Sound of protection: iPhone case made from 3D-printed sound

1193 0

Taking 3D printing further into the public domain, Shapeways has paired with SoundCloud – a social sound platform – to print whatever ‘sound’ you wish as a physical iPhone case.

You connect to SoundCloud, upload or select your favourite sound, and the waveform will integrate into the very structure of the iPhone case. The result is a unique protective case, available in top-quality white or black 3D printed plastic.

It’s a great idea for a partnership (the link between music, the iPhone, and a personal case), while explaining the squiggles on the back can be equally customised depending on who you want to impress (can you tell the difference between “My child’s first words”; “My favourite A-Ha remix” or “My favourite track off that new mix tape out of Cleveland“?)
