Wow... been a while since I had something to show around here! But finally, news.

Left my vintage Nokia flip-phone (if you don't know what those were, don't worry, it's not important) on a train, so I finally had the right excuse to get an iPhone. A gorgeous object, of course, so I wasn't too happy with all the cases that make you forget you even have an iPhone 4. From there, I set out to design a case that would add the minimum bulk, weight and complexity to the phone, while providing some crucial protection to its most vulnerable parts.

Anyway, 4-4 is here; have a look and tell me what you think. I think it may be the smallest/lightest iPhone 4 case around, but, uhm, not sure how to check that Smile
Fits Verizon and GSM versions of iPhone.

Cheers, Michiel

Hey Michiel,

another great design, it was well worth the wait!
I coudn't agree more with you about all the bulky cases that hide the beauty of the phone. It has kept me from buying a case for long, but this one is so nice that I ordered one right away.

Good luck with the sales, I suspect this is going to be a best seller!

Hi Michiel,

I ordered one too. Curious to see how it turns out!

I use your padfoot quite often and bring it with me on every trip.

Hey robert, great to hear - on both counts! Do let me know how you like the case.

I might have some news on padfoot too, one of these days...

Hey Michiel,

just received the (red) case (that's the quickest delivery I've ever had, 4 working days counting from last thursday evening !)

I've just put it around my wife's phone, she will test drive it Smile
I will let you know how it performs in about a week or so.

One thing I can already mention, but this is more a production/shapeways limitation: would have been nice if the case had been printed flat. Right now it is printed on one of the long sides, and this side is now a lot rougher than the other long side. In fact on this side the layers are very obvious, while the opposite side is completely smooth.

(This would be a great design in rubber coated steel)

That is quick. I think it even arrived before I saw the message that it was sent.

Thanks for the feedback, and would love to hear your wife's opinion too. If it's too horrible e-mail me direct Smile

You're right about the printing direction, 'd be great if one day we could control that. Although I tell myself I actually like some of the printing lines...
