Gaming with real buttons is just a whole lot more fun. For the iPhone 4/4s, 5 and iPod Touch (4th and 5th generation).
This project's funding goal was not reached on January 12, 2013.

Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
Keep looking for those investors and this will happen. Why buy just a case when you could have a case with a real function and fun! This is going to happen :)
think these folks and the milkshake folks with coco controller need to team up.
Do they produce it anyway?!hope do cuz it was a great idea
looks like this wont fund :( really wanted this for my itouch but oh well
This really doesn't look like it's going to fund. Absolute shame too because this could change the game big time. No pun intended. Even if the remaining 611 go in time.. still nowhere near the goal! :((
Of this doesn't get funded is there going to be an alternative?
i still think that this would have more backers if it had atleast 2 shoulder buttons. with shoulder buttons you could use it with fps or 3rd person shooters. without them the devise seems limited gaming wise. its a real shame that this probably wont reach its goal hopefully they atleast get the patent. i wonder if they can find a different way of funding this or something.
Thank you for your continued support. Here are some responses to a few comments:
- Multiple Quantities: Unfortunately, Kickstarter no longer allows for orders of multiple quantities.
- Games: Please see our latest update for a sample of games that work great with the WynCASE. There are many to list so we are currently showing the better-known games. We are continuing to work with developers to add more to the list.
As we continue through the second half of the campaign, please share and post the project so that we can get this awesome case onto your device. Thank you again!

I'm starting to lose faith :(
50% of the way done, and less than 20% backed. Oh well. This seemed like such a neat idea at the time. Still does. The creators really should've included a higher price option for bulk orders for those wanting to sell these cases. That probably would've gotten this project to $80,000.
It gonna happen or not?
They're gone. And they won't meet their goal because 1) going from a $45 pledge to a $1,999 pledge leaves way too much middle room - as I said back on December 11. And 2) the device only supports some games.
Oh well. Interesting Idea - poor Kickstarter implementation and communication
where have you guys disappeared? You have such a great start and then didn't bring out any new updates and answer your backers questions. Now you only have 3 weeks to raise pledges to hit your goal.
You need a press Blitz ASAP!!! super cool project. I hope you guys pull it.
Looks like a worthy project, glad to be a part of it!
This is looking incredible! Really hope this goes through, really excited!
Great case and concept!
How many vertical pixels will be obstructed on each side by the case and hidden BridgeTOUCH connectors? Will the end-user still be able to pull down iOS notifications or instantly scroll to the top with the case facing front?
Have you finalized the size of the available screen, or will you keep trying to maximize the screen and minimize the touch points? As a developer, what is the minimum pixel dimensions for the connectors to be reliably acknowledged?
First, thank you all for your support! We are excited that you are excited and are looking forward to seeing the backer list continue to grow. Many of the questions that have been asked here are answered in our FAQ section at the bottom of the project page. @Chris Ross, we will look into the best method for ordering multiples. We will update the FAQ and let you know once we get a final word on that.
Thank you all again, talk soon!

Thanks Charles. Can't wait till full funding (which at this rate shouldn't be a problem)
It would be nice to know which games are currently supported. I know this list will grow, but at this early stage you guys should have some idea of the games that will work initially on this.
@ Jonathan - I wondered the same exact thing after my first Kickstarter pledge. If the project get's funded, we'll get a survey in our email asking us exactly what we would like, given the options available for the tier selected.
@Charles As an iPhone GTA lover myself, I will probably just flip the case behind the iPhone for games like GTA (unless the developers update the GTA game for this case which would be great). It's obvious no one case can work for every single game, as games just use the touchscreen so differently (think of UNO, or Phase 10 for example).
But then there are games like Bonkheads, Real Racing, Angry Birds, Sonic, and others where this case will make my iPhone better.
One thing though. When I made my pledge, it didn't give me an option to pick which colors I wanted. This is my first Kickstarter project, is this normal, or do I need to contact wynlabs?
I just made my Special Edition WynCase pledge! A Kickstarter Green case with black buttons on a black iPhone 4s should look mighty sexy!
However - two probelms...
#1 - The case clearly covers some of both sides of the screen. That presents an issue for games like GTA, which utilizes the deepest corners for the HUD.
#2 - I have doubts about this project reching it's goal of $80,000 simply because there aren't enough pledge options. You go from a $45 pledge to a $1,999 one? I think that presents too vast a disparity, no?
@Chris Ross, of all the projects that I have backed, this is the only method to use in order to get more than 1 unit. But it will be up to WynCASE to accept it or not.
Love the idea! Can't wait.
One quick question... I would like to get 2. I selected the $30 pledge, but issued a $60 backing. Will this work?
First $45 pledge backer. Can't wait for the all black case with black buttons!!
