hyperkin-game-boy-iphone

Hyperkin (makers of the RetroN 5 game console) pulled an internet April Fool’s product joke straight from ThinkGeek’s playbook to gather feedback on their new product. With tons of retro gaming emulators on the market for your PC, the “Smart Boy” will actually let you play old Nintendo Game Boy cartridges on your iPhone.

Chris Gallizzi, of Hyperkin’s design and product development team, released a few photos of the iPhone case design on Reddit. It started out as a “joke”, but was quickly greenlit. He even revealed that an open side-panel version for Android phones is in the works.

Check out the design details after the break.

avengers charms

If turning your iPhone into a DeLorean time machine is a bit over the top, adding one of these Avengers: Age Of Ultron charms is the next most ridiculous thing.

Actually, they’re probably a little too awesome and unwieldily to be charms. I mean, they’re 3-4 inches tall and they light up.

The other problem is that you have to purchase them in a set of five for $73.50. Pricey yes, but wait until you see the Hulkbuster version after the break…

batmobile iphone case

We were obsessed with making phones smaller and smaller. Lately, Apple has been obsessed with making phones bigger and thinner. Now you’re obsessed with making your phone into a perfect replica of a Tim Burton-era Batmobile. Thats what I call progress.

Seriously though, if you don’t mind your iPhone 6 becoming completely unwieldy, this Batmobile case is undeniably badass. It looks great, but there are also features like LED lighting, a utility belt covering the home button and a friggin’ projector on the back that shines the Batman logo on the wall.

It’s waaaaay over-the-top, and that’s why we love it. Check out more pics and a demo video after the break…

Original-Bunny-Phone-Case2

Cute animals are popular and custom smartphone cases are popular. Naturally, someone on Twitter decided to combine these two things and uploaded a photo of what was creatively called a “bunny smartphone case.” The photo, posted above, was retweeted more than 37,000 times and has spawned a whole new meme.

Groot-Selfie

Groot is a creature of few words, but just the same, he’s a fan of texting. You can even send him a text at 866-740-4531 and he’ll respond with exactly what you’d expect. You can thank Twilio employee Ricky Robinett for this little bit of fun. He tweeted out the news a few days ago and in no time Groot sent out tens of thousands of text messages!
