Turn Your iPhone into a Retro Calculator

Here’s a fun way to fool your friends into thinking you’re still living in the 1970s by turning your shiny new iPhone 4 into a classic digital calculator from days gone by. This case snaps onto the back of your iPhone 4, and really does look just like one of those old Casio VFD calculators with the blue/green displays.

Unfortunately it doesn’t actually work, so it’s permanently stuck on “0.7734” (or “hELL.O” when you flip it over. I’m surprised they didn’t go with “8008135”, which is what most of us guys spelled out on ours when we were kids. And “5H3LL01L”. I suppose you could always just rubber band an actual calculator to the back of your iPhone if you really want one that works. But there’s a working calculator app on the front-side already, right?

This particular case comes from Homade’s “Flashbacks” series, which also includes an equally-fun retro Famicom controller case too. They’re both available over at Strapya World for about $15 (USD) each.
