The summertime is perfect for travel, and many individuals wait all year long to get that two-week or one-month vacation to relax and catch up on some sun. In some cases, individuals get all summer off (such as teachers), though others work through the summer. The weekends are always perfect for vacations, and with travel comes the question: “What will I do with my IPhone?” This question can be answered only if you know what it is you want to do this summer and where you want to be. If you want to vacation outdoors, you would be wise to purchase a waterproof iPhone case so as to snap pictures in the water or underwater when a friend or family member makes a funny face or blasts another with a water gun. For those of you who do not care for water-blasting fun as much and just want to do something different with your iPhone, the following iPhone cases may help your personality shine through.
A useful iPhone case for every student, doctor, lawyer, or forgetful grocery shopper is the Binder Clip Case. The Binder Clip Case comes with a small tablet under a clip that is attached to the back of the iPhone case. It is useful for medical doctors and lawyers, but it is rather handy for everyday customers who forget to run errands or forget to pack their grocery list and realize it after arriving at the grocery store. Now, with the Binder Clip Case, you do not need to worry about forgetting; the case will retain the sheets of paper for you. This means that you have less to worry about in the long run. Currently, the case is sold in Japan and costs 1980 Yen, or $25 dollars (American currency).
Have you seen the latest Star Trek movie? While there are talks of a sequel coming in 2013, the latest movie on file bearing the name “Star Trek” is an excellent movie. For die-hard “Trekkies,” the Vulcan IPhone Case is a way to show your love for Star Trek and model your pride. The Vulcan case comes with a Spock ear on the back of the protective cover; when you place your cover (phone inside) to your ear, it looks as if your normal ear has been traded in for an ear from another place! The case is made of silicone rubber and comes in both black and white colors. Jeff Chris designed the Spock ear case specifically for both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s. This case will cost less than the Binder Clip Case at just $15 per case. For a price this small, showing off your “Spock ear” will draw attention when you enter the movie scene in 2013.
There are other cases that you may find appealing, but these crazy iPhone cases may need some time before they show up at an Internet site or electronics store near you. Of the twenty-five crazy iPhone cases presented by Mashable, there are a few that stand out. One notable case is the “Angry Birds Rhinestones,” a case that is made with an Angry Bird symbol from the iOS/Android game app “Angry Birds.” This is for the hardcore gamer who cannot get enough of this game. If you are a teacher who likes to carry your iPhone 4s with you, make it a “school material” by placing it in a Pocket Calculator IPhone Case. If you are a chocolate lover who wants to make people stop and stare, purchase an Artificial Chocolate IPhone Case. It may not be edible, but maybe your artificial case will deceive your family and friends.
Believe it or not, there is also a Gameboy IPhone Case for the iPhone 4s. It mimics the original GameBoy video game console (with the joystick and buttons to match). This is a retro iPhone cover for individuals who want to return to “the good ‘ole days.” When I was a kid, the Gameboy was the best video game console around. Although video game consoles have become more 3D and user interactive these days (XBox Kinect, for example), the Gameboy is a reminder of just how far video game consoles have come.
To add to these crazy iPhone cases, you can also get a Saltine Cracker IPhone Case and a Credit Card IPhone Case. Similar to the artificial chocolate case, the saltine case will deceive people from a distance into thinking that the case is actually food. According to Mashable (regarding the iPhone covered by the Saltine Cracker case), “This phone also smells like Saltine crackers. No joke. We tested it.”
As always, you have a manifold array of cases from which to dress your iPhone 4s. The question remains: Which will you choose? Which iPhone case most reflects your personality?
