ThePhoneCoat gives your phone an almost-invisible layer of protection

With a Kickstarter goal of $6,143 surpassed more than five-times over by the $34,659 pledged, it appears that ThePhoneCoat will be going into mass production. The product is a thin .2mm transparent skin that covers the entire side of a phone. Separate skins are offered for the front and back sides of compatible handsets. It is almost invisible, and nanotechnology allows ThePhoneCoat to be self-healing. Scratches on its surface disappear with the use of a personal hairdryer.

ThePhoneCoat is unbreakable and protects your handset from shock. It also makes the device easier to grip. Installing the protective layer is easy to do, and until April 26th, you can still pledge $43 USD to receive ThePhoneCoat for both sides of your smartphone (or two fronts/backs). To see if your device is compatible with this second skin, go to and click on the box that reads "Find Your Device." The product will start shipping this summer.

If you hate putting a case on your phone but still would like to protect your handset from drops, ThePhoneCoat would seem to be the perfect solution. ThePhoneCoat is also available for tablets. Check out the product's Kickstarter page by clicking on the sourcelink. And don't forget to view the video showcasing the protective second skin, which we've embedded at the top of this story.

I always wanted dBrand to offer a clear skin, alas, they do not. Plus, this seems like more protection than a simple 3M wrap (but time will tell.)

Seeing that it's basically a clear plastic film, it could probably turn yellow over time. Just like those clear TPU cases

I absolutely want that. I like having my phone out of a case and those recent curved and softer glass are a nightmare to protect. That could be a great solution!

So it's a clear full body skin like Ultimate Shield offers?

Zagg had the same protection before. I remember when i had the Palm Pre i bought the full shield form Zagg. Some one at Best Buy installed for me. It was very hard to install it. When i dropped the phone it broke in to pieces. This is not innovation. ZAGG Had it before.

It's just a clear wrap that will protect from scratches but it won't stop the phone from breaking if you drop it.

I have been using skinomi brand clear full body protection skins for years, my first use of a full body skin was on my HTC Inspire. They work awesome.

Isn't it like the skin found on the Moto z force, if it is would be nice time will tell

Purest BS I ever saw. This coat will not protect against bumps in hard floors, the housing will still be kneaded leaving dents depending on the floor type, the self healing is a good plus, but it is still just some kind of plastic wrap...
