Up to 1 in 4 British iPhone owners using handset with broken screen

By | Bumprz Blog | No Comments

IntoMobile posted this sad statistic of 25% percent of British iPhone owners using the phone with a broken screen.

Someone, do something — quick! Oh, right. Matt already did. Yep, this is exactly why Matt invented Bumprz by Case of Steel — to put an end to broken iPhone screens.

To our friends across the pond, you needn’t suffer any further. Head over to Kickstarter and procure a set of Bumprz for yourself: the best insurance you can get for your iPhone’s screen.

Better yet, let’s petition the royal palace to order a set of Bumprz for every person owning an iPhone. They could think up an über chic engendering catch phrase… something unique, like… say “An Bumprz on every iPhone.” Ok, scratch that. Maybe you should get your own set of Bumprz, after all.

By | Bumprz Blog, Press Reviews | No Comments

Shapeways, our faithful 3d printing partner from Bumprz inception, took notice of Bumprz maturity.

“We love to see innovative Shapies pushing the envelope and making their dreams come true. Take, for instance, Matt Veenstra of Case of Steel. What started as frustration—iPhone 5 screen keeps breaking but bulky cases are annoying—turned into some sketches. Followed by 3D designs, prototyping on Shapeways, and now a Kickstarter to break through the world of bulky phone cases with Bumprz™, the the world’s most minimal iPhone case.

“Made of strong metals and attached with amazing 3M adhesives, Bumprz protects your iPhone 5 while adding a bit of bling to it. Great for the minimalist in all of us!”

Phones Review gave a glowing review to Bumprz:

“There are so many iPhone cases on the market but all they do is cover up the whole design and look of the handset itself, the iPhone 5S for example is an expensive product so why would you want to hide it just to protect it – Say hello to the new Bumprz, which eliminates and mocks all other iPhone cases.”

Bumprz by Case of Steel Makes the Case for No Case

Bumprz by Case of Steel Makes the Case for No Case
The Fully-Protective and Stylish “Anti-Case” for your iPhone 5.
Aims to Raise $25,000 in 30 days on Kickstarter.

OAKLAND, Calif. – Smart phones keep getting sleeker, slimmer and more stylish. Everyone lines up to get the next great model, only to cover its design completely by slapping a bulky, plastic case over it for protection.

 

Case of Steel solves that problem by introducing Bumprz®, an innovative new “anti-case” that is revealing, beautiful, elegant, and yet still completely protective. Bumprz® allow you to keep your iPhone 5 or 5s in a near virgin form while still providing ample protection. Watch the drop tests for yourself, where creator Matt Veenstra drops, throws and tosses his Bumprz clad iPhone 5s to the ground again and again. And guess what? It survives.

 

Matt Veenstra, creator of Bumprz®, had broken too many screens in the past, and wanted an effective way to protect his phone while keeping it as close to how the designers intended. Matt, along with designer Jeff Tobler, set out to make a “case” to beautify and protect their iPhones with minimal coverage. The brick case had to go.

 

“We wanted to engineer a case to protect and beautify our phones that was low profile so it easily fits in your pocket or purse,” says Bumprz® creator Matt Veenstra. “We went through a lot of different ideas, sketches, and then prototypes. What we ended up with is Bumprz®, stylish and sleek protection for your phone that allows you experience the design of your iPhone without the obligatory bulk of traditional cases.”

 

Bumprz® are offered in a polished or matte finish in silver or gold (303 stainless steel or phosphor bronze 544) and are only 0.7mm thick. The metal absorbs the impact and with the help of the 3M adhesive directs the forces to the face and side of the device where the device can handle high compressive and shear forces without failing.

 

Bumprz® are currently available on Kickstarter, a crowd-funding site where Case of Steel aims to raise $25,000 in 30 days. The first 100 backers can pre-purchase their own set of Bumprz® for only $10 (additional shipping costs for addresses outside the U.S.), a second round of 250 backers will receive Bumprz® with a $15 pledge, and an unlimited amount of backers can get Bumprz® for $20, which is still 33% off the retail price. If the funding goal is met, Bumprz® will ship with an estimated delivery in April 2014.
