Welcome to the jungle
This week’s roundup features two new lines of iPhone cases with camouflage decorations. Will you ever be able to find your phone again? Read on!
This company has teamed up with Mossy Oak to offer the SLXtreme 7 in Break-Up Country camo ($150 MSRP; starting at $115 on Amazon) a camouflage-themed version of its rugged solar-powered iPhone case. It includes a 4,000-mAh battery, can survive a two-meter drop, and is waterproof up to two meters deep. (Of course, it’s camouflaged: If you drop it in the forest, you might never find it again.)
Speaking of camo, X-Doria has released a line of wilderness-themed iPhone cases: the Defense Lux ($35 MSRP; same price on Amazon), a military-grade polycarbonate case; the Defense Shield ($30 MSRP; same price on Amazon), a similarly tough metal case; and the Defense Gear ($30 MSRP; $27.95 on Amazon) a “full body, no bulk” case for iPhone 7. Each is available in several varieties of camouflage.
Kanex’s Premium Duraflex Lightning Cables ($24.95 MSRP; select colors available for $18 on Amazon) is built with “a durable yet flexible metal housing that offers premium protection ... this cable will never fray and never tangle.” It’s Apple MFi certified, and comes in your choice of five different colors.
Want to put together a pro-style video broadcast on Facebook? SlingStudio ($999 MSRP) creates a private video-grade wireless network which allows multiple devices—both professional cameras and smartphones—to synchronize and broadcast live video in HD. And if you have the app, you can run the entire operation from your iPad, choosing which camera angle viewers see as an event breaks in real time.
UrbanEars this week announced the launch of Stadion ($99 MSRP), a Bluetooth headset with a “team” of coils that wrap around behind your neck to create a comfy and customized fit. A single charge offers up to seven hours of audio playback.
The iPhone 7 Plus Wallet Case ($34.50 MSRP) is “a compact wallet that carries your iPhone 7 along with your most important card and cash.” The leather case comes in black, blue, and red.
Are there tougher iOS case than the ones made by Otterbox? The iPad Pro Defender Series Case ($89.95 MSRP; $49 on Amazon) encases your 9.7-inch tablet in three layers of protection, including a polycarbonate shell a rubber slipcover, and a built-in screencover. It’s available in black or “very berry.”
