RE-case is the first of a line of
products made from a new type of materials called POLLIBER, a post-consumer
thermoplastic and semi-carbonized waste fiber composite. This is a range of
composites that Miniwiz developed, and RE-case for iPhone 4 is the debut product.
It will be commercially
available in Germany and Japan early September, shoppers can also order
directly from the Miniwiz online store.
RE-case’s design was inspired by the Japanese INRŌ, a carrying
case for identity seals used in the Edo Period which also served as a worry
stone. Instead of a seal, RE-case holds an RFID (radio frequency ID,
such as those for office security or public transit) or wave-able credit card
between itself and the user’s iPhone. The graduated design improves grip and
texture while retaining the aesthetic qualities of the INRŌ.
