iPhone Flash Case Seeks Cloud Funding

Updated on

Remember that Nokia commercial not too long ago where they made fun of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone for turning people into zombies when it took photos at night? Now there is apparently a fix for that—if the fix raises enough funds through Kickstarter.

Lightstrap wants to solve your iPhone problems

This week a new project called Lightstrap started collecting funds for a device which should hopefully help you keep from turning people into zombies when snapping their photo in low light. The makers of Lightstrap claim it will make iPhone photos 10 times brighter than they really are.

The device is basically a case for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone which has a camera light wrapped around the edges. This offers a light right which flashes whenever the iPhone users snaps a photo using the flash. The makers say it works with any camera app for the iPhone and that it can be used for videos too.

Lightstrap runs on a battery, and supposedly users can take over 500 pictures or shot 30 minutes of video footage on a full charge. It also has more control options than the basic iPhone flash which is included on the phone. It allows the user to adjust the colors and also the level of bright ness.

Will Lightstrap make the cut?

The makers of the device have until Jan. 3 to raise $245,000. At this point they have nearly $27,000. To get one of these cases, users just pledge $87 towards the project. Then they will get a Lightstrap case for the iPhone 5S or 5 if the group is able to raise the full amount.

There’s no doubt that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) still has room to grow in the camera department. It’s interesting that these probable Apple fans like their iPhone so much that they felt they could add a flash to it to make the camera better.

Anyone ever thought of just buying a phone with a better camera instead?
