iPhone cases do many things. They protect. They improve grip. They even say something about the owner. But the Lunecase—a new product on Kickstarter—may be the first to let you know you’ve got a call coming in even before your phone is ready to tell you.
Concepter has created Lune technology—which harnesses the small amount of electromagnetic energy that emanates from the iPhone—to power the Lunecase. An “intelligent iPhone case” that doesn’t need for batteries or a direct connection to the iPhone, Lunecase is able to recognize and identify when users receive an SMS message or a phone call before it is even displayed on the iPhone’s screen.
The Lunecase will identify the type of notification, whether it’s an incoming call or a text message, and displays a visual notification on the back of the phone with the help of LEDs powered by the free energy that is emitted by the device.
“Accessories made for the iPhone can sometimes take the beauty and easy functionality away from the phone,” said Concepter founder Vlad Tislenko. “Lunecase brings the back of your phone to life and enhances the natural iPhone functionality with no batteries, no cords and no bulk.”
Lunecase was created to not only be smart, but also to be protective and sleek. The case is made out of durable materials that will protect the phone. The case is thin and contours the curves of the iPhone to perfection.
Do you need to know a call or text is coming in seconds before your screen tells you the same? Not always, but I can think of some situations where it would be handy. So has Conceptor, as portrayed in the video below.
That, and it just looks pretty cool.
Conceptor is seeking $50,000 in funding by June 5th, 2014. Pledge levels begin at $5, with the good stuff coming at $35, now that the $30 level is sold out. For that price, you get a Lunecase for iPhone 5/5s/5c, which will be $50 upon release. If you’re looking to spend some time in Kiev, $3,000 will get you a three night stay in a four hotel and a chance to visit the Conceptor office to kick around some ideas. Estimated delivery of the Lunecase is August, 2014.
