When it comes to iPhone there is no dearth of innovative accessories. Now we have Oaxis, a consumer technology company that has announced InkCase IVY. Well, the Oaxis cases have always been different from the others as they come with an e-ink display at the back which will allow users to access the smart assistant. Make no mistake it’s not a Siri kind of virtual assistant instead it’s more like a virtual sticky note that can be reused.
Unlike the other cases from Oaxis, the InkCase IVY comes with a smaller 2.13-inch e-ink display with anti-glare properties, diminishing eye strain and lets users connect with the case with ease. The InkCase IVY is capable of displaying the time, fitness activities and also scannable membership barcodes. Well, the list doesn’t just stop here, the IVY case also offers a to-do list, calender reminders, and also display notifications selectively. Since its an E-Ink display with a single charge, the case is good to go for up to two months.
Also since the case is constructed using BubblePro Technology which is made up of millions of Micro Weaves that are designed to absorb energy from an impact. The caveat however is that the case can only be controlled via the companion app. The makers of the case insist that looking at the E-Ink display will reduce the visual fatigue. Thankfully the case doesn’t add much bulk to the iPhone at 55gms and adds up to 3.1mm as far as thickness is concerned. The case has been tested for 22 drops from a height of 240cm and the case can withstand direct sunlight.
InkCase IVY for iPhone 7 is up for preorders, the black and white ones are priced at $49 (regular $69) while the special edition wood finishes of black and rosewood, white and maplewood is priced at $52 (regular $75). The cases will start shipping starting from 31 of March. The discounted preorder price is something that should make this a great value for money deal, one can go for an InkCase IVY as opposed to a regular rugged case as IVY is both beautiful and offers an additional display to catch up with your stuff.
