A Truly Green iPhone Case!

A Truly Green iPhone Case!

Many of you already have iPhones, but after yesterday's iPhone announcement, a lot more folks are going to be lining up for the new iPhone 4s (as a Sprint subscriber, I'll finally be joining the Apple smartphone minions). So, how to protect this pricey investment? I have friends who have broken as many as four of these babies (insane!). How about a sturdy case made of trash? Yup, you read that right: trash.

Miniwiz, a design firm based in Taiwan, has come up with a revolutionary new material called POLLIBERâ„¢. It is manufactured from rice farming by-products, combined with post-consumer-thermo-plastics. The discarded rice husks actually add back mechanical strength to the recycled plastic that normally lost in the recycling process.

The Re-Case also does double-duty by having a space inside for an RFID, payWave or security key card. It could certainly lead to a lot fewer lost key cards!

Visit Miniwiz's homepage to keep up-to-date for when these will be available stateside. I hope it's soon!
