Show Report: Ezio

  • January 15, 2013
  • 2013 International CES

Interesting but a bit perplexing in that its products were expressly declaimed as non-final designs without prices, Ezio used its 2013 CES booth to show off its concepts for a Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Jewelry Collection —necklaces and wristbands with jewelry-like implementations. The pitch: one of these can be worn on your body, providing alerts for a wirelessly-connected iPhone’s incoming calls, messages, and anti-theft purposes. Ezio also mentioned Icestud, a “plug-in earphone jewel” to add a Swarovski crystal-topped peg to the headphone port of an iPhone.

Show Report: Huckleberry

  • 2013 International CES

Huckleberry came to the 2013 CES with a new collection of iPhone cases that immediately caught our attention. The good news: the lineup of DC and Marvel Comics Chara-Covers ($35 each) includes some of the best-looking 3-D molded cases we’ve seen, featuring multiple colors, cute cartoony versions of classic characters, and reasonable iPhone protection. Bad news: they’re only for the iPhone 4/4S, not the iPhone 5—at least for now. Some of the cases are apparently planned for availability in January, others for April.

Show Report: Canopy

  • January 11, 2013
  • 2013 International CES

Previously featured in a successful Kickstarter campaign, the Sensus case was the star attraction at Canopy’s 2013 CES booth. Wrapping around the body of an iPhone 4/4S—the iPhone 5 version’s still in prototype form—Sensus adds ten point touch sensitivity to the back and side of the iPhone, enabling you to control certain apps and games without obscuring the screen. Demonstrations of the technology included a simple shooter, which let you move your auto-firing spaceship around with rear controls while toggling weapons with the side control bar, and a web browser that lets you scroll with the side bar rather than touching the screen. Pricing could be as low as $59 or as high as $99 for Sensus; the price at Apple Stores would likely be artificially higher. A mid-2013 launch, around or after the Game Developers’ Conference, appears to be in the cards.

Having already developed the best integrated stand for iPad and iPhone cases, Zerochroma used the 2013 CES to show off iterations on the theme: a new folio-style iPad case with the stand built in, clear-backed, colored-edge versions of VarioProtect for iPhone 5, and separate versions of the stand that can be attached to full-sized iPads and new iPod touches. A much-anticipated iPad mini version of VarioProtect is said to be months away.
