The ReadyCase is a multifunctional and multi-tool iPhone case, which had been originally funded through Indiegogo. If you’re not familiar with Indiegogo, they’re a funding platform or crowd funding site, which is a donation based fundraising for businesses or creative projects. Kickstarter is a more well known website, and it features the same sort of system for raising capital for projects.
The ReadyCase is an iPhone case, which is part Swiss Army and MacGyver and techno-weenie all tossed into a blender. It’s a pretty cool geek toy that has enough useful features to satisfy just about anyone. The case has a headphone clip, interchangeable camera lens ring, removable USB drive (8 and 16 GB), kickstand using the USB, and a multi-tool. The multi-tool has a standard blade, serrated blade, flat-head screwdriver, and bottle opener.
The Indiegogo ReadyCase pre-order campaign closed for funding on Oct 24th after passing initial its original $15,000 goal with a massive $125,000 final tally. You can pre-order the ReadyCase through http://www.ready-case.com/, and the case will be shipped sometime in February 2013, when it’s on the open market.
