Co-developed with motorcycle apparel brand Alpinestars, Incipio's new Bionic ($35, aka Bionic Silicrylic) and Tech 10 ($25, aka Tech 10 DermaShot) cases for the iPhone 4 are differently textured and molded versions of earlier rubber and plastic designs. Bionic is the more sophisticated of the two cases, combining a hard plastic rear shell with a soft rubber inner base case, this time using interesting angles and a dot texture on the rear shell, creating a two-tone look and hard/soft contrast that would be hard for other manufacturers to match in manufacturing precision. The simpler Tech 10 is all rubber with dots, grips, and an Alpinestars logo molded into the back; it's primarily a single color with the option of a black ring around the iPhone 4's rear camera to avoid inaccurate exposure of photographs. Each case comes with a screen protector, cleaning cloth, and applicator card.
