Blujoos handcrafted Antique Steampunk Case for iPhone review

The Antique model Steampunk Case for iPhone is one of a few handcrafted iPhone cases by Paul Marsh's Blujoos. Each model is a special edition, limited to 50 pieces, and designed to give your iPhone a unique look you just won't find anywhere else. A model and prop maker from the film industry with over 20 years and 25 films and TV series to his credit, Marsh is pouring every bit of that skill into these cases and it really shows. These aren't stickers -- these are actual 3D castings!

The models are built using carefully chosen parts from watches and clocks, and then a platinum silicone mould is created from the model. Marsh casts the individual cases from a tough, UV protected polyurethane and then -- get this -- impregnates them with metal powders. That's real brass, real bronze, real copper, and real iron powders. That's what gives them the incredible look of rusted, corroded metals. It's beautiful destruction and The effect is simply stunning. It looks like something out of fantasy, like the kingdoms busily assembling themselves during the opening credits of Game of Thrones...

There are currently two models available on Etsy, the Antique which I'm reviewing here, and the Salvage which has a more coppery, almost Lost City of Atlantis look to it.

Both are gorgeous and both are extremely limited, so if you like them, pounce on them soon.

The good

  • Exquisite craftsmanship
  • Incredible finish
  • Unique look and feel

The bad

  • iPhone can shift slightly in case
  • Bulkier than a mass-produced skin

The bottom line

I absolutely adore the look of and feel of the Antique Steampunk iPhone case by Blujoos. Paul Marsh has put together something more than an accessory -- he's put together a real work of art. If you're a fan of the Steampunk genre, or of fantasy or sci-fi model-making techniques, or simply of unique craftsmanship and amazing design, check out Marsh's work on Etsy now.

Elegantly charge your iPhone and iPad with the Converge USB charging hub

The Converge USB charging hub from Think Geek is a fun, futon-inspired stand for your iPhone, iPod tour or iPad. Working on an Apple mobile blog like iMore means you start to amass a lot of Apple mobile devices and even if I'm only using an iPhone and an iPad every day, keeping them both charged in an easy, elegant way has proven to be more of a challenge than I originally imagined. Converge looks like a great way to do just that.

The Glam Sparkle case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S is just the latest in a long line of beautiful, shiny cases from Case-Mate. They sent this back from CES 2012 for me to look at and what can I say, they know my weakness and they exploit it well!

SGP Kuel H10 stylus pen review (or: How I win at Draw Something)

SGP Kuel H10 is a compact, convenient, capacitive stylus for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. It's made from a special silicon with high polymer abrasion-resistant coating, which SGP says allows for smooth touch and incredible control. In my experience it's the multitouch sensors in iOS devices themselves that are the limiting factor when it comes to any stylus, but SGP has certainly made a pen to be proud of.

Futulele turns your iPad or iPhone into a ukelele

Review + giveaway: iCooly PhoneStand for iPhone

"Pairing the latest in Apple iPhone hardware with a 1980s style telephone handset, iCooly certainly demands attention even if its form sometimes overwhelms its function."

The iCooly PhoneStand is an iPhone dock/cradle with a twist -- a retro-future look like something out of the 1980s... or a 60s world's fair. Instead of a rotary dialer or touchtone keypad, it has a tacky surface on which you can place your iPhone, and the handset plugs right into your 3.5mm audio jack. And that's only the beginning.

Chris Vitek's most used iPhone and iPad accessories of 2011

I generally don’t accessorize my iPhone or iPad too much – I usually find one option that works, and stick with it for the long haul (or at least until I upgrade the device). What I get usually focuses on the essentials – protections, storage, charging, etc. So here is the list of accessories from 2011:

Georgia's most used iPhone and iPad accessories of 2011

I'm fortunate in that I get to try out and review a lot of iPhone and iPad accessories every year, but at the same time that makes it hard to pick just a few out as my favorites. I love a really wide variety of gear -- from super shiny cases to really convenient docks, to strange, beautiful, almost unclassifiable experiments and innovations. Still, the job before me is to reveal my most used iPhone and iPad accessories, and do it I shall!
