The ’90s were a mixed bag, aesthetically and technologically – but in our era of anorexic, minimalist gadget design, the heft of old mobile phones is kind of charming. Kinda. If you’re feeling nostalgic, slip your iPhone into the ARKHIPPO.
The ARKHIPPO case won’t give you the satisfying snap of a StarTAC or the graceful sliding-up of an antenna, but the heft is there – and in seven different colours. And, as their demo video shows, if you drop the thing onto concrete, it’ll bounce – sure beats shattering. Just don’t expect to stick it into your skinny jeans& – that’d ruin the ’90s throwback anyway. [ARK via DVICE]
