Japanese company Simplism showed off a few new cases at the 2013 CES, including a self-healing case and a case with three-dimensional textures.


Simplism’s FlashRevive Cover Set ($20) is a case that “self-heals” from scratches. It’s been announced for the iPhone 5 and iPod touch.

The Jigen ($35) series of cases feature a number of three-dimensional designs. Though the cases are all polycarbonate, the textures mimic the feel of other materials, such as leather. Exclusively made in Japan, Simplism claims Jigen’s manufacturing process is very hard to replicate.
