So imagine what you would get if a swiss army knife and a smartphone case had a baby. First off, I’d suggest a couple of months of therapy for having such a strange vision. But secondly, you’d get IN1′s Multi-Tool Utility Case for the Apple iPhone 5/5s. Within the case itself, you’ll find a few pens, screwdrivers, tweezers, scissors, and several other airport compliant tools that you may need to get you out of a pinch. Keiko Alingas gets the full lowdown.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The IN1 case is a rugged but beautifully designed multi-tool/phone case perfect for people on the go. It has a variety of tools that you can use in a variety of ways. These tools are aimed to be helpful with everyday tasks. So whilst the IN1 case won’t assist you in removing and rebuilding a gearbox from a 1985 GMC Pacer or help you slay, skin and cook a wildebeest, they will help with day to day tasks such as writing notes and cutting open packages. Also by leaving the Cross Bow and Bowie Knife attachment off the IN1 case it has allowed us to make it fully TSA Compliant. Yes! That’s right the IN1 case is also TSA compliant! Which means that you can plan a trip with your new lover without being scared of holding up the queue explaining that it isn’t a weapon, it is actually just a phone case (they might still be interested in its fantastic design though).
It is available in White, Black, and Clear. You can also pick the colors of the tools you want making it highly customizable to your taste. So customize yours and improve your life!
