Design and model a crazy new accessory for the brand new iPhone 5 and win big.
From cases to docks to integrated keyboards, we're judging submissions based on two factors:
1. How creative is your idea? Does anything like it exist? (hint: we hope not!)
2. How easy is your design to manufacture?
The iPhone 5, touted by Apple as the "thinnest, lightest, fastest iPhone ever," provides a massive opportunity for you to rethink how people interact with their smartphones. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
TO GET YOU STARTED:
Both of these designs are based on the official Apple iPhone 5 specifications: https://developer.apple.com/resources/cases/dimensions/iPhone-5-dimensions.pdf
