I’m fascinated with CNC machines. I think it comes back to my childhood love of Legos, and my current fascination with cars and trucks. That’s why I love products like this, even though it’s not quite yet on the market.
It’s called the Vapor, and it’s an all-aluminum case made by ElementCase. It’s carved from pieces of aluminum, and then you bolt it together to insert it on your iPhone. But since this thing is made of aluminum, which is a conductive metal, doesn’t that cause even more problems with the Antennagate issue? Guess not:
The inside of the Vapor case is lined with a very high tech shock absorbing material that reduces the G-forces of an impact. It also createsÂ a non-conductive barrier to help maintain the iPhone’s antenna signal strength.
Nice. Right now, this is still vaporware – pardon the pun – but hopefully it is put out on the market soon. Yes, $79.99 is a bit pricey for a case, but it’s made out of carved aluminum, and apparently there may be some customizable etching available in the future as well. Here’s to hoping it actually gets built.
