Carbon-fiber iPhone case
Belch Co. has released its first case for the iPhone, what is also its first product for the modern generation of Apple products. The case is said to be the only one for the iPhone made out of aerospace-grade carbon fiber, giving it extra strength, while keeping its weight down to less than a third of an ounce. The inside is lined with neoprene, which prevents scraping and also acts as shock cushion.
The case is handmade to fit 4, 8 and 16GB phones, and offers access to buttons, the touchscreen, the Dock Connector and headphone jack, and finally the camera. Belch is selling its iPhone case for $80; a case for the MacBook Air is said to be coming soon.
