A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
Get ready for our latest, most advanced case ever to walk this earth.
SPECTRE is our new light up case for iPhone, with the next generation lighting technology. It allows you to be on top of your notifications with unique, lighting design, providing the possibilities to personalize your device according to your personality. Please, meet SPECTRE.
Our Spectre line-up is available for the following iPhone models: iPhone 5/5S/SE/6/6S/7 and iPhone 6/6S/7 Plus. You can pre order SPECTRE now saving 50% its retail price.
Our result: a new range of case designs that we’ve developed in partnership with industry giants Jean Baptiste and Jama Jurabaev.
Introducing designs of Andrew Bond.
Put YOUR own INITIALS on your case. Get, literally, the most unique case in the world!
All business and no frills. No messing around here. Simply put, what you see is what you get.
Fierce, motivated and powerful. The dragon inspired this SPECTRE to breathe its fiery glow. Open up your imagination and attach a piece of the mysterious to your everyday life.
Delicate, feminine and the embodiment of class. The organic nature of this case pays tribute to the natural beauty found on Earth, accented against the force that brings life to all: light. This SPECTRE will awaken your senses.
Majestic, graceful and downright beautiful. Butterfly motifs dominate this design and are accented by the central feature of SPECTRE: light. Think reality with a dash of magic! Sincere sensuality is expressed through floral prints on the backs of butterfly wings. This combination creates a luminous touch and with raised metallic threads that contrast against stripes, triangles and geometric shapes, this SPECTRE gracefully flutters to life.
Six sides of simplicity and genius. The high-tech world is chalk full of clean lines and perfectly crafted shapes, much like this Hexagon SPECTRE. Whether you’re in the tech industry or you’re someone who appreciates its beauty, this SPECTRE is for you.
Noticeably unnoticeable. When you want to turn heads but don’t want anyone to see your phone. This SPECTRE is inspired by the rugged armour that protects servicemen and women around the world. Get tough and get camouflaged.
Meet designs of Jean Baptiste PetricoulI.
If you want to see what living and working in over a dozen different countries does to an artist’s influence, look no further than the designs of Jean Baptiste PetricoulI. This up and comer has some significant impact already under his belt and what you see is just the tip of the iceberg.
This tropical treat is a super-sweet way to give your iPhone the Hawaiian experience. The classic pineapple is given a fresh look with contemporary lines and SPECTRE’s glow will have anyone and everyone nearby yearning for the tropics.
Not everyone looks good in a pair of leather pants, but just about every iPhone looks better in a Prince SPECTRE. This SPECTRE pays homage to the great musician with a subdued yet stately design. Rock ‘n roll.
Pop icon. Musical genius. The great, David Bowie. The signature Bowie shock of hair and strike of lightning will surge new life into your iPhone and is perfect for any lover of music.
This SPECTRE is not your father but it is really cool nevertheless. Here, the Dark Side meets the light and when you attach SPECTRE to your iPhone, you’ll instantly know that the force is strong in this one.
Jama took a break from the grind in London where he’s been working the movie and game industry to create this exclusive design.

Fab features and changes you can expect:
Rock-solid construction: SPECTRE is made for people that value protection.
Materials: our unique blend of PC + TPU ingredients makes SPECTRE incredibly protective.
TPU(Thermoplastic Polyurethane). TPU material provides rock solid protection for the edges of the iPhone and make it simple to apply and remove the case.
PC(Polycarbonate). The combination of brightness and a new materials blend gave us the possibility to display an image on the back of the case, and also make the image more vibrant. Having examined more than 50 combinations of materials, we came up with the best solution.
Screen protection: SPECTRE keeps your screen safe.
The new construction keeps safe your screen from surface scratches when your iPhone is lying face down.
Much thinner: At only 2.7mm, you’ll hardly notice that SPECTRE is attached to your iPhone.
More vibrant illumination.
We increased the brightness of the lighting element by 40%.
Increased duration illumination takes place.
The lighting element glows 5 times when you get a call and 3 times when you get a message.
The SPECTRE is connected to your iPhone via Low Energy 4.0 Bluetooth – the Bluetooth itself will nibble away approximately 5% of the iPhone’s battery.
Case controlling. You don't need to use any additional software. All of our cases are compatible with your phone's built-in settings. You will have the option to choose the applications (apps) in the Apple Notification Center which control the case.
Our case has a powerful built-in power supply with a 2-year lifespan so there is no need to charge it or replace the battery.
Where we're at.
We’ve been working on smart cases for over 3 years now. The Spectre that you see in the video and prototype gallery is a real, working prototype. With your support, we can bring Spectre worldwide.
Your contribution will help fund:
- Production tooling
- Large components order
- Broaden Spectre’s line-up
SPECTRE is ready for mass production. Our product consists of two main components: hardware and software and both are fully developed and ready to go. We are ready for mass production. We've performed all of the required tests and selected the materials and manufacturer. All of the technical data is ready as well. We have developed necessary connections with the industry's best logistics company. We have calculated the initial shipping dates. Right now, all we need to do is to manufacture the injection molds and start the mass production. Our previous project gave us the needed experience to bring this project to life. We are planning on shipping our first production run in January, 2017.
How do I get Spectre case?
To pre-order any of our cases, click the button below and pick the reward you like. Simple as that. If you pre-ordered a case and then decided to get one more case, go back to the very top of the project, there you’ll find a “MANAGE” button that will allow you to change your pledge. Once you have pledged, sit back and relax. We'll collect your shipping/fulfillment info when this project is complete(If you pledged for more than 1 cases, please note that you'll be able to make the selection as soon as the project has ended).
Anyone that has ever tried to create something new will know that the road isn’t always easy. Successes, setbacks and everything in between. We have overcome hurdle after hurdle because of one thing. Your support. This is the part where we take out the Kleenex and get a little teary-eyed. We have come so far and we are now at the final hurdle. We can see the finish line but need a little boost to get all the way there. Kickstarter family, you have put your trust in us before, and we created a great iPhone case. Let’s work together and make history, again. See you at the finish line!
Risks and challenges
This isn’t our first kick at the can nor is it our first Kickstarter project. We like to think of ourselves as veterans, coming in to an arena where we feel very comfortable. We’ve learned a few lessons from our first time around the block which have made us stronger, more confident and capable.
We’ve been taking bids from manufacturers for months on our SPECTRE case and have now come to an agreement with one of the industry’s leaders in case manufacturing. Reliable, professional and experienced were qualities we were looking for and those are exactly what we’ve found. Our manufacture has capacity to produce up to 500,000 cases per month, meeting our demand expectations. In layman’s terms, there won’t be any delays in receiving your SPECTRE.
To power SPECTRE, we are using the world’s most famous battery: Energizer.
For SPECTRE’s microchip, we turned to Texas Instruments to deliver the goods.
We like to think of ourselves as humble, but we also want to be straight shooters. This is our best iPhone case ever. We guarantee each and every part of this case will work, function and last. We are so confident in SPECTRE that we are standing behind it with a one-year limited warranty. So, there you have it. We think our case is pretty great.
With this pledge you can get the most exclusive cases designed specifically for Kickstarter backers. The idea is this: you get 4 cases at a special price. You will be able to choose the first case from the cases available when we send you the survey and the other 3 will be shipped to your door, one case every 3 months. The designs of these 3 cases will be a little surprise and you won’t know what you are going to get until you open the box. This offer is available just for a limited time and it’s for those who love individuality and for those who love to stand out from the crowd.
Valid for iPhone 5/5S/SE, 6/6S/7 and iPhone 6/6S/7 PLUS.
