EDIT: Now on sale http://shpws.me/3Qgt
This an iPhone 4/4s case, it has the back 'ripped' off exposing the clockwork workings of the iPhone also with Personalized engraving. At the moment the cogs don't move, would it appeal more if they actually moved??
Feedback greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance

Thanks,
At the moment the thickness of the back at the thickest point is 1.8mm, in theory, if i detach the cogs slightly and put a simple pin in the centre they should rotate although I'm no sure how smoothly as it will be in contact with the back of the iPhone, the user would also need to place the cogs in the holes before installing onto the iPhone.
Thanks for the feedback.
P.s i like your designs- especially the detail on the skull

If i tested and printed this design and uploaded pics of it, does anyone in your opinion reckon i would be able to sell any? ($35 ex VAT) If so i will go ahead with ordering one.

I'd cut some more material out, I know some people that really sell a lot of their cases.

I've got it down to $30 ex VAT incl markup (not much markup). Too much still?
