TAKTIK Case Adds Substance to Your iPhone
June 25th, 2012
This iPhone case looks extremely sturdy, and you can bet that if you drop your iPhone inside of this thing, it won’t get a scratch. The TAKTIK iPhone case is a robust enclosure that will protect your iPhone no matter what happens.
The TAKTIK case was designed by the Chicago-based studio MINIMAL, the same guys behind the insanely popular TikTok and LunaTik iPod nano watches. The case has a shockproof suspension system that’s enclosed between to anodized aluminum bezels and compression seals to prevent water from seeping in.
You can even order it with an additional Gorilla Glass lens to further protect your phone, while still allowing you to use the touchscreen. The headphone jack is made out of aircraft-grade anodized aluminum that snaps up to offer rapid access to the port. There is a dedicated lever to open it quickly as well. They also will be offering an optional bike mount for the case, which is a great idea.
The project is being launched through Kickstarter, and was completely funded within a couple of days. They have already amassed over $200,000, with a goal of $150,000, so it definitely will be produced. The TAKTIK case starts at $75(USD) and goes up to $250 for a ‘Future-Proof’ version that ships with one case for your iPhone 4/4S and one for the upcoming iPhone 5.
