iPhone Swiss Knife Case – ReadyCase Now on Indiegogo

Came across this awesome multi-purpose swiss knife iPhone case on Indiegogo, the ReadyCase.  The case itself comes with either a 8GB or 16GB USB drive, kickstand, lens ring, headphone clip and a multi-tool (blade, opener, screwdriver)….hmm… am I missing anything here? and the best part is the case is less than 3mm thick.  Check it out on Indiegogo, only 9 days left to pledge if you want one. Even better is there’s a iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 version. The ReadyCase Indiegogo Page here.

Spike Keyboard Protective Case for iPhone Now On Kickstarter

The guys at SoloMatrix actually put out three variations of the Spike.  The Spike1, Spike 2 and Spike 3.

Spike¹ is a combination keyboard and protective case that can be easily and securely installed in a matter of seconds. You can effortlessly rotate the bottom section of the case with the keyboard, to the back or the front of the iPhone, for storing in either typing or full-screen mode.  We’ve also hinged the keyboard, so you’ll always have quick access to the full-screen even when typing.

This model is priced in the same range as the majority of ordinary iPhone cases. This means that even for many users that don’t feel they need a keyboard, it is so affordable that it’s tough to pass up. And once they try it, they’ll soon realize the advantages of real tactile keys even though they feel they are proficient typing on the touchscreen.

Spike² is our premium version keyboard and case combination. It differs from Spike¹ in user convenience features and overall appearance. Its industrial-strength case not only protects your iPhone, but incorporates a unique and specially-designed asymmetrical 360 degree hinge. This hinge enables you to quickly toggle the keyboard on and off the screen for full-screen access while you are typing.  In addition, it also allows you to fold and stow the keyboard in a flush pocket in the rear of the case when you’ve finished typing and return to the full touchscreen to run all those apps that you will probably never use more than once or twice.  At a touch of your fingers, it can instantly be brought to the front to bang out a quick text message, email, or even type your first novel comfortably!  And to make sure you are always in style, it features a beautiful, brushed metal accent band around the perimeter of the case.

Our Limited Edition Spike³ is for those of you that appreciate the very best. Similar in design to Spike², but with an all-aluminum, antenna-neutral case including the TypeSmart keyboard that is easily stowed out of the way when not needed.  We are CNC machining these right here in the USA from aerospace grade aluminum and anodizing them in at least two great colors, Neutron Gray and KickStarter Green, we anticipate a couple more anodized colors to come. To make it truly personal for you or someone special, we’ll custom engrave up to 30 letters on the back of the case.

For more information on the different pledges and their production keydates, head over to their Kickstarter page here.

Record iPhone Video With Stereo Sounds on the Fostex AR-4i Audio Interface for iPhone 4/4S

Repost from PASM Workshop

Check out this hot little gadget, the Fostex AR-4i Audio Interface for iPhone 4/4S (US$119.99) which enables you to record video with stereo sound or use it as a recording device using external mics or line in. Initial reviews indicated that it works pretty well with iPhone 4 but not the iPhone 4S as users reported that some statics are picked up with the iPhone 4S. Hope they can come up with an updated app to solve the problem. You can get it from B&H now and the link is here.
