Mophie has introduced the Bevy, an unusual case for Apple’s second-generation iPod shuffle. It costs $15 and is available in five colors.
What makes the Bevy unique is that it was designed as a result of Mophie’s “ Illuminator ” project at this past January’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco, Calif. Mophie invited attendees to doodle designs for new products in their booth, and Bevy was created by a 17-year old student named Jared Fiovorich. Mophie paid Fiovorich for his design and gave him a case of Bevys to share with friends and family.
Bevy is made of clear polycarbonate with a stainless steel insert. It provides a way to wrap excess earbud cords, acts as a keychain and provides a bottle opener as well. It comes in green, pink, blue, orange and silver.
Two other Illuminator projects, Schlep and Montage, are also in development.
