Kickstarter has given us many new and innovative projects in the past and it seems that the future is bright for such innovators. Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter has many such interesting projects, and the new Lunecase is also worth taking a look at.
iPhone’s Lunecase: Different notification display
Lunecase is a new iPhone case that harnesses the power of electromagnetic energy to display notifications for calls and messages. Once the case is properly fitted on the iPhone, it will detect such incoming calls and text messages by recognizing their respective wavelengths. It doesn’t have a battery of its own, nor it connects to iPhone via Lightning port. Simply snap the cover and it will start working on its own.
First intelligent iPhone cover
Lunecase is claimed as the “first intelligent iPhone cover” by the company. The case knows when you receive a call or message even before it is displayed on your iPhone’s screen. The notifications are displayed on the back of your iPhone with the help of LEDs, “using the free energy that is emitted by the device, converting it from the natural iPhone’s electromagnetic energy into a usable energy to power the notification system embedded in the Lunecase.”
Of course, since this is a case, it will protect your smartphone from light damage as it’s made from durable material. The Lunecase has currently raised $18,869, and it has a goal of $50,000 to start production. Interested buyers can pledge anything from $5 – $3000. If you shell out $29, you’ll get the Black Lunecase Earliest Bird Edition for your iPhone 5, 5S or 5C. If the case is successfully funded, then shipping will start from August 2014.
The Lunecase is expected to retail for around $50 once it hits stores, but if this seems exciting to you, then head over to its Kickstarter page to get this at a discounted price.
