Last month, I had the pleasure of visiting the OtterBox headquarters in Fort Collins, CO and talk with Jordan about the history of the OtterBox name, the design and testing process, and get a closer look and description for each case series for the iPhone and iPad.
In addition to the interview, Jordan also passed on one of each case series to give away to our readers! Specifically, we have the following:
Like Chris Oldroyd, my most used iPhone and iPad accessories consists of a very short list. There are only have a few that I regularly used during the past year. Most of what I used was for device protection and power supply, with the exception of one accessory that enhanced my iPad experience for specific scenarios.
At CES 2012, we encountered the Invisible Keypad, an iPhone case that allows you to "feel" your keyboard. The screen protector part of the case has ridges strategically placed for the iPhone's portrait keyboard. These ridges are positioned above and outside each key so that you must tap between them versus on them. The creators went with this design to be less obstructive to your screen when the keyboard is not in use.
We only played with a prototype of the case. The final version promises to be slimmer and more polished and is scheduled to release in the first half of the year.
Mugtuck Monsters is an adorable iPhone app filled with 3 adorable little monsters that your children can interact with by touching their face and tickling them, poking them, and even rocking them to sleep. The app is cute in itself, but Mugtuck also offers a cuddly little iPhone case turning the monster into a stuffed animal.
We're here at CES 2012 talking to Belkin about iPhone cases. This time around they've aimed to differentiate cases for white and black iPhone users. Their new lines expected in April are focused specifically on the color differences. Certain cases will compliment the black variant while others will look better on white models.
Kogeto Dot brings panoramic video to the iPhone 4 & iPhone 4S. The Kogeto Dot is a small lens that attaches to the device with a small clip and makes use of their proprietary application to capture the video. Once the application is launched you can begin recording by pressing the volume up key on the device and after the recording begins you will need to lay the device flat in order to capture the proper video. After you are finished recording you end the recording in the application, it takes a second to pull it up and then you can preview the video you just captured.
After you have captured the video and previewed it you are able to share the video to your favorite social network or directly to their website. The interesting thing is that people who are viewing the movies from the web and other methods the 360 degree view is still available so they can enjoy all of what you captured.
We got a chance to see it at CES 2012 so check out the video!
