After the numerous times I’ve dropped my iPhone, I totally believe in the protection of a sturdy case. Thanks to cases, my current phone still has no scratches, so when I inevitably upgrade, the pain in my wallet will be a lot less thanks to the resale value I’ll get from a non-messed-up phone. While my current case offers good protection, this case is definitely something I’d like to try out since it offers a neat feature that others don’t.
My phone is always in silent mode, but I rarely miss any important notifications because I use the flash notifications setting. This case design takes that basic concept of visual notifications a bit further.
The Endliss Smartcase has LEDs built into its back, that will flash in a number of different ways, displaying icons and other information to let you know of any notifications that you might get.
The case has an 8×16 LED grid that syncs to your iPhone 5 via Bluetooth 4.0. It can also display the time and comes with a 1,500 mAh battery, which is enough to power the lights and give your phone a bit of extra juice.
The Endliss case was shown off at CES 2013 last week. It’s a pretty slick concept, but there’s no word on a price or release date yet.
