Omniscent Siri 3D Printed iPhone Cover: The Ghost in the Machine
March 6th, 2012
Sure, Siri can be bossy or frustrating at times, but it’s certain that she’s safe to stay in iOS 6 (and probably iPad 3 and the iTV, too.) In tribute to the digital personal assistant, 3D printing company Shapeways has assembled a group of artists to shed new light on Siri and her impact in our lives.
Each artist was asked to submit their own personal vision of Siri. The winner in the 3D design catergory was SaGa Design with their Omniscient Siri case. As soon as I saw it, I thought of Masamune Shirow’s epic Ghost in the Shell. I think this would fit right in.
The case features the image of a woman (presumably Siri) pushing out of the front of the iPhone 4 like something out of Videodrome. Naturally, the case was rendered using Shapeway’s 3D printing tech.
Thanks to the wonders of 3D printing, you can buy one of these if you’d like to. Prices start at $90(USD) for the white version, and go up to $350 for a glossy gold-plated version. Just don’t ask me how to fit it in your pocket.
