Palmo Series: Innovative Multi-Function Case for iPhone 2015

Project Description

iPhone screens are bigger every year. People have been frustrated that their fingers don't reach to every corner, and some have dropped their iPhone or felt nervous about it. Palmo for iPhone would solve these problems and the users will be able to enjoy a stable, safe, and secure iPhone life.

Palmo is an ultra-light (14g), anti-shock, and fall-prevention iPhone case specifically designed to reduce smartphone disabilities and better user
experience. Its ergonomic X-form design and flexible silicone material allows the finger to be grip between the phone and case, which not only prevents the phone from dropping, but also improves stability with better single-hand control without any anxiety.

With the elegant smooth arc-form back, Palmo makes phone usage less stressful as it fits nicely in the hand, and allows for a secure grip, thus
harmonizing the user and iPhone. Even for any busy occasions such as in public transportation, concert, tourist spots, and when lying down, users
can use their phones with one finger and quickly respond without dropping it. And with the minimal X-design, it is able to use from any posture, angle, whether vertical or horizontal, and easy to use and maintain even for children and women.

Different from other existing iPhone accessories, the thick corners of Palmo solve the impact weakness and instability while lying flat. This anti-shock performance has been validated by the US Military for shock/drop resistance (MIL-STD-810G), Palmo has a friendly design for the iPhone, people and earth. Its intuitive design requires no manual, and the X-design efficiently dissipates heat off the phone. It has been tested by a third-party laboratory (Institute of Sport, Senshu Univ. in Tokyo) for reducing smartphone disabilities and the psychological stress.

Using Palmo will alleviate pressure on fingers and prevent “text thumb injury” , a long-term deformation of the fingers, and also improve posture
as it prevents neck slouch and damage to the nerves and muscles. As silicone is recyclable, the defective products are recycled and resold as new products.
