# 8 Yellow Jacket Case
Yellow Jacket is a product from a Baton Rouge-based startup that protects your phone from damage but will also be able to protect you. The Yellow Jacket is a case that is also equipped with a stun gun that can deliver 650,000 volts of electricity. That’s enough voltage to hurt you pretty bad, but it can’t put you in the hospital. There is even a protective cover that prevents the stun from sending thousands of volts of electricity into your thigh. While it is primarily designed to protect you and your phone from harm, it also conveniently comes with the capability to charge your phone! For around 200 USD you can walk around a little safer knowing your phone is fully charged and ready to stun.
# 7 Spraytect iPhone Case
For some people, a Stun Gun iPhone case might be too extreme, and you may prefer a less intense form of self-defense attached to your phone. In that case, you might want to swing for the Spraytect iPhone case, a phone that comes with a pepper spray compartment that lets you easily defend yourself against creeps. It has multiple safety precautions to make sure you don’t accidentally set it off when you don’t mean to. It even comes in multiple fun colors like hot pink and blue.
# 6 Celluon Virtual Keyboard
The Celluon Virtual Keyboard is an accessory that will let you turn any flat surface into a keyboard for any Bluetooth capable device, including your smartphone! It uses a sensor and red light projector to create a fully functional keyboard that lets you type long text essays into your phone without breaking your thumbs. The fact that it looks like an object straight out of a early 2000’s movie hacker’s backpack is either a bonus or a drawback depending on your preferences.
# 5 FLIR ONE
FLIR is a developer that sells thermal imaging technology to both military and law enforcement but has now started developing this tech for smartphones. You can now use that same thermal imaging for your own totally innocent and not dubious reasons. For just 250 dollars you can have the camera with a built-in battery that can even be used as a backup battery for your iPhone.
# 4 Vyne
We have all been there: trying to lounge around comfortably while watching videos on our phone. It can get pretty uncomfortable and result in sore arms. With the Vyne, you can rest your phone comfortably around your shoulders and binge watch Netflix on your phone for hours without straining your precious arm or hand muscles.
# 3 Joey Bra
The JoeyBra is the product of a Kickstarter that aimed to be the world’s first “sexy, comfortable, pocketed bra”that is primarily used to hold your phone but also works as a pocket for whatever else you could imagine. This may be one of the weirder cases for a phone ever invented but is certainly pretty useful. As long as you are wearing a sleeveless top or dress you can easily pull your phone in and out of the Joey Bra, but it is likely pretty awkward to do when you’re wearing a T-shirt.
# 2 Kissenger
Professor Adrian Cheok is a computing teacher at City University London who has, among other things, developed the Kissenger – a device that will allow you to turn your phone into a long distance kissing device. You plug in your smartphone to see your partner as you kiss and send each other kisses. The devices are equipped with silicone and motion sensors that mimic the other person’s movements and transmit them to the other device. This creates a relatively realistic simulation of kissing your partner. Early testers of the product reported that it felt more like intense phone vibrations rather than the realistic pressure of a kiss. Others using more recent iterations of the product report that it is fairly realistic. While there are plans to simulate the smell of the other person’s scent, there are (fortunately) not any plans to simulate saliva.
# 1 Isopod iPhone Case
This is the perfect iPhone case for lovers of the deep sea dwelling crustacean known as the isopod. For some, the idea of a giant creepy crawly creature curling up against your ear might be horrifying, but with this case, you can make that seem cute. The exoskeleton looks smooth and minimalist, but the underside is either fortunately or unfortunately very detailed and realistic. While the case might cover up your front facing camera, it makes up for that by adding a good 6 or so inches to the length of your phone and making it impossible to put it into your pocket.
