Bodyguardz mykase Turns my iPhone into a Gear Diary Phone Listen to this article


Back in January we posted a look at Bodyguardz new mykase for iPhone 4S. The case allows you to protect your iPhone while changing the look to fit your mood thanks to an innovative swappable back plate. Here’s the video look at it in action.

Well the mykase is even more customizable than that. You see, the company now allows you to purchase one-of-a-kind custom back plates that you can make yourself right on their website.

The customization engine is easy to use and walks you through the process step by step. You can upload a favorite image, adjust it to your liking, preview it to make sure it is perfect and then… order your new back plate. That’s exactly what I did!

I took the logo of my favorite website, sized and rotated it until I was happy with the look and then hit “Order”.

The new plate slides right into the case I picked up at CES. And the result…

You can see for yourself!

The case is a nicely protective slider case that gives good “lay on the table” protection. And now that it is customized with the plate I made it is a one-of-a-kind case… and a walking advertisement for Gear Diary! I love it.

The mykase starter kit is $29.95. Extra back plates cost $9.95 each and a customized back plate will run you $19.95. You can check them all out on the product page.
