Aids in iPhone photography
Quirky has announced a new addition to its line of iPhone 3G and 3GS accessories, the Beamer. The case features a hard plastic outer shell, and a two-piece design, requiring owners to remove the base before inserting an iPhone. Giving the case its name is an LED light, which can be used either as camera flash or a standalone light. A button triggers three different functions: 10-second lighting, constant light, or simply shutting off.
The light is powered by its own coin battery, which can provide up to 10 hours of illumination before needing replacement. Controls are buried within a groove, preventing accidental power drain when the case is kept in a pocket or bag. The Beamer is available in a variety of different colors, and can currently be pre-ordered from Quirky for $32.
