Macworld | iWorld carries the usual collection of iPhone cases and accessories, not all of which are insanely great. But here are a few interesting ones that were on the show floor as I made my way through the masses.




Opena Case and Intoxicase were both showing off iPhone cases with built in bottle openers. Intoxicase's even integrates with an app that counts the number of openings. Not sure the demand for such a thing, but here they are.




WaveCradle is simple aluminum stand that amplifies the audio coming from your iPhone. The stand simple curves the audio towards the listener and they claim an 8 decibel increase. Cradles cost from $19.85 to $28.50.




Nomad Brush sells capacitive tipped paint brushes for use on your iPad. The iPad can't sense pressure, so the use of these special brushes is primarily for feel. Artists may be more accustomed to using a brush than their finger. Brushes cost from $18 to $39.




iLidiPhoneCase claims to be the thinnest iPhone wallet case. It's priced at $39.95 and is shipping in a few weeks. The floor model felt a bit plastic-y, however.

Seems like there's a never ending pile of accessories for iOS devices these days.

An iPhone bottle opener case. Wonder if beer spray trips the moisture sensors? :rolleyes:

The bottle opener case is kind of cheesy but kinds of cool. Generally most special bottle openers are that way.

The last case I could think would be useful if one wants to dump their wallet. It has been found in studies people will turn around to get their cell phone before they will for a wallet.

I was just gonna say the same thing! Not only will they have your phone, but your cash, your ID, your house key, credit cards, birth date and address. Sounds like a perfect recipe for identity theft :p

The wallet is a terrible idea

And I'll tell you why. People will put their credit cards in there. Hotel keys anyone? Anything with a magnetic stripe will be screwed by the phone's radiation. I learned that the hard way.

You must've had bad luck then.

I wonder how much Adam from Elwood enjoys his licence with full address details being prominently displayed on Macrumors without any obfuscation.

Hmmm.

In the police station:
"Officer, I want to report that I lost my wallet with my credit card, my ID, my money and my phone inside it..."

I have been carrying 4 credit cards and ID in a Piel Frama wallet with a magnetic
closure from the time of the original iPhone 1. I'm using the 4 now with the same case and never a problem.

WaveCradle has lost its mind. For $20-30, I can buy a decent set of speakers to plug into my iPhone for much better results. :rolleyes:
