I’m sure that there are plenty of reasons why you’d want to video something secretly, whether it’s a business meeting or a something of a more personal nature. The MirrorCase definitely makes it easier to inconspicuously capture video or stills with your smartphone.
Normally, when you take pics or videos with your smartphone, your phone ends up right in your face. The MirrorCase was made so that you can record and snap pics without having to hold your phone up anymore. It does this by adding a small, angled mirror behind the iPhone’s camera lens. This simplifies self-recording, as well as recording lectures, seminars, and anything else you might want to record. It also functions as a neck rest or angled desk stand for your iPhone, and to redirect the LED flash forward so you can use it like a proper flashlight too.
There is a free companion app that properly flips images and recordings. It also allows you to put a different image on the camera screen while you’re recording, as a sort of privacy screen. The MirrorCase costs $49.95(USD) and is available for the iPhone 4/4S. There will be an iPad version available soon as well.
