Action Case for the iPhone 4: iGo Pro

by Lambert Varias

Woodman Labs’ GoPro cameras are not terribly expensive for what they’re capable of. But if Matt Ozawa and Jimmy Bajza have their way, people who already own an iPhone 4 can turn the phone into a capable substitute for the popular POV camera. Ozawa and Bajza are currently developing the Action Case, a shockproof case makes the iPhone 4 compatible with any GoPro mount.

The Action Case is made of polycarbonate plastic and has built-in shock pads for added protection. It’s not waterproof, but Ozawa and Bajza have said that they are also working on a separate, fully submersible case.

I think Ozawa and Bajza are on to something here, but I think they couldn’t have picked a worse time to launch an accessory that’s only compatible with the iPhone 4, what with the impending release of the iPhone 5 all but confirmed. I’m not saying that all iPhone 4 owners will upgrade to the iPhone 5 if and when it’s released, it’s just that the buzz for the product steals some of this announcement’s thunder. It will shortly become an accessory for an “obsolete” product.

But still, iPhone 5 or no iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 is still a very capable device, and I’m sure many owners of older smartphone models still have their eyes on it. You can support the development of the Action Case by donating on Kickstarter. A pledge of $49 (USD) or more makes you eligible to receive one of the first Action Cases, which will be sold for $40 if it becomes a real product. You can also check out its official website for more info.
