In case you have never attended the International CES, let me break it down for you. The North Hall is the place to be for iPhone and smartphone accessories. Anything that clips to or pairs with a smartphone is on display, and it is here that you will find Otterbox, Speck, and all the other big names in the phone case industry.
A world away in the South Hall, I came across a company called VYSK that offered a different kind of phone case. While other cases are concerned with protecting your phone from physical damage such as drops and spills, VYSK is the only case concerned with protecting your phone’s data.
It is my opinion that privacy over your personal information is poised to become a great battle of the 21st century. Currently, it’s a bit like the Wild West with every company and service governing itself regarding user data. The idea behind VYSK is that a case should offer protection from all forms of electronic intrusion by offering physical and software methods for protecting user data.
Mobile accessories very rarely offer something extremely unique and artistic. Minnesota based John Woodland and Jon Lucca have earned both of those titles with their new line of paper iPhone cases called Twig. I was completely unaware of Twig until a co-worker of mine was looking extremely fashionable with her new Wilco phone case. Personally, the draw to the case had nothing to do with the band Wilco, but everything to do with the detail, artistic vision, and the fact that these cases were actually made of stacks of paper. At first glance the works of art resembled Andre Amador’s beach drawings, but on a phone case. The one downfall is you will pay a premium to own one. Twig will attract a niche market who will be okay with paying between 60 and 80 USD for an iPhone case. On the flip side these cases are 100% made from start to finish in Minnesota. Keep in mind there is also a 30 day try policy, and a six month guarantee of defects. That’s what I call product confidence. Twig’s website showcases product only for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, and 5S.
