A new project on Indiegogo, Safeskin, is looking to address one of the main limitations with Find My iPhone with a case that locks onto an iPhone and prevents it from being turned off. While it’s not clear exactly how Safeskin works to keep an iPhone powered on, it appears that it connects to the iPhone Lighting port, suggesting an electronic solution rather than something that simply interferes with the physical controls. The package will also include an Eye proximity sensor that pairs with the case to alert you when your iPhone gets out of range. No additional details on the product are yet available, although users who are interested can sign up on the Indiegogo product page to be kept up to date on further developments.
