Cabin recruits aluminium and magnets to become the best iPhone external battery case yet
Great, but how do we get data connection when the Lighting port is sealed off? Easy - there's a MagAdapter accessory for the Lighting cable itself, and the Cabin Dock has a microUSB port with the ability to transmit data to the phone through the magnets.
Seeing the attention to detail on display here, it'd be fair to say that Cabin is not just an accessory, but a compliment to the iPhone. The project has been funded already, and the delivery target is October. Learn more from the source link below.

Looks nice but I cant help but think about muffled speaker sound...
Other than that, pretty good design

Also the mic is completely blocked as well
Very nice idea, hopefully they fix that in the final product

also, another concern might be the magnet being so close of the speaker... it could affect the speaker's magnet, sound and also integrity....
And it would definitely affect the digital Magnetometer sensor on the phone...

Oh didnt think of that
Also that magnet is the only thing holding the phone, so its gona be a quite power magnet as well

Would you trust a magnet to hold your phone?
