iPhone case with built-in light source

25 November 2009 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

quirky recently released the Beamer – a community developed iPhone case with a built-in light source. This light can function both as a flash for the iPhone’s camera as well as a light to brighten things up when necessary.

Beamer is a hard plastic, slim fitting case with a friction-fit, 2 piece design and a base that slides out for quick iPhone insertion. Pressing the integrated silicone button once switches the light on for 10 seconds – enough time to snap a picture. Pressing the button twice will leave the light on indefinitely until another button press turns it off. The Beamer comes equipped with a super bright LED and a replaceable coin cell battery that provides 10 hours of illumination. The case is available in a number of colours. quirky is a unique concept that uses its online community to design and develop products – something that should appeal to the inventor in all of us. Each week, quirky’s community collaborates to select and produce one new product idea. The site engages participants to collaborate in every aspect of product creation – from ‘ideation’, design, naming, manufacturing and marketing, right through to sales. Anyone can participate on quirky.com either by submitting their own product idea for $99 or by voting, rating and influencing other people’s product ideas. After product launch, 30 cents of every dollar generated from the sale of a quirky product goes back to these influencers. Products developed to date include a double-sided USB drive, a portable camera tripod and keychain, a mouse pad with a writing surface and a cord wrap for Apple’s MagSafe power adapter.
