We've seen some cool iPhone 6 cases inspired by 1980s sci-fi blockbusters. Batman. Back to the Future. But I'm still waiting on the one I really want...
I nearly lost my mind when I saw the Batman iPhone 6 cell phone cover. It's the coolest thing I've seen that's absolutely useless but that I want anyway. It lights up, it projects the Batsignal onto a wall.
What's more, the same Japanese outfit (Bandai's Crazy Case brand) has built a replica of the DeLorean sports coupe featured in the classic 80s comedy sci-fi blockbuster Back to the Future II. Just like the Batmobile, there are parts that light up. It even has a little Mr. Fusion reactor on it, and hover-wheels! How cool is that?
I guess it's fitting this is available, given than 2015 is the year Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future II.
There's a movie closer to my heart that I'd like to see get the iPhone 6 treatment: Blade Runner.
Ever since I saw that movie, I've been in love with the vehicle known as the "Spinner:" the police craft capable of vertical takeoff and landing piloted by Gaff, the plainclothes detective played by Edward James Olmos.
The Spinner is the work of futurist Syd Mead, whose work on movies like Star Trek, Aliens and Tron set the tone for science fiction visuals through much of the 1980s.
I'm desperately hoping that Crazy Case is working on the Spinner next, and won't wait until 2019 (the year that Blade Runner is set in) to release it. Mad Max's Pursuit Special would be a close second!
How about you? What are your some of your favorite sci-fi vehicles that you'd like to see get the iPhone case treatment?
