CRKT iNox Stainless Steel Case Turns iPhones into Trek Communicators

When I was a kid, I always wanted one of those communicators from Star Trek just so I could flip it open like they did on TV. I eventually got one of the toy ones, and when I grew up, I finally got a real communicator – when the cellphone came along. Now you can combine both ideas with CRKT’s iNox case for the iPhone 4/4S.

This lightweight (1.9oz) stainless steel case features a hinged front cover which flips up like the front of a Trek communcator (though not by just flicking it.) But this one is decidedly more modern, and you get the benefit of all of the tech hiding inside Apple’s wonderphone too. I also like how there’s a convenient cutout on the front so you can see the time and date even when it’s closed.

The iNox case can also double as a stand when placed on its side, so you can watch movies or videos on your iPhone hands-free. I definitely like the fact that this case is made out of durable metal, so it’s not likely to break – though I’m always concerned that metal cases might interfere with signal quality. That said, I think there are enough openings on the side of the iNox that it shouldn’t be an issue.

If your iPhone’s contact list is filled with people named “Scotty,” “Bones,” and “Spock,” head on over to ThinkGeek, where you can grab the iNox case for $59.99(USD). If you want it in other colors beside black, pop on over to CRKT, where they offer it in gold, silver, rainbow and camouflage.
