I personally like the iPhone 5’s design. It’s sleek, it feels solid and the choice of materials makes it feel like a premium gadget, but unfortunately it’s the same materials that has led to me fussing over my phone like it is super fragile. Some of you guys might have heard stories where the edges or even the back of the aluminum body of the iPhone 5 has been scratched due to aluminum being a softer metal, and in order to prevent that happening and to preserve the design of the device as much as possible, I went for the most minimalist case I could find. Some of you guys might have done the same but if you think that it still does not showcase the design of your iPhone, then perhaps the Radius iPhone 5 case might be a case worth looking at. At the moment Radius is a Kickstarter project and is currently seeking funding for what can be described as one of the most minimalistic iPhone 5 cases you can find.


As you can see in the rendering above, the Radius is a “case” (if it can even be called that) that hooks onto the four corners of your iPhone. Each corner piece features a non-slip lining and is made from aircraft-grade aluminum and has been raised ever so slightly so that when your phone is placed on its front, the screen will not be touching the table or surface. The “X” at the back presumably does the same. Of course this by no means protects the sides of your iPhone which we guess would be one of its flaws, but given its super simple nature, we’re sure that some of you guys out there wouldn’t mind getting your hands on it. At this time of posting the Radius has surpassed its Kickstarter goal, so head on over if you’d like to find out how to pre-order one for yourself or to learn more about it.
