ReCover iPhone case

It’s neat, witty – and nicely made, too

This deeply silly but amusing iPhone 4 case disguises your phone as an old school calculator (not a working one), which is both a nice joke and, conceivably, a way of dissuading thieves from pinching it when you leave it momentarily in a public place.

OK, that’s perhaps slightly overstating the case for the ReCover case, but it’s a nicely made and genuinely useful bit of protection. There are two other designs available – a 1980s-looking game controller and an Instamatic-style camera of the same era. Neat, and not uncool.
