Materials 6 Wood iPhone Backs

With the iPhone 4, Apple truly created a masterpiece of design, harkening to the late 50s and early 60s days of Leica cameras and Braun hifis, when the stark simplicity of metal and glass were complemented with natural materials, resulting in a understated and simple beauty of form and function. However, the newest iPhone’s all-glass backplate has the potential to ruin the elegance of Apple’s design through being prone to breakage, scratching and dropping. Replacing this element of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S adds a layer of texture that enhances its beauty while providing durability that glass simply can not match.

The Suitcase That Charges Your Devices

Designer Jung Inyoung has created this pretty cool concept for a suitcase that would store kinetic energy from rolling it through the airport to charge your cell phone and other gadgets. The suitcase is fixed with a big gear on the outside of the wheel and a smaller one on the inside. As the sleek, hard-shelled container is wheeled around, it accrues and stores kinetic energy. Devices can be plugged into the portable battery, which is fed by a charge battery, and an LED light indicates just how much power is stored.
