We were pointed to this neat new Kickstarter project called the FLASHr case for the iPhone 4 and 4S. The concept is simple, and the designers of the case pulled it off very well. Starting in iOS 5, there is a setting on iPhones with a rear-facing LED flash (the iPhone 4 and 4S) to light up the flash when notifications, calls, etc. come in. When your iPhone is resting on your desk, a table, or some other object, that LED light becomes useless due to the iPhone’s flat design. The designers of the FLASHr, though, created an elegant solution. A case that takes the LED notification light and allows it to glow brightly via a slew of well-designed and colorful cases. Check it out on Kickstarter.
