Lunecase, now seeking funding on Kickstarter, uses electromagnetic energy generated by the iPhone to light up notification icons on the back of the case.
The Lunecase is the first intelligent iPhone cover. The case knows and identifies when you receive a 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 would be an incoming call, or a text message. The case displays these notifications on the back of your smartphone 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.
“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.”
Early bird pledgers can get the Lunecase for $35. It's expected that the case will ship in August. The project has a funding goal of $50,000. So far over $126,000 has been pledged with 20 days to go.
