iPhone owners all have to deal with the necessity of protecting their phones, and there are hundreds of cases on the market to help them do so. These cases range from cheap rubber or plastic bumpers to slick, expensive leather shields, but with each case comes either slightly decreased functionality or annoyance, with many cases either morphing the iPhone’s elegant look into something bulky and unattractive, or simply failing to offer adequate protection.
Enter the Chrono Case, a new product being developed by Mike Chan, an industrial designer who enjoys “crossing premium car and motorcycle styling into everyday products.”Designed to be the ultimate end-all-be-all of iPhone cases, the Chrono Case certainly looks the part, with sleek aluminum plating that protects the iPhone without sacrificing a simple design. The phone also includes an elastic strap in its backplate, designed to be moved up and down for item storage and easily adjustable to any hand position for more convenient texting and phone maneuvering. Finally, the Chrono Case features diagonal-moving sliders that allow for multi-tasking without dropping the phone, a port plug designed to block the iPhone’s port space from accumulating dust, and side grips similar to those on a console gamepad.
With all of these impressive features, the Chono Case looks to be the ideal purchase for an iPhone user looking for something better than cheap rubber bumpers and awkward plastic coverings. However, it still isn’t a completed product, and Mike Chan and his team are currently advertising the case through an indiegogo fundraising campaign. In order for the case to actually be put into the final stages of production and distribution, which will hopefully be in August, 10,000 dollars have to be raised before mid-July. Those who donate to the cause are all eligible to receive benefits, ranging from posters to a customized set of cases in different color combinations, so those interested in a new, better form of iPhone protection should offer up a donation and check out the Chrono Case posthaste.
