Who needs a mood ring when you can have a mood case? Case-Mate’s dual-layer Mood case has two parts: a flexible, shock-absorbing sleeve with metallic purple button covers, and a rigid backplate adorned with temperature-changing film. When you’re not touching the case, it’s mostly blue—the bumper is a bright metallic turquoise, and Case-Mate’s signature metal accent is at the bottom is an oil-slick of blue-purple-pink. When you touch the film on the back of the case, it changes from blue to purple-pink (depending on the temperature). Temperature-changing film is definitely not new, but if you fiddle with your phone frequently I think you might get some neat results.

For a different option, try something that lights up. I’ve seen plenty of iPhone cases with built-in lights. Usually these lights serve a functional purpose, like lighting up your face so you can take the perfect selfie. But the lights on Case-Mate’s new Luminescent case are purely aesthetic—all they do is shine light on the case’s inlaid crystals for extra sparkle. It’s just a little gimmicky…and I love it.
