Retro Touch-Thru© (T2) case by ivyskin is the first of its kind to provide a hard screen shell over the iPod Touch. This German designed material is second to none on the market today! Enables you to navigate the iPod’s screen with the hard scratch resistant shield. ivyskin has designed and manufactured the all new T2 case© from scratch by using the latest technology available in crystal case manufacturing. Another breakthrough from a company that always thinks outside the box. Surface Xylo Wave (SXW)© technology passes ultrasonic waves that pass over the touch screen panel and transfer them to the iPod’s screen without any interferences. When the panel is touched, a portion of the wave is absorbed. This change in the ultrasonic waves registers the position of the touch event and sends this information to the iPod’s screen for processing.


Super Slim Retro T2 is a perfectly clear suit of armor for your iPod Touch. The super slim impact-resistant case offers form-fitted durable protection against scratches and dust, while allowing full access to all controls and best of all a touch-thru screen.
Touch-Thru Design The touch screen panel is coated with a special patent pending material that conducts a continuous electrical current across the the shield.The human body is also an electrical device which has stored electrons and therefore also exhibits capacitance. It is an extremely durable screen that is suited for use in industrial control systems and other harsh environments. This rugged screen type is not affected by most surface contaminants, scratches, or vibration. Responds to finger or gloved hand. However, not all touch screens are the same, and only ivyskin Retro T2 are build with German materials.
True Polycarbonate Design Sleek and crystal clear qualities of a traditional polycarbonate case with the addition of an ultra-thin hard screen cover that stays on the case to protect the iPhone’s screen from every angle. The Xylo T2 delivers on its promise to protect your iPhone. Made with polycarbonate crystal material, it is second to none on the market today. We are proud to be an all American company with intensive requirements to make every product that we manufacturer superior, to the standard of what a US designed product should be.
