MacGyver might even make good use out of the ReadyCase for the iPhone

MacGyver might even make good use out of the ReadyCase for the iPhone
Talk about versatility! Well, if you grew up back in the 80s, you’ll surely remember the always inventive MacGyver, who managed to somehow always get out of situations by coming up with homemade goodies. Interestingly enough, we might actually have an iPhone case that’s worthy enough to appease good ‘ole MacGyver himself.

If you’re looking for that all-in-one type of case for the iPhone 4/4S/5, you don’t need to look any further than the ReadyCase. In maintaining the smartphone’s slim figure, the ReadyCase is constructed out of aerospace grade composite materials, but even better, it’s form fitting to minimize the bulk normally associated with cases. Going beyond that, however, is the fact that the ReadyCase is seemingly the Swiss Army knife of all iPhone cases.

Specifically, it also features a USB thumb drive (8GB or 16GB), an adjustable kickstand for landscape/portrait viewing, quick-snapping lens rings that provide for macro/fish eye/wide angle shots, and a multi tool set that consists of a standard blade, serrated blade, flat head screwdriver, and a bottle opener. Heck, we’re almost certain that MacGyver can cook up some crazy contraption with the help of the ReadyCase.

Are you not sold by its versatility? Well, then you ought to check out the video below to see what the commotion is all about. As for price, you can make a $40 pledge on Kickstarter to guarantee yourself the base model of the ReadyCase – the 8GB flash drive model. Depending on which one you choose, its price ranges from $40 up to $150 for the Limited Edition one.

The only problem with the case it contains a blade that's not allowed thru a TSA security checkpoint. Better to leave the blade in your check-in luggage.

No Blade is allowed through TSA. I would much rather all cases have blades and have to put them in checked bags.

If i want to put my phone in a case.. why would i even care how my phone looks like? what material it was made from? what colour options are there? how many ounces it weigh? whether it is the thinnest iphone in human/elves/hobbits history!!!

I also have noticed that a lot of people are crying about phone's design, size and after that they put cases on their phones which make them even bigger and uglier. Sad but truth, that's why important good build quality then you don't need any ugly cases. ;)

Yeah, there are even "PATENTS" for shape and how a phone corners should and shouldn't be. Otherwise it is the BIGGEST sins of smartphone world. Then they hide this glorious invention with a case??
