After pending for a long time, I’m closer than ever to the new i-Phone 3Gs which will arrive this Friday! Not from the Apple HQ but from two of the most important people of my life…my soul mates M+T, as my birthday present...And there is no need to mention that I have already started my research for an i-Phone case……..and no matter what your beliefs are, I have to admit as a former-physicist that I strongly believe in the LAW of Affinity. Because my research came to an end today when I received an e-mail for a Yatzer submission from Mr. Daniel Schaumann of gorilla-cases®, a young enterprise located in Berlin/Germany, which produces carbon fiber cases for iPhone (3G/3Gs) and iPod touch.
If you have been also searching for a unique case for carrying your Apple devices such as iPhones and i-Pods then I definitely suggest the free of any extra weight and size, gorilla-cases which are able to protect our devices even after an unexpected fall!
They are available in two versions: the Carbon and the Nature Edition which are both fitted with a unique flip strap, a super ejection mechanism patented exclusively by gorilla cases® which seems to work simple and fast (If you are curious to learn how the gorilla flipstrap works, watch an interesting video here) /// I’m sure that I will have my personal experience soon, as I’ve already made my order!
carbon fiber edition
Several layers of resin impregnated high-strength carbon fibers are hot-pressed and brought into shape. Gorilla’s production line is using high tech industrial adhesive to assembly the carbon fiber parts with fiber-reinforced side pieces. Out comes the gorilla tube; and although Carbon is super strong, light and very expensive, that's why we only find it in high-end products, where small weight and extreme stability are required at the same time, these cases are affordable for our precious Apple devices.
PRICES: 79.99€ for the carbon fiber and 49.99€ for the natural fiber editions
All gorilla tubes are designed in Berlin-Kreuzberg and handcrafted in Germany.
natural fiber edition
The production of artificial fibers such as carbon fibers requires a lot of energy. gorilla cases co-operates with the automobile industry, whereby they are now able to present their "Nature Edition" where fiber-reinforced high tech plastics are replaced by eco-friendly raw materials such as Jute. These natural fiber compounds are produced in a special manufacturing process. They are not as strong as carbon fibers but share very similar characteristics. Environmental protection should concern everyone.
