The Apple iPhone 4 is a marvel with its sculpted hardware and standard-setting design. When it comes to protecting it, most other cases cover up and hide the very essence of the device.
Inspired by the design of elegant timepieces, we set out to create a collection of cases that is thoughtfully designed and engineered to complement Apple’s impeccable design, not cover it up. About the same dimensions as a typical bumper case, each Alloy Series DNA Case is engineered and crafted with a lightweight frame that is formed from a solid piece of aluminum, secured by rugged stainless steel fittings, and includes an integrated rubber bumper for added shock absorption.
While other metal cases retail at or near $100, we have worked hard to design and manufacture a high-quality metal case at a reasonable price.
DNA Case Alloy models (hard anodized black, powder coated white, or hard anodized aluminum) retail for only $50 and we will reward Kickstarter backers with an opportunity to "pre-order" cases at a discount prior to the August 2011 product launch, making them among the first to get their own DNA Case.
We truly appreciate your support and hope that you share our enthusiasm for the project. If so, please spread the word. Any donation -- however small -- is appreciated. Most importantly, we look forward to rewarding you with the culmination of our hard work!
Keep in Touch/Spread the Word
I WANT MY OWN DNA CASE!! Now that the Kickstarter funding period is over, where can one order more DNA Cases?
USPS Priority Mail shipping to US addresses is included in every pledge amount!!!
For up to two cases, please add US$10 to your pledge for shipping to Canada and US$15 to your pledge for all other international addresses.
Short answer: No.
Long answer: We are hopeful that this project and iPhone 4 case product line become a resounding success so that we can expand our offerings to other devices, including previous generation iPhones, iPod Touch, and maybe even the iPad!
In the meantime, we invite you to fully explore the DNA Case project, and if you don't have an iPhone 4 but know someone that does, this would make a great gift!
Of course, pledges of any amount are appreciated! ;-)
At the end of the pledge period (sometime after August 10), each backer will be sent a survey in which they will specify which model(s) DNA Case they want.
