Moshi thinks they have a solution in the form of the SenseCover, a new faux leather flip-style case which features touch sensors that allow you to answer phone calls, check the time, and turn off alarms without even opening the front cover.

SenseCover also has a built-in window that lets you see who’s calling before you decide to open the case or not. Should you decide that person is worth your time, a magnetic clasp will make sure the cover stays folded back and doesn’t interfere with your call by flapping in your face.

As pointed out by Gizmodo, the “proprietary embedded plates” are on the inside of the cover as well as touching the display, which passes the small electrical charge from your fingers through to the iPhone’s display. A simple but effective way to give you access to many of your phone’s features without any unneeded energy expenditure.

Moshi’s SenseCover is available now for $45 in Steel Black or Brushed Titanium.
