pokeball case

This simple but brilliant DIY iPhone case design by Jon Cleaver helps you make consistent Poke Ball throws in Pokemon Go. Throw after throw will be dead straight, insuring that you catch all the Pokemon.

If you have access to a 3D printer and own an iPhone 6, you’ll be happy to know that the plans are free to download. Bonus points if you can alter the design to work with other phones. Bonus bonus points if you can integrate the feature with this awesome DIY Pokedex case.

pokeball charger

We thought that this phone-charging Pokédex Case was the ultimate Pokémon Go accessory, but this Poké Ball Charger makes a good case for itself. It’s 5300mAh, which isn’t horrible and it can be had for $40 on Etsy.

That is, until Nintendo shuts it down and wisely decides to make an official version.


I’m not the type of person to tell a person how they should feel about things, but if you’re addicted to Pokémon Go and you don’t want this Pokédex-shaped phone case with a built-in battery back-up then all of that fresh air must be making you crazy.

Blogger Nick poole debuted his Pokédex case on Sparkfun last week, giving a breakdown of how he made the case using a 3D printer, a lithium cell battery, and a micro-USB cable. It’s pretty snazzy, and you can download the files to print your own case from GitHub. You’ll have to assemble the battery component yourself.

If all that sounds too complicated, you should probably just be patient. A phone case like this makes too much damn sense for Nintendo to pass on making an official version at some point.

Admit it, your phone is boring. You can try to fool us with that Fallout 4 Pickman Gallery wallpaper, but it’s really quite dull.

Worry not, for artist Morgan Loebel makes these horrifying phone cases for iPhones and Android devices. Loebel fabricates realistic dental prosthesis for his cases, a skill which he honed over twenty years as a dental technician.

You can even purchase a case of your very own from Loebel’s Etsy page. Check out more examples of his fantastic, terrifying work below. [click to continue…]


You might remember the case that turns your iPhone into a real, working Game Boy that Hyperkin jokingly / seriously teased for April Fool’s Day last year. Well, Neowin made an interesting discovery at E3 expo in Los Angeles this week. They got a chance to see the thing working fo’ real on the show floor. [click to continue…]


Batman won’t take your phone calls, so there’s only one alternative.

This 3D printed lens designed by Dalpek can be placed over your phone’s flash, casting the Bat Signal instead of, y’know, providing general illumination. We’re assured that if the Dark Knight doesn’t show up within thirty minutes your vigilante justice is free.

You can print one out for free using the plans on Thingiverse, or you can buy one ready-made for only $6.

If you’re a Verizon customer and a Star Wars fan, you can swing out to select stores (while supplies last) and pick up a free Star Wars-themed Google Cardboard VR viewer as part of their #WhyNotWednesday promotion.

The viewers can be used in conjunction with the “Jakku Spy” content that’s available through the official Star Wars app, which is designed to give fans a taste of what it’s like to be a spy for the Resistance. It will be the first of nine virtual reality missions that will be released leading up to the premiere of The Force Awakens.

Verizon sent us some sample viewers, and while not functionally different than a standard Google Cardboard viewer, they are pretty cool collector’s items. Plus, if you haven’t tried one out before, you’ll really dig the VR experience that apps like Star Wars and Google Street View can provide.

Check out a promotional video below to see how the viewers work.
