DESCRIPTION: Get a new screen for your iPhone with this smart case. The back of the popSLATE is an E ink screen which can display all kinds of pictures or informations, even in the brightest sunlight. The dedicated app lets you easily capture pictures and share them with your friends but you can also choose to display notifications, maps and so on. You don’t even have to unlock the main screen to browse through your pictures: just do it from the back screen thanks to the tactile interface. The case is powered through the Lightning port of the iPhone 5 and consumes very little power. Once loaded, a static image can be displayed for a week without touching the battery life. The API will be available to developers so chances are that many apps will make use of the great possibilities offered by this case. The popSLATE is only $24,000 short of its $150,000 goal on indiegogo so the case will very likely be commercialized. Give a $99 contribution and you will get you one in June 2013.
AMUSEMENT RATE: There are so many cases out there offering very questionable functionalities. A case is not supposed to be a Swiss Army knife, its prime purpose is to protect your precious phone. The popSLATE can do that but also brings an exciting and innovative feature to your phone. Careful Amazon, your Kindle just a got a pretty serious competitor.
